Yale has launched a new generation of electric counterbalance forklifts that has a 'one size fits all' seating design.

The VT and VF series features a new full-comfort seat designed in partnership with seat manufacturer Sears. The new forklifts can accommodate over 95% of operators in the height range of 160cm (5.24 foot) to 194cm (6.36 foot).

Yale engineers worked with a Finnish industrial design consultancy on the changing size of operators to develop an ergonomically advanced operator-working environment.

The VT and VF series has a low step height with three-point, easy access to the forklift, generous headroom and good forward visibility through the new 'clear view' mast.

The forklifts are available in lift capacities from 1.5 to 2.0 tonnes. The new extended steering axle of the VF model is capable for handling Euro-pallets. This allows the truck to operate in many existing three-wheel aisles while having four-wheel operating characteristics for indoor or outdoor applications.

Fact of the week

From 1912 to 1948, gold, silver and bronze medals were awarded for literature, architecture, sculpture, painting, and music as part of the modern Olympic Games. Art works were required to be inspired by athletic endeavors. After heated debate about their place in the games, the art events were eventually removed. The 151 medals awarded were officially stricken from the Olympic record.
