National family-owned storage solution, warehousing and materials handling company Unirack has taken on one of these new machines, the GP25UX, for use at its warehouse in O'Connor, in Perth's southern suburbs, making it one of the first companies in the country to use one.

The new Yale GP25UX internal combustion counterbalance pneumatic tyre forklift with 2,500kg capacity was delivered by authorised Yale dealer Adaptalift Group, which will also be providing ongoing service, maintenance and spare parts.

"We were in the market for a new forklift, with the business expanding, and we’d heard positive reviews for Yale, including from our immediate business neighbour," Unirack managing director Rudy Proctor says.

"The experience we had with Adaptalift was outstanding. Instead of selling the first forklift they could think of, they took the time to come out to our warehouse, assess our needs, and provide a recommendation that best suited our unique operations. It was a first-class approach."

Unirack plans to use the forklift for a range of loading, unloading and order picking tasks in its 2,000 square metre facility.

"The other major factor in our decision to buy this forklift was the local back-up. This is an investment we plan to keep for many years, and we needed the local service and spare parts that Adaptalift can provide us with," Proctor explained.

"Of course, the Yale has all the safety features anyone could need in a forklift, which gives me peace of mind when it comes to Standards compliance and the safety of our employees."

Adaptalift WA major accounts manager Jube Shuttleworth says Unirack is known locally for its solutions-based approach and attentive customer service.

"It was great to be able to find the right forklift for their needs, and I’m delighted that they are seeing it as a cost-effective long-term investment," Shuttleworth says.

Serviceability is key to the new series, says Yale, with simple components and specifications to allow for service to be carried out swiftly – and ease of operation with an ergonomically designed operator compartment and familiar automotive layout.

Features include a 3.5 inch (8.9cm) LCD Yale special display, dual suspension system, small diameter steering wheel with adjustable steering column, high strength overhead guard, muffler and engine protective system, and exchangeable components across models.
