These new models are for customers in the warehousing, manufacturing, beverage, retail, and distribution industries. Both models are available for order online and at TMH dealers across North America. 

“These new ergonomic walkies are perfect for customers who need a fast, turnkey solution for their material handling needs,” said TMH product Planning Manager Jena-Christine Lawrence. “This product launch is the latest example of Toyota’s mission to provide versatile and valuable solutions for any type of customer.”

The Compact Tora-Max Walkie Pallet Jack delivers optimal maneuverability and exceptional power with a capacity of up to 3,300 pounds. The compact design allows for working in trailers and tight spaces, and it comes equipped with an exchangeable lithium-ion battery that allows for fast charging and easy battery replacement. 

The Compact model also features a multifunction control handle with ergonomic hand grips, fingertip controls of all functions, and an LCD display that shows battery usage and information such as fault codes and working hours. 

“The vertical driving position allows operators to maneuver in confined areas without fully extending the control handle,” Lawrence said. “The control handle was designed for comfort and intuitive use so operators can quickly learn to use the equipment.” 

The full-size Tora-Max Walkie Pallet Jack is built to carry up to 4,000 pounds, and its high ground clearance permits easy operation over transitions and uneven surfaces. This model comes with an AC drive motor and a sealed, maintenance-free lead-acid battery with a built-in charger. 

Both models offer electric lift and lower, turtle mode button to slow the maximum operating speed, and an optional high-load backrest.
