Toyota to showcase forklifts at waste & recycling show

08 September 2014

Showing its on-going commitment to the waste and recycling sectors and after many successful events over the past few years, Toyota Material Handling UK shall be showcasing its range of quality forklifts and warehouse trucks at RWM, 16th - 18th September 2014 at NEC Birmingham, stand V80-W81.

The trucks on show at the NEC Birmingham have been chosen for their suitability to work in the waste and recycling sector, and include: the brand new Toyota Tonero, HST (Hydrostatic) engine-powered forklift truck fitted with a waste recycling clamp, the unique Toyota half refurbished forklift, showing before and after the preparation process and the electric Toyota Traigo, which offers high performance levels in both indoor and outdoor operations.

The Tonero forklift has been developed to address key industry concerns of safety and durability.  Featuring Toyota’s unique System of Active Stability (SAS), the Tonero helps operators to manoeuvre the truck confidently and safely. The chassis of the truck is designed in rugged steel for maximum durability, combined with enclosed connectors to resist water and dust, allowing the Tonero to operate in tough environments.

In response to customers’ demands relating suitability for different applications and driver preference, Toyota now offers the choice of hydrostatic transmission (HST) or hydrodynamic transmission (torque convertor) on the Tonero range up to 3.5t.

The Toyota Tonero HST is built on the same chassis as the standard Tonero (torque converter) and therefore has the same benefits including; Toyota’s unique System of Active Stability (SAS) and high reliability provided by the Toyota Production System (TPS) manufacturing process.

Tony Wallis, Sales and Marketing Director at Toyota Material Handling UK, comments: "The recycling and waste industry is an important sector for Toyota, and RWM provides the ideal platform to demonstrate our comprehensive range of products and supporting business solutions. Visitors to our stand will be able to see our ongoing commitment to deliver a diverse range of products and services designed to meet the specific demands of the waste and recycling industry.”

Wallis also comments: "In addition, Toyota prides itself on the quality, durability and reliability of our products as well as our commitment to the environment either through developing new technologies or our dedication to high finish levels on our used trucks.”
