Electric pneumatic forklifts

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

Toyota Material Handling is introducing two new forklifts for indoor or outdoor applications.

The new Toyota 48V and 80V Electric Pneumatic Forklifts are powered by Toyota-designed AC motors. They offer maintenance-free operation, programmable performance, and a power-select function for customization based on application and driver preference.

With a maximum capacity range from 3,000 to 4,000 lb. (48V) and 4,000 to 17,500 lb. (80V), they are designed to handle a wide range of tasks, both indoors and out.

“When it comes to selecting the right solution for every need, fleet managers will no longer be forced to choose between greater power and efficiency,” said Bill Finerty, TMH senior vice-president of sales.

“The Toyota 48V and 80Ve Electric Pneumatic Forklifts combine maximum power and efficiency, giving them the versatility to tackle the toughest jobs in any environment.”

The new Toyota Electric Pneumatic Forklifts have several productivity-enhancing innovations including electric power steering, regenerative braking and standard speed control, helping to extend battery life and reduce the frequency of battery changes.

These features are complemented with the inclusion of Toyota-designed wet disc brakes that deliver smooth, quiet, and efficient performance in both indoor and outdoor applications and require little to no maintenance or replacement during the life of the forklift. The low cost of ownership and overall value of these new models provide solutions that can positively impact customers’ bottom lines.

The simple driver interface and exceptional visibility, combined with Toyota’s System of Active Stability (SAS) technology and advanced ergonomic features lend the new Toyota Electric Pneumatic Forklifts superior handling capabilities and industry-leading operational safeguards.

Additional environmental options such as rugged steel cabins complete with windshields and wipers are available, while both models are backed by Toyota 360 Support and service guarantee.
