Toyota Material Handling UK is releasing new models of the Traigo range of 80-volt electric counterbalanced trucks (4.0, 4.5 and 5.0 tonnes) later this year to boost heavy duty operations.
The complete range of Toyota Traigo 80 forklift trucks (2.0t to 5.0t) covers a variety of applications: from stacking in narrow aisles with the more compact models through to heavy load handling in tough working conditions with the latest higher tonnage models. This range is more productive, safer and more energy efficient than ever.
The benefits of working with the Toyota Traigo 80 have been maximised: the range offers longer operating time and longer service intervals as well as various energy management solutions. The new 4.0 to 5.0 tonnes forklifts also bring higher productivity thanks to improved driving speeds of up to 18 km/h, stronger acceleration and quicker lifting resulting in 15% more pallet movements compared to its previous models. The new range includes a 5.0 tonne model rated at 600 mm load centre – offering increased residual capacities and ideal for lifting longer loads or working with heavy attachments.
Built with the world’s unique Toyota System of Active Stability (SAS), a highly durable chassis and ergonomic operator compartment, the trucks are extremely reliable in heavy-duty operations and excel in overall visibility. Furthermore, they perform on an energy consumption level which has been improved up to 22% compared to the previous models.
Dave Rylance, Counterbalance Product Manager at Toyota Material Handling UK says "Designed with the values of productivity, reliability and energy efficiency in mind, the three newest heavy-duty models of the Toyota Traigo 80 range of electric-powered forklifts add to a highly versatile range of material handling equipment. All trucks fulfil the needs of the occasional or frequent user and are an asset in fleet operations and intensive applications."
