Yale has confirmed that Stage V-compliant trucks will be available by the end of this year and has also announced it is to present its material handling technologies at an in-house event.
From the fourth quarter of 2018, the European arm of the business will be taking orders for Yale trucks powered by engines that meet the strictest emission regulations in Europe.
The new EU standards will come into force on January 1, 2019, for diesel and LPG engines from 19-56kW and above 130kW. For engines in the 56-130kW range the standards will take effect a year later on January 1, 2020.
Stage V calls for a further reduction in particulate matter and levels of Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) from diesel engines and for the first time also the emissions of LPG engines installed in non-road mobile machinery.
EU Stage V legislations will enable the manufacture or import of materials handling equipment with a power level between 19kW and 56kW, and power level over 130kW that does not comply with Stage V, until June 30, 2020.
Likewise, for materials handling equipment with a power output of between 56kW and 130kW that does not comply with Stage V, the last permissible date to manufacture or import is June 30, 2021.
Yale Europe Materials Handling has confirmed that customers and dealers from across Europe, the Middle East and Africa are set to join it for two days in September (19 & 20) to experience the company’s material handling capabilities. The event will take place near Düsseldorf, Germany.
