Electric forktrucks for long loads and furniture

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

Toyota Material Handling (TMH) is adding two new electric products to the company’s lineup, an all-new Multidirectional Reach Truck and Furniture Order Picker.

The Toyota Multidirectional Reach Truck is an alternative to traditional material handling – specially designed to handle wide, bulky loads – while offering the flexibility to maneuver in narrow aisles thanks to articulating load wheels that allow for horizontal travel.

With the capability to handle loads up to 22 feet wide and a capacity of up to 4,500 lbs., the Multidirectional Reach Truck offers improved storage density and operational efficiency.

This reach truck is best suited for pallet-less load handling, long load handling and specialty racking, making it ideal for moving materials such as lumber, pipe, carpet and other building supplies.

Furniture Order Picker

The new Toyota Furniture Order Picker is a solution for handling bulky loads, including items such as couches, dining room tables and steel panels. It’s capable of lifting large items as high as 366 inches on carts or furniture platforms with ease, speed and stability.

The Furniture Order Picker – available in 24v and 36v models – has a lift capacity of 1,600 lbs. and is available with custom options.

Notable features, including a glance and go display, tight turn radius and upgraded lift/lower speeds, make the new Furniture Order Picker an ideal solution for furniture warehouses and distribution centers.

“Like our customers, Toyota is not one-dimensional. We are dynamic and responsive to the challenges of our business and our industry, and we understand the importance of versatility in the solutions we use to stay ahead,” said Bill Finerty, TMH senior vice-president of sales.

“Our new Toyota Multidirectional Reach Truck and Furniture Order Picker reflect that appreciation for versatility and are manufactured to help customers rise to the occasion at a time when consumers are demanding greater efficiency and productivity from the supply chain than ever before.”

The Toyota Multidirectional Reach Truck and Furniture Order Picker are both powered by AC motors,  and are backed by Toyota 360 Support.
