Electric forklift models

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

Toyota Material Handling is launching three new electric forklift models. The launch includes a Side-Entry End Rider, a Center Rider Stacker, and an Industrial Tow Tractor. 

The Side-Entry Rider allows quick access to the operator compartment from either side.

The new electric Side-Entry End Rider, available in both 6,000 and 8,000-pound models, is for cross-warehouse transportation and order picking. It has an automatic parking brake and standard power steering.

This product offers operators a forward-facing position with a clear line of sight when picking and placing loads and has a multifunction ergonomic control handle. Best-in-class turning radius and speed reduction during turns make it easier to transport loads when cornering. The Side-Entry Rider allows quick access to the operator compartment from either side of the truck.   

The electric Center Rider Stacker has a lift capacity up to 2,500 pounds and lift height up to 72 inches.

 The new electric Center Rider Stacker is capable of performing the work of a center rider, order picker, and counterbalanced forklift all in one. It has a lift capacity up to 2,500 pounds and lift height up to 72 inches. The multifunction control handle and optional additional controls integrated into the backrest simplify operation and prioritize operator comfort. The center rider chassis allows operation in narrow aisles, on trailers.  

The electric Industrial Tow Tractor is equipped with standard electric power steering.

With an impressive towing capacity of 15,000 pounds on flat surfaces, the new electric Industrial Tow Tractor is equipped with standard electric power steering. This tugger uses an AC Drive Motor.  

Additionally, the Industrial Tow Tractor includes regenerative plugging, which not only reduces energy costs but results in increased efficiency and productivity shift after shift.

The Industrial Tow Tractor and Center Rider Stacker are compatible with Toyota Lithium-Ion Batteries. All three new Toyota electric models offer optional features, allowing customers to customize orders to meet their unique needs, such as cold storage conditioning or PIN code access for enhanced security.
