by Inside Logistics Online Staff

Toyota Material Handling has launched a new electric walkie stacker under the brand Tora-Max.

The new walkie stacker is meant for customers in the warehousing, manufacturing, beverage, retail, and distribution industries. The new model is available for order online now, on the MyToyota Store and at TMH dealers across North America. 

“The Tora-Max Walkie Stacker is perfect for customers who need a fast, turnkey solution for their material handling needs,” said Tony Miller, Toyota Material Handling senior vice-president of engineering, operations, and strategic planning.

“This product launch is the latest example of Toyota’s mission to provide versatile and valuable solutions for any type of customer.” 

The Tora-Max Walkie Stacker is designed to handle light-duty loads and includes pinwheel capability to easily navigate tight aisles and compact spaces. The six different mast options and adjustable base legs provide stability and allow operators to fine-tune the equipment to stack a variety of load sizes within the model’s 2,600-pound capacity.

The ergonomic hand grips, fingertip controls and directional thumb wheels sustain productivity levels while ensuring operator comfort. 

The Tora-Max Walking Stacker also includes a 24V lithium-ion battery and a built-in charger. The charger works with standard wall outlets, and regenerative braking keeps any operation running efficiently. 

Additional features available with this model include an LCD battery indicator screen, which shows battery usage and fault codes, and a PIN code access or RFID access panel to reduce the likelihood of unauthorized use.
