Yale Europe Materials Handling has launched its new MP16UX Pedestrian Pallet Truck. The truck is designed to be slimline, lightweight, and easily manoeuvrable, all while offering stability when handling goods.
According to Yale it is ideal for customers with intermittent or low intensity logistics operations who want the benefits of efficiency at an affordable price.
“For back of store operations requiring intermittent use of materials handling products, our latest pedestrian pallet truck offers a reliable truck combined with low energy consumption, making it an incredibly attractive offering,” says Eva Nachtergaele, solutions manager EMEA at Yale.
A compact truck with low energy consumptionTo reduce operator fatigue during a shift, the Yale MP16UX features a longer tiller arm with easily accessible butterfly controls, requiring less effort for the user to move loads.
The battery offers up to 12 hours shift life, accommodating store opening times. The fork options mean it will be able to handle common pallet sizes used in EMEA, lifting them up to 120mm. Spring-loaded castors improve lateral stability as the truck manoeuvres from A to B, and its soft lowering ensures loads are handled with care from start to finish.“The competitive energy consumption and long shift life of the Yale MP16UX is a key selling point of our latest pedestrian pallet truck,” says Nachtergaele. “Customers can be sure that this product is ready to work efficiently and effectively whenever it is required. It is compact and efficient – but importantly, at an affordable price with low cost of ownership. Our research suggests over 50% of the market is looking for a truck with this offering, and the Yale MP16UX is ready and waiting to deliver.”
