Reach Assembly & Carriage
Both the reach assembly and the carriage receive lots of stress during a normal work shift. To be able to make sure that the truck keeps productivity levels high, high durability of these things are certainly needed. Yale reach devices are engineered utilizing heavy-duty components for durability and long life. The reach assembly is cushioned at the end of the stroke for great durability and better operator ergonomics. Moreover, excellent visibility is provided with the optimal hose routing and the open carriage design.
The Reach Assembly Rear Carrier provides rigidity and durability by being mounted on angled load rollers in order to resist side to side forces. Additionally, the stronger inner frame assembly helps to endure shocks and vibration during handling load. The thick inner frame's side weldments have also been designed for durability.
The Reach Arm Mechanism is made up of tapered roller bearings at reach mechanism pivot points. The pivot points help to reduce the motion side to side and the twisting of the reach assembly throughout rough tasks. In order to decrease carriage twisting, dual reach cylinders are mounted. There are key pivot points that have grease fittings so as to ensure longer service life by providing lubrication.
Routed through a flexible track in order to reduce potential damage and binding are various hoses and wires. The carriage is one more important part. There is Reduced Carriage Travel Speed provided with Carriage Extended option so as to prevent high speed travel with the reach assembly extended. This helps to decrease stress on the reach mechanism itself.
A vital component to both the truck's overall uptime and the operator's confidence come from the mast's durability and rigidity. This is especially true at the tall lift heights where the reach trucks operate. The mast has to be rigid enough to resist any twisting caused by the truck's motion or any off-center loading problems. The mast should be sure it can rise and lower in a smooth way with the least consumption of power.
