Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A. Inc. (TMHU) unveils its new 7-Series electric walkie straddle stacker lift truck with adjustable baselegs. Available in both 2,000 and 2,500-pound capacity models, these highly maneuverable lift trucks provide a cost-effective material handling solution for a variety of pedestrian truck applications, according to the manufacturer.
The new models bear a family resemblance to Toyota's 4,500-pound walkie pallet truck and share many of the same internal components. Both trucks feature the MOSFET controller and Separately Excited (SepEx) drive motor technology. The SepEx drive motor and transistor control system offer top travel speed loaded or unloaded, as well as smooth speed control.
The 7-Series trucks feature a 24-volt electrical system, regenerative braking, interlocking mast channel construction and a spring-loaded control handle that automatically applies the parking brake when the handle is released. The sophisticated, multifunction control handle provides ease of use with large dual thumb wheels and lift, lower and horn buttons that can be operated with either hand.
For comfort, handgrips are angled to fit the hand's natural contour and reduce fatigue. A high-visibility mast with a safety glass mast guard provides the operator with a clear view of the fork tips and a wide view of the work area for increased safety, load handling confidence and efficiency. Customers can set the adjustable baselegs to meet their exact specifications, with the ability to use the same lift truck for multiple aisle widths. Such versatility means that customers can reconfigure their operations and change aisle widths without major changes to their lift truck fleets.
