Yale confirms availability of Stage V engines

Yale Europe Materials handling is pleased to advise that Stage V engines will be available for ordering in some Yale trucks from the fourth quarter of 2018.

The new EU standards will come into force from 1 January 2019 for Diesel and LPG engines from 19-56 kW and above 130 kW. For engines in the 56-130 kW range the standards will take effect a year later on 1 January 2020.

Stage V calls for a further reduction in particulate matter and levels of Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) from diesel engines and for the first time also the emissions of LPG engines installed in non-road mobile machinery.

EU legislations will allow the manufacture or import of materials handling equipment with power level between 19 and 56 kW and power level over 130 kW that does not comply with Stage V until 30 June 2020. Likewise, for materials handling equipment with a power output of between 56 kW and 130 kW that does not comply with Stage V the last permissible date to manufacture or import is 30 June 2021.
