Toyota's 80 v electric counterbalance forklifts reach Europe
Toyota Material Handling Europe has launched a new generation of 80 v electric counterbalance forklifts. The models are available with energy-efficient lithium-ion power and improved ergonomics for enhanced productivity.
The new Toyota Traigo80 electric counterbalance range offers a choice of models with capacities between 2 and 3.5 T and lift heights up to 6.5 m. Customers can choose between a compact chassis design for confined operations with little space, or a longer chassis with a larger battery for more continuous use. In addition, two new models with a chassis for longer load handling on 600 mm load centres have been added to support larger loads.
With its all-metal exterior and heavy-duty chassis, the Traigo80 is designed for tough environments. Customers can choose the fully enclosed cabin for weather protection, in combination with high-level protected motors to ensure durability in all weather conditions.
"Our new Toyota Traigo80 electric counterbalance truck allows customers to make the shift to improved productivity and efficiency, with no compromise on reliability or durability, even in the most intensive indoor or outdoor applications," says Jose Maria Gener, vice president sales and marketing at Toyota Material Handling Europe. "We have a clear commitment to sustainability and reducing the environmental impact of our products, so we believe this new range of electric trucks will play an important part moving forward."
The 80 v electric range is available with various energy solutions: lithium-ion, lead acid or fuel cell.
The Toyota Traigo80 will be available as a connected smart truck, allowing customers to monitor and improve their operations in terms of safety, productivity and cost efficiency. Toyota Material Handling is continuing the journey with integrated telematics that have already been standard on the warehouse range since 2018.
