Yale brings award-winning design concept to Rider Stacker
14 September 2017
Yale Europe Materials Handling announces the launch of the Rider Stacker model MS16S. It follows the same design language of the award-winning MPT Series Rider Pallet Truck combined with the improved through-mast visibility and precise handling of the MS10-20 and MS12-16IL Pedestrian Stackers.
Productivity and operator ergonomics continue to remain at the heart of the Yale® design process and both these elements are clear to see in the new Rider Stacker. Retaining the industry-recognised adaptive seat of the MPT truck, the new MS16S offers sit, lean and stand functionality at the touch of a button, giving operators full freedom of movement for medium or long transfers.
“This new Rider Stacker brings an award-winning design philosophy focussing on ergonomics, comfort and productivity into a single solution for operations involving the movement of pallets in and around warehouse racking systems,” said Ron Farr, manager for warehouse solutions at Yale. “For operators covering variable distances, it offers a single flexible yet effective solution combining comfort, security and controllability.”
Traditionally, operators chose between a medium distance platform stacker or a long distance rider stacker, but the no-compromise, flexible design means that the MS16S covers all bases.
By bringing together the award-winning ergonomics of the MPT Rider Pallet truck series with the visibility offered by the proven mast design featured on the MS10-20 range, operators can be confident of having not only a product that provides comfort during long shifts, but one that is also effective for a range of applications.
With a load carrying capacity of 1.6 tonnes and a tight turning circle combined with the option for the operator to stand while loading and unloading, the new MS16S aids productivity through easy positioning and manoeuvrability, even in narrow aisles. As such, it is ideally suited for back-of-store warehouse operations and single and multiple shift stacking applications in industries including food, beverage, logistics and retail.
