Toyota to unveil heavy Traigo 80 counterbalance trucks

, ,

Toyota Material Handling UK is releasing 4.0, 4.5 and 5.0 tonne models of the Traigo range of 80-volt electric counterbalanced trucks later this year.

It means that the complete range of Toyota Traigo 80 forklift trucks (2.0t to 5.0t) will cover a variety of applications: from stacking in narrow aisles with the more compact models through to heavy load handling in tough working conditions with the latest higher tonnage models.

The new 4.0 to 5.0 tonnes forklifts offer higher productivity thanks to improved driving speeds of up to 18 km/h, stronger acceleration and quicker lifting resulting in 15 per cent more pallet movements compared to its previous models. The new range includes a 5.0 tonne model rated at 600 mm load centre.

Dave Rylance, Counterbalance Product Manager at Toyota Material Handling UK said: “The three newest heavy-duty models of the Toyota Traigo 80 range of electric-powered forklifts add to a highly versatile range of material handling equipment. All trucks fulfil the needs of the occasional or frequent user and are an asset in fleet operations and intensive applications.”
