Leading the materials handling industry in safety and “green” initiatives of the future are Toyota‘s Class I, II, & III electric forklifts and pallet jacks.
The commitment to safety and reducing their environmental footprint are two huge factors in why Toyota forklifts have been rated #1 for over thirteen years.
“Toyota is committed to environmental responsibility, and it’s a role we take very seriously. Beyond pushing the bounds of product innovation, one of Toyota’s goals is to support environmentally appropriate and socially beneficial initiatives contributing to a cleaner environment.”
Brett Wood, CEO, Toyota Material Handling North America
When considering a forklift there are a number of key features that are most common in the decision making process. Safety, reliability, durability, productivity, cost, and ease of service to name a few. Toyota’s electric forklifts and pallet jacks are the leading lift trucks in these categories and most have little to ZERO emissions.
“The 8-Series signifies both Toyota’s leadership and innovation. It features an exclusive emission system that not only surpasses federal EPA emission standards, but also meets California’s more stringent emission standards. With the 8-Series, action speaks louder than words—Toyota has developed a product that not only substantially reduces the use of environmentally harmful substances in the manufacturing process, but also increases the amount of recyclable parts used.” – toyotaforklift.com
A top player in the 8-Series electric lift truck line is the Electric Walkie Pallet Jack. It’s the NEW GO TO in the materials handling industry for long loads in a horizontal application needing to get around in tight spaces and quickly. “We thought of everything with the new Electric Pallet Jack. A no-tools required, 3-piece cover combined with the standard electronic brake release and new battery pack improvements ensure that serviceability is a breeze. Increased run-time with the AC drive motor means you’ll get more work done between charges and increase your business’ productivity.”
