New range of high tonnage forklifts from Toyota

13 June 2014

Toyota Material Handling has expanded its range of Toyota Tonero engine-powered forklifts with the launch of its high tonnage trucks from 3.5 to 8.0 tonne. The Toyota Tonero range is now available from 1.5 – 8.0 tonnes.

The new range of diesel and LPG trucks are capable of handling loads from 3.5 up to 8.0 tonnes and are ideal for intense and demanding applications. Robust and extremely reliable, the Toyota Tonero forklift range benefits from strong features including industrial Toyota engines, unmatched stability and outstanding all-round visibility.

The new range comes with two new industrial engines that have been developed in-house to make the Tonero trucks deliver high-quality performance, reliability and efficiency. The Toyota 1KD (55 kW) engine with common rail fuel injection offers high acceleration, drive and lifting speeds. Furthermore, it achieves an emission level significantly below the stage IIIB regulation requirements without the need of a diesel particulate filter. The compact LPG/gasoline Toyota 1FS (63 kW) engine comes with electronic fuel injection and excels at optimum truck performance and fuel efficiency.

The new 3.5 – 8.0 tonne range also features a variable displacement pump and load sensing power steering for improved energy and fuel efficiency.

The truck’s unmatched stability is achieved by the unique Toyota System of Active Stability (SAS) and the low centre of gravity design. Together, they protect both operator and load when driving, turning and lifting and contribute to increased safety and performance.

The outstanding all-round visibility gives the operator a 360° wide view for when handling loads at ground level or at height. This minimises the risk of accidents, helping to maintain high safety standards.

Dave Rylance, Counterbalance Product Manager at Toyota Material Handling UK says "Our new Toyota Tonero high tonnage trucks have been designed to deliver exceptional efficiency and performance. Perfect for intense applications, they can be trusted to handle heavy loads rapidly, safely and productively”.
