Toyota Material Handling (TMH) has introduced the Toyota EZ Control Joystick, which is designed to reduce operator fatigue and optimize productivity. This ergonomic option is available on all Core IC, Mid IC, Large IC, Core Electric, and 3-Wheel Electric forklifts.
This durable ISO-style joystick is similar to those used in construction and agricultural equipment. Its multi-function capabilities enable forklift operators to minimize downtime and increase productivity by allowing them to control all necessary functions outside of braking and travel.
Toyota EZ Control Joystick functions include:
Travel Direction Switch (option available for steering column-mounted directional switch)
Lift and Lower Forks
Forward and Backward Tilt
Auxiliary Control 1 (Ex. Side Shift)
Auxiliary Control 2 (Ex. Fork Positioner)
Auto Fork Leveling
Horn Button (on back)
The ergonomic design of the new Toyota EZ Control Joystick is built with an intuitive axis-based pivot and strategic button placement. Forklift operators can make adjustments to optimize comfort to fit their preferences using built-in controls on the side of the armrest, and can use two functions at once, such as lift and tilt.
The new EZ Control Joystick also offers forklift operators easy access to built-in storage for frequently used items such as pens, tape, and small tools. Two USB charging ports are integrated into the EZ Control Joystick to provide operators a convenient option to power and stow their portable electronic devices.
