Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A., Inc. (TMHU) offers a compact 27-inch battery compartment option on its 8-Series 4-wheel AC electric lift trucks, in 4,000 and 5,000 pound load capacities. The new option supports jobs with narrow aisle and tight turning radius requirements while maintaining peak capacities at high lift heights.
The short design, accommodating either a 36-volt or 48-volt battery housed in a 27-inch compartment unit, enables the lift truck to maneuver comfortably in narrow 12-foot aisles. Users can also save on the initial battery and charger cost due to the smaller battery size used and the lower charger output requirements with this compact battery compartment option.
Without compromising travel or lift speeds, the compact option offers the performance benefits of an AC-powered system, including extended battery shift life, reduced downtime between charges and a virtually maintenance-free system for greater operator efficiency.
