Lubrication and 'x' groove bushings at all pivot points.
The thicker, more durable undercarriage is designed to guard against dirt and debris, with felt washers that seal bushing locations to keep dirt out and lubrication in.
Large exit rollers equal those of the leading competitor. Increased exit roller size reduces pallets' tendency to drag.
1.00" flag-style linkage pins match the leading competitor's in size
1.00" threaded rod adjustment is comparable to the leading competitor. This extra weight increases the strength in the "fuse point" without changing the assembly or serviceability.
Reducing force in pull rod by 25% results in less wear and tear on the truck. Oversized pull rods tie linkage together for smooth lifting and lowering.
The design of the front linkage enhances truck performance. Extending the pivot arms helps reduce forces in the pin, and increasing the weight of the front yokes by 45% enhances their strength. Our engineers changed the front upper links from bar-stock to casting, and increased the weight by almost 70% to create a pallet jack that consistently outperformed the competition.
Your operation needs an end rider that can handle rigorous demands. From enhancing frame stability, to reinforcing our forks with 25 percent more steel, to engineering the undercarriage to protect all of the truck's most critical components, we've designed our heavy duty end riders to be the durable solution to your application's toughest challenge.
A 50% increase in steel on the standard forks and a 75% increase on double pallet forks gives this truck the strength to lift even the heaviest loads, and our single-piece casting puts less stress on the risers.
Enhanced frame has more metal in all the right places for greater strength and steadier load handling.
Fork tip is specifically designed for smooth pallet entry. Increasing fork-pallet interlocking pressure by 500% allows for successful pallet exit on the first try.
Springless, quick adjust, heavy duty casters enhance load handling stability, reduce maintenance time and resist damage from dock plates.
In an accelerated lift test of the full undercarriage linkage system, the Yale® end rider provided nearly three times the lift cycles than the leading competitor. A lift cycle equaled raising and lowering a load every five to seven seconds. Cycles continued until bushing or lift failure. Bushings were replaced and the testing started again. After three rounds of tests, the results were obvious.
We're so confident that our heavy duty end riders are the best in the industry, we spent 1000+ hours in an extreme cold storage application - that's 83 working days - to prove it.
* This test was performed without additional undercarriage lubrication to prove the extremes that our heavy duty end riders can handle before needing service. Yale recommends following proper maintenance procedures to maximize truck life.
