Yale Announces Attachment Ready Trucks to meet Demand for Integrated Solutions

GREENVILLE, N.C. – Specialized applications have little tolerance for attachment integration issues or malfunctions that could cause downtime and eat into profits. To streamline installation and improve reliability of its integrated solutions, Yale Materials Handling Corporation has announced a new line of attachment ready trucks. Engineered with a modified front end, these trucks allow for Bolzoni Auramo paper roll and bale clamp attachments to fit seamlessly on a broad range of Yale® cushion tire and pneumatic tire lift truck models.

The truck-to-clamp interface minimizes installation inconsistencies and can enhance attachment performance. 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.

“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,” said Chris Murtha, Brand Manager, Yale Materials Handling Corporation. “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 are specifically designed for use in heavy-duty applications like paper and recycling. Controlled clamp force, customized opening ranges and a wide selection of arm lengths and configurations are available to fit unique operational requirements.
