Toyota Material Handling (TMH), a material handling tech company, has launched a new line of electric pneumatic forklifts with 48 V and 80 V models.

According to its developers, the new line is built to withstand outdoor terrain and work in various weather conditions, making them ideal for retail applications such as lumberyards, home centers, landscaping and store support applications.

These new models, featuring six different lift capacities ranging from 3,000 lb to 7,000 lb, reportedly offer cost-effective and reliable solutions for end-users. Toyota’s System of Active Stability (SAS) springs into action when operators encounter unanticipated loads and speed conditions. Additionally, Toyota’s Operator Presence Sensing System (OPSS) and the optional Seatbelt Interlock encourage operators to maintain a properly seated position with the seatbelt buckled, or travel and load handling operations will be limited.

Built with standard AC drive and lift motors, along with significantly lower noise and vibration levels, this forklift provides a smooth operation. The regenerative braking system adjusts the speed of the truck when the operator’s foot is removed from the accelerator and conserves energy when speeds begin to slow by returning energy to the battery, increasing operational time, and improving the overall efficiency of the forklift. An optional Slope Assist feature maintains the speed of the forklift on a slope by switching the power mode of the truck.

The load-sensing power steering capabilities provide smooth handling operation for operators, while also keeping more power in the battery. In addition to the industry-leading lineup of material handling solutions, the new 48 V and 80 V electric pneumatic forklifts provide customers with performance options while maintaining energy efficiency.
