Toyota Industrial Equipment introduced a major expansion to its well-received high-capacity forklift lineup at a dealer conference last month.

Toyota first introduced its Toyota Heavy Duty (THD) high-capacity forklift product line last year with capacities of up 72,000 lb. (32,658 kg) and has expanded the lineup with capacities of up to 125,000 lb. (56,700 kg).

The latest Toyota heavy-duty model expansion rounds out a line of high-capacity forklifts that have been popular with industrial customers from lumber yards to large ports.

"Our heavy industrial customers said they needed work-horse forklift solutions and we listened," says Mark Faiman, IC product manager for Toyota Material Handling, USA. "The new addition of Toyota THD high-capacity lift trucks can handle loads from 80,000 lb. up to 125,000 lb. and are designed to give steel, pipe, precast concrete, and other industrial yard customers unprecedented flexibility in materials handling."

The new models come standard with visibility-enhancing cabs and a host of operator productivity-enhancing features, including armrest-mounted controls with a multi-function LCD information display, and also offer a wide range of customisation possibilities.

Toyota's THD high-capacity forklifts are powered by Cummins engines and are manufactured in the USA.

First customer shipments are projected by the end of 2016.
