Toyota launches range of forklifts
Toyota Material Handling Australia is set to launch a suite of four-wheel counter-balance battery electric forklifts, the 8FBN range.
There are five models in the collection, ranging from 1.5 to 3t rated capacity at 500mm load centres, with a choice of masts, hydraulic controls and attachments.
A number of accessories are available, as well as a cold storage pack for operating at -45° Celsius and a corrosion-protection pack.
TMHA's national product manager for electric forklifts, Jim Lobow, said the new 8FBN forklift range offered several improvements over the old range.
“The series has a new AC power system, more efficient motors and controllers, improved layout of equipment and an all-new pedal-stroke detection regenerative brake system.
“The biggest single advance over the equivalent 7FB series could well be the automatic turn-speed control. The new system combines lift-height and load-weight-sensing along with turn-speed control automatically limiting the forklift's speed when turning, according to the state of the vehicle.”
