Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A. unveils its new line of large IC pneumatic lift trucks. These vehicles are designed for demanding applications, such as lifting heavy bulk items and materials in facilities and within yards. Toyota offers six models to choose from in 22,000- to 35,000-pound capacities at a 24-inch load center.
The product line is equipped with a powerful 6.7-liter J-Series Hino diesel engine. Hino, a Toyota Group company, provides engines that are small in size and are lightweight, but perform with high output, low fuel consumption, low emissions, and low vibration. The trucks in the new line also feature a number of ergonomic and safety features to enhance operation and performance.
The two-speed transmission provides optimal performance comparable to industry standard three-speed transmissions, with the added benefit of a smoother operation due to fewer shift changes. This transmission also requires less maintenance than a comparable three-speed transmission, according to the company. In addition, it is designed to handle more torque and contains fewer parts to service.
Toyota's large IC pneumatic lift trucks offer fully oiled lift cylinders, which are extremely durable in harsh environments and help prevent the cylinders from rusting.
Wet disc brakes are standard and operate under the most severe work conditions. Toyota's wet disc brakes also help maximize operating performance by reducing maintenance costs and improving vehicle safety.
Toyota's synchronized steering option enhances operator comfort by automatically correcting misalignment between the angle of the steering wheel and turn angle of the steer tires. This system maintains a consistent steering wheel position for improved hand placement during operation.
