Hyster-Yale Asia Pacific is delivering the latest Yale forklift range to the region for clients seeking cost-effective handling solutions for low-hour requirements.

The Yale UX Series are available in a variety of six capacities from 1.5-3.5 tonnes, and have been designed for materials handling without the need for advanced functionalities for tasks.

“The new Yale UX Series has been developed for low-hour applications and is priced accordingly,” said Hyster-Yale Asia-Pacific managing director Tony Fagg.

“It’s uncomplicated design results in easy operation and service that eliminate non-core features that add complexity and unnecessary maintenance costs for particular applications.”

“The rationale of this “Yale - Simply Efficient” range has at its core the understanding that, if your forklift usage is only around four hours a day, you don’t need a more expensive forklift that has been designed to handle all day, every day applications.”

The Yale UX range is designed to work up to 1,000 hours a year and aims to meet productivity targets while keeping operating costs low as a solution individual to each user's needs.
