Toyota Material Handling, USA Inc. (TMHU) has unveiled several product enhancements for its AC pallet truck line.
On the 6,000-pound-capacity pallet truck, new features include a dedicated walkie-type control handle with large, dual, directional thumb-wheels and angled hand grips for greater maneuverability and simplified operation with either hand.
TMHU’s AC pallet trucks also include new AC traction controllers, designed to improve truck operability and provide improved motor torque control and regenerative braking benefits, says the company. New electric disc-brake systems have fewer moving parts and use controlled regenerative braking to reduce wear.
On the 6,000- to 8,000-pound-capacity center-control rider pallet truck and 10,000-pound-capacity tow tractor, new 12-inch-diameter drive tires improve ride quality over the previous 10-inch-diameter drive tires.
In addition, TMHU now offers an optional steering bearing for cold storage and wet environments.
