Cat extends Li-ion options
Almere, Netherlands

Cat Lift Trucks has introduced the option of lithium-ion batteries on its EP25-
35(C)N 80V electric counterbalance forklift range.
The move is part of a scheduled program to make Li-ion technology available on specific Cat trucks, as soon as it becomes genuinely cost-effective for those products. To date, it has been applied optionally to a variety of Cat order pickers, pallet trucks, stackers and tow trucks, as well as 48 V counterbalance models.
Cat notes that the new battery solution is "especially likely to make economic and practical sense in high-energy, multi-shift, 24/7 operations".

Logistics conference looms
Berkshire, United Kingdom

Logistics UK will be holding its first virtual Fleet Engineer Conference on 21 October 2020.
Using a cutting-edge, immersive conference and networking platform, the one-day event will provide delegates with exclusive opportunities to hear about the very latest developments in commercial vehicle technology, maintenance legislation changes and best practice advice from leading names from across the sector.
Phil Lloyd, head of engineering policy at Logistics UK, says the conference will focus on how engineers can inspect and maintain vehicles and trailers effectively - embracing new and evolving technologies, but without losing sight of the basic, most essential practices.
"And, thanks to cutting-edge virtual conference technology, delegates can enjoy the event from the comfort of home or work," he adds.

Toyota upgrades joystick
Columbus, IN, United States

Toyota Material Handling has introduced the Toyota EZ Control Joystick, the company's latest innovation designed to reduce operator fatigue and optimise productivity. The new ergonomic option is being offered on all core IC, mid IC, large IC, core electric, and three-wheel electric forklifts.
Toyota says the EZ Control Joystick offers forklift operators a convenient way to operate their equipment and approach even the most difficult materials handling challenges with precision and ease. The durable ISO-style joystick is similar to those used in construction and agricultural equipment. Its multi-function capabilities enable forklift operators to minimise downtime and increase productivity by allowing them to control all necessary functions outside of braking and travel.
"Our goal at Toyota is to constantly work to develop innovative and creative solutions," says Tony Miller, TMH senior vice president of operations and engineering. "The Toyota EZ Control Joystick epitomises that goal by raising the bar in comfort and functionality for our forklifts. Our customers expect reliable, performance-enhancing solutions to their evolving challenges."
