Overview of Toyota Forklift Truck Options
Written by Steve Thompson
There are many different Toyota forklift truck models available; over the years, they have become a trusted name in the manufacturing and design of lift trucks. Before making a purchase, however, it is a good idea to become familiar with the different options available and how they can benefit your business – as well as to consider forklifts from several manufacturers.
Toyota forklift features
A Toyota forklift truck comes with several mechanical and safety features to maximize efficiency. The 8-series cushion tire Toyota forklifts, for example, include the system of active stability (SAS) feature, which helps keep the machinery stable regardless of the job it performs.
Many Toyota forklift trucks come with two-year warranties or better, power-coat paint finishes, and return-to-neutral functionality. They are typically light, and many models come with cushion tires. They have both stand-up and sit-down riders depending on your needs.
Types of trucks available
When choosing a Toyota forklift truck, consider the different types available. Pallet trucks, reach trucks and stackers are all part of the line; they each perform different functions for your business. You can also choose between electric models and pneumatic options.
Toyota lifts also come in a wide variety of capacities. Weight capacities range from 3,000 to more than 50,000 pounds. It is a good idea to take inventory of the weights you need to move before you make a purchase. It’s generally good practice to buy a machine with a slightly higher lift capacity than what you currently need – but buying too much extra capacity will cost you extra up front and in ongoing operating costs, so don’t overdo it.
It is important to note that within the different series, there are separate categories of Toyota forklifts that should be considered. Counterbalanced stackers, for example, might be more convenient for heavier weights, while reach stackers are often more suitable for deep, narrow aisles.
Driver safety and comfort
The Toyota forklift truck options on the market today come with advanced driver safety and comfort features that can make work easier and less dangerous. The return-to-neutral functionality, for example, ensures that the vehicle will not become accidentally operational if the driver steps off for a moment or directs his attention elsewhere.
The sit-down lift trucks have ergonomic seats that are contoured for better comfort, and most have armrests for workers who operate their trucks for extended periods of time. Visibility is heightened through clear vision masts that provide 360-degree views of the area.
Walkie lift trucks manufactured by Toyota are also designed for comfort, with adjustable controls and better operator efficiency. Compare different models to see which ones are most convenient and affordable for your business.
No matter what you’re looking for in a lift, chances are there’s a Toyota truck forklift model that can meet your needs. That said, it’s always smart to shop multiple brands of lifts to find the best deal on a truck that can get the job done.
