Specialist brick forks, a speed controller and on-board weighing system are just three features of the new Builders' Merchants Special being exhibited by TOYOTA Industrial Equipment at GLEE.
Specially tailored to meet the needs of builder's merchants, the TOYOTA forklift is the first machine specially developed for the sector.
This Generation 7 diesel counterbalanced forklift delivers leading levels of productivity and is packaged with seven appealing options:
A travel speed controller for greater safety for the operator and for those working in the vicinity of the forklift
A white noise reverse alarm to reduce noise pollution in residential areas
Pin code driver access to prevent unauthorised use of trucks
Auto engine cut off to reduce engine wear and fuel consumption
Specialist brick forks to reduce brick pack damage
An on-board weighing system to prevent over filling of sand/aggregate bags and overloading of delivery vehicles
Tilt cylinders boots to prevent tilt ram damage and reduce maintenance costs
Builders' merchants also benefit from TOYOTA's unique System of Active Stability (SAS), the world's first active safety system for forklifts that protects operators and customers on site. SAS has a number of innovative functions which dramatically improve safety and comfort, including automatic fork levelling for safer stacking of brick and block packs.
Andrew Morley National Sales Manager at TOYOTA Industrial Equipment comments: “Toyota has developed a very clear understanding of the nature of the builder's merchants environment and as a result has introduced the 'Builder's Merchants Special', which will provide operators with a forklift that is truly fit for purpose.”
