Toyota Material Handling Europe (TMHE) has introduced a mobile elevating work platform that it says increases flexibility in forklift operations.
The operator has more freedom and control in operations as the platform offers the possibility to lift and lower, and to drive directly from the elevating cage. This allows for fast and efficient inventory and maintenance performed by one person. Combined with the BT Reflex R-series reach truck, it replaces the need for additional scissor-lifts.
The work platform is available with the BT RRE160 and the BT RRE200 models.
