Yale Materials Handling Corporation announces its ESC030AD three-wheel stand has been honored as a bronze Plant Engineering Product of the Year Award winner. The Yale® three-wheel stand was recognized in the materials handling systems category for its ability to perform in extreme environments, while maximizing operator comfort and productivity.
“Having the three-wheel stand recognized for its performance, versatility and ability to optimize operator confidence and comfort, is validation of our commitment to understanding customer challenges, and helping them drive their business,” said Mick McCormick, Vice President of Warehouse Solutions for Yale. “The three-wheel stand offers an unparalleled option for customers looking for superior performance and increased labor productivity in a variety of applications and operating conditions.”
Extreme environments including cold storage, wash-down and food processing can be brutal on operators and components. The ESC030AD three-wheel stand is engineered to stand up to harsh environmental conditions and strict serviceability requirements with innovative features that help improve productivity across a wide range of applications. Yale knows that comfortable operators are often more productive. The three-wheel stand includes the Yale® Smart Ride Floor System which eliminates up to 65 percent of shock and vibrations transmitted to the operator, while the Clear View™ mast allows operators to easily stack and transport pallets with up to 40 percent greater visibility when compared to leading competitor configurations.
To increase productivity, the truck’s multi-function control handle allows for precision control, even in subzero applications when operators are wearing bulky freezer gloves. Additionally, with four battery compartment size options, the three-wheel stand offers the flexibility to fit virtually any application, providing improved maneuverability in tight spaces.
