Yale Europe Materials Handling has unveiled its highest capacity truck to date - the GDP160EC12. The latest edition to the Yale EC Series is capable of lifting 16 T at a 1. m load centre, allowing cumbersome and odd-sized loads to be carried more effectively. The new high capacity truck transports Yale into a new range of handling applications where a longer load centre is required. "Yale is very proud to add the GDP160EC12 to its growing range of materials handling equipment," says David Reeve, wood industry manager for Yale. "Based on feedback from customers and dealers, every design element of this truck has been carefully considered to ensure it achieves maximum dependability in the most demanding applications. The capacity of the truck allows it to deliver outstanding performance when handling lumber, steel, concrete and other heavy loads." The Yale EC Series comes with 2.440m integral forks for optimised capacity and visibility as standard, and an extended range of pin or hook type carriages are available, allowing the truck to be customised to meet the needs of specific applications. "Yale pin type carriages can deliver maximum capacity with maximum sideshift available in any fork position on apron-style carriages. Dual function sideshift and fork positioning (DFSSFP) carriages featuring hook type mountings are ideally suited to applications that require a quick and easy exchange between forks and attachments," says Reeve. "The GDP160EC12 is both durable and versatile, making it an excellent extension of the Yale high capacity truck range. The 1200mm load centre, carriage range and optimised operator visibility are testament to the ergonomic values that run throughout the entire range of Yale equipment."
