Toyota has launched the Traigo80 – an 80-volt electric forklift with load capacities ranging from 2.0 tonnes up to 3.5 tonnes.
Six models will initially be available including the 2.0 tonne, 2.5 tonne compact, 2.5 tonne, 3.0 tonne compact, 3.0 tonne and 3.5 tonne.
Each model features the Toyota AC electric drive-and-lift technology and is suitable for long, intensive operations.
The AC motors coupled with the latest generation of controllers make it possible to increase vertical and horizontal speed by up to 20 per cent.
The truck uses the Toyota SAS (system of active stability) to enhance stability and safety.
This is an exclusive technology designed to actively enhance forklift stability and safety. Toyota has also focused on maximising visibility for the driver.
The new forklift range has a compact mast design, new hydraulic layout and improved controllers, resulting in up to 20 per cent more energy efficiency than its predecessor – enabling a 20 per cent increase in operational time between battery charge.
The trucks offer a range of battery capacities up to 775Ah. For applications that are working extensive shift patterns, the new trucks are designed to offer different battery exchange methods to suit all customer preferences in multi-shift operations, and is available for application either from above or from the side of the truck.
