Toyota launches 3-wheeler

Toyota Industrial Equipment has launched a 24 volt, 3-wheel electric forklift truck, designed for tight spaces.

The Toyota Traigo is available in 1.0, 1.3 and 1.5 tonne lifting capacities and features some unique technologies such as the System of Active Stability (SAS) and AC2 Power System. The Traigo also includes Toyota’s Operator Total Care package.

For safety, SAS actively protects the driver and also reduces the risk of damaged goods. SAS features also include: automatic fork-levelling and active mast control, making operation of the machine simple. It also reduces the forward tilt angle when lifting heavy loads high, thus aiding safe operation.

The Traigo improves reliability and maintenance costs through the AC2 Power System, which combines a compact AC motor and sophisticated controller to offer powerful precise control, with more compact and less complex components.

The system provides greater acceleration and more lifting performance compared to conventional trucks.

A 3-mode power select function offers standard, power and high power modes for material handling speeds. Standard power maximises the operating time from the battery and high power mode gives maximum productivity compared to standard mode, but reduces overall operating time on one battery.
