Performance-optimizing design lands Yale® GOOD DESIGN™ award
Yale Materials Handling Corporation announces its MPR100VG enclosed end rider has received a 2015 GOOD DESIGN™ award. The enclosed end rider was selected for its state-of-the-art technology, enhanced ergonomic design and class-leading lifting capacity. The GOOD DESIGN awards are presented by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design, and honor the best industrial designers and world manufacturers for their pursuit of extraordinary design excellence.
“This recognition validates the continued commitment Yale has to delivering lift trucks with unparalleled performance and operator comfort,” said Clay Taylor, Product Manager for Yale. “The enclosed end rider embodies what we strive to provide customers with when creating a new product – a design that helps increase throughput, boosts operational efficiency and reduces costs.”
Engineered for demanding multi-shift applications, the MPR100VG enclosed end rider is equipped with Yale® iSi Technology™, a common control system with consistent functionality across the Yale® warehouse product line. The system also offers programmable performance modes which allow operators to customize truck performance to their individual skill level.
Ergonomically designed for maximum comfort and productivity, the enclosed end rider compartment features a contoured backrest, fully padded compartment and cushioned, electronic floor mat. The electronic floor mat contains a center mounted brake pedal and exclusive multi-zoned operator floor presence system, helping operators achieve a more natural stance during operation. The truck also contains a multifunction control handle which provides simultaneous control of travel and hydraulic functions, while the electric power steering enables a significant reduction in steer effort.
Built to handle 10,000 pounds of product, the MPR100VG enclosed end rider delivers the greatest lifting capacity of competitive end riders, while its 160-inch forks allow customers to transport up to four single-stacked or eight double-stacked pallets.
