To streamline installation and improve reliability of its integrated solutions, Yale Materials Handling Corp., Greenville, North Carolina, has announced a new line of attachment-ready trucks. Engineered with a modified front end, these trucks allow Bolzoni Auramo paper roll and bale clamp attachments to fit on a broad range of Yale cushion tire and pneumatic tire lift truck models.
The truck-to-clamp interface is designed to minimize installation inconsistencies and can enhance attachment performance, Yale says. Yale attachment-ready trucks help assure that operations consistently use proper hydraulic hose sizing, hose routing and hydraulic fittings. This can extend the useful life of the lift truck and attachment by reducing the risk of hydraulic and engine overheating and engine component stress, the company says.
“Every minute in customer operations is critical. They simply can’t afford unexpected downtime and depend on their equipment to be up and running to meet demanding productivity schedules,” says Chris Murtha, brand manager for Yale. “This is especially true for operations that rely on specialized solutions like clamp-equipped forklifts. The attachment-ready trucks offered by Yale exemplify a commitment to meet our customers’ needs for integrated solutions that keep critical operations moving.”
Bolzoni Auramo paper roll and bale clamps specifically are designed for use in heavy-duty applications such as paper and recycling. Controlled clamp force, customized opening ranges and a wide selection of arm lengths and configurations are available to fit operational requirements, Yale says.
Yale Materials Handling Corp. markets a full line of materials handling lift truck products and services, including electric, gas, LP-gas and diesel-powered lift trucks; narrow aisle, very narrow aisle and motorized hand trucks. Yale trucks are manufactured in an ISO 9001:2008 registered facility and range in capacity from 2,000 to 36,000 pounds.
Yale is a division of Hyster-Yale Group, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hyster-Yale Materials Handling Inc., Cleveland.
