Toyota Traigo80 electric forklift standard-fitted with Continental solid tire SC20+
Continental and Toyota Material Handling have joined forces and all Traigo80 forklifts now come fitted with the Continental solid tyre SC20+ as standard.

The arrangement came into place in April, and was a response to "feedback from the market requesting more resilient and high durable tyres for the electric counterbalance range", according to Giorgio Polonio, General Manager, Toyota Material Handling Manufacturing Italy.

"This applies in particular to the Traigo80 range as it is meant for more intensive applications indoors as well as outdoors."

Julian Alexander, product line manager - material handling at Continental, claims service and maintenance costs as well as the energy consumption of forklift trucks equipped with SC20+ are lower. "The SC20+ merges the best of two worlds: not only does it offer durability and mileage, it also saves valuable energy, even on abrasive grounds," he says.

Released in January, the tyre comes with a new compound that combines high mileage with low rolling resistance. It is hard-wearing and puncture-resistant and particularly shines in highly intensive applications, both indoors as well as on uneven surfaces outdoors, such as paving slabs or cobble-stone pavements.
