New fork lifts from Toyota

May 22, 2014
Toyota Material Handling has expanded its range of Toyota Tonero engine-powered fork lifts with the launch of its high tonnage trucks from 3.5 to 8.0 tonne.

In a separate announcement Toyota has also introduced hydrostatic transmission (HST) system as an option on its 2.0 to 2.5 tonne trucks making them ideal for moving companies.

The hydrostatic option

In an interview with The Mover, Toyota explained that hydrostatic transmission is ideal for applications where trucks are used on short, intermittent operations such as handling pallets or loading vehicles or containers.  Hydrostatic transmission is also very useful when loading on ramps as it provides added control.  The trucks are also available with torque converted transmission which are more appropriate for long run operations where fuel consumption is a critical feature.

Heavy lifting

The heavy lifting trucks are ideal for the handling of ISO containers. Toyota said that the trucks benefit from industrial-strength Toyota engines, unmatched stability and all-round visibility to minimise the risk of accidents and help maintain safety standards.
