Yale Europe Materials Handling has launched a new mid-range ICE counterbalance truck series. The MX series will initially be available in 2, 2.5 and 3 T versions and will be manufactured in Craigavon, Northern Ireland. The feature set is focused on providing core functionality for materials handling applications without the complexity and cost associated with the premium offering. "The affordability of a truck throughout its lifetime is extremely important in this very competitive sector," says Karen Calver, Yale product manager for counterbalance trucks. "Downtime is kept to a minimum through experienced dealer support, warranty options and comprehensive parts availability. Add to that affordable acquisition price and easy maintenance of its proven components and this functional machine is likely to be the go-to truck of choice for a variety of customer applications." The MX series follows the same design language as the Yale Veracitor VX series, which is the premium product in the Yale range. It is available in diesel, LPG, and dual-fuel configurations, with service intervals of 500 hours and the full back-up of Yale and its extensive dealer network. Economical to run, the MX series has a full suite of modern ergonomic features with driver comfort at the forefront of design and excellent noise and vibration performance, according to the manufacturer. It is responsive and highly productive, bringing affordable productivity to a wider range of customers.
