Multifunction reach truck launched

12 December 2012

Toyota Material Handling introduces the BT Reflex O-series multi-function reach truck, which is designed to operate in indoor and outdoor applications.

The Toyota Material Handling BT Reflex O-series multi-function reach truck shares many of the features of Toyota's BT Reflex standard R-series model, including the Transitional Lift Control system for fast but secure working at height, the powerful AC motors, 360° steering and the driver cab with the 'Totalview' concept.

However, the main difference with the BT Reflex O-series can be seen at ground level, where the traditional wheel and gearbox configuration has been changed to allow effective work on outdoor surfaces.

This truck can work on uneven or rough ground due to a high ground clearance of 145mm and the treaded tyres mean secure grip on wet or loose surfaces or worn asphalt. The-gearbox is adapted to suit the revised drive-wheel configuration and three-wheel braking completes the package, to ensure safety and reliability.

A range of all-weather protection options are also available with this model. This includes a fully enclosed cab with large clear-screen windows for enhanced visibility as well as door, heater and fan to allow indoor / outdoor operations. Powerful working lights make the truck fully functional even in darker environments.

“We are constantly looking for ways to improve our products and services and drive down our customers' costs in materials handling. Our aim is to offer them the peace of mind they need to focus on their business. The BT Reflex O-series provides a flexible solution which can help customers to load, unload and store goods, both indoors and outdoors,” explains Tony Wallis, sales and marketing director for Toyota Material Handling UK.

“At the same time this new model continues to offer top-level handling performance when working as a traditional reach truck in the racking systems.”

The BT Reflex O-series (RRE160R) is available with a 1600kg capacity and lift heights up to 7.5 metres.
