Toyota Industrial Equipment has launched its new 3-wheel electric forklifts, which include 3,000 – 4,000 lb. capacity models with battery compartments ranging from 17.7 to 25.1 inches, and more than 30 improvements to improve performance, efficiency, stability and operator comfort.
Toyota’s new 3-wheel electric forklift boasts improved run times, increased travel and lift speeds. The new model comes equipped with wet disc brakes to increase overall uptime and dependability, and features a new turn speed control system to increase the forklifts lateral stability by slowing it down when an operator attempts to turn at high speeds.
Ergonomic improvements include a smaller steering wheel and foot parking brake to enhance operability, a full suspension seat adjustable for various weights for operator comfort, and an optional rear assist grip with horn to make reverse travel more comfortable, improve peripheral vision and keep the operator’s hands protected within the compartment.
