GREENVILLE, NC—The Chicago Athenaeum has recognized the Yale MR14-25 moving mast reach truck by naming it a GOOD DESIGN award winner in the industrial category.

The MR14-25 offers maneuverability and stability to enable faster put away and retrieval times, the company said. The heavy-duty mast provides a lifting height of 41 feet at speeds up to 143 feet per minute, helping operations maximize the use of vertical warehouse storage. And the industry’s first premium touch-screen display offers operators visibility into operational status and enables them to choose between 180- and 360-degree steering. The moving mast reach truck is also designed for simpler serviceability, with longer service intervals to help reduce downtime.

The industry’s first “Get Home” action can be activated even after all other functions have come to rest, enabling the operator to drive the truck to an appropriate service location. For cold storage applications, the MR14-25 can withstand temperatures as low as 22 degrees Fahrenheit below zero and offers an optional fully insulated cabin.

The GOOD DESIGN Awards are presented by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in cooperation with the European Center for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies to honour the best talent in design and manufacturing worldwide. This win marks the third consecutive triumph for Yale. The winners include Google LLC, Nike, Inc., Ferrari S.p.A., Fitbit, Inc. and John Deere Construction & Forestry.
