Toyota Forklifts has unveiled the latest addition to its range of electric forklifts, boasting a series of new features to enhance safety and productivity.

The Traigo80 completes Toyota’s family of electric counterbalance forklifts, which include their 24v, 48v and HT ranges.

Offering a sneak peak of the new vehicle at last week’s IMHX, the Traigo80 is described as ‘robust, versatile and compact’, with capacities from 2.0 - 3.5 tonnes, including compact models. Equipped with the powerful and lean Toyota AC electric drive-and-lift technology and Toyota’s unique System of Active Stability (SAS) the truck is designed to be a reliable business asset and help customers’ drive down material handling costs.

According to Toyota, the entire Traigo family of trucks are all designed and built around the core values of productivity, safety, durability and driver comfort, to provide customers with trucks that add value to their business. This range provides solutions for any application and use, whether occasional or high intensity. Working indoors and outdoors, a wide range of cabins are available for improving comfort in all-weather operations.

In line with Toyota’s well-known principle of continuous improvement (Kaizen), the company claims its new Traigo80 takes leaps forward in many key areas; providing ‘improved productivity for users, maximum speed – paired with better energy efficiency – and superb all-around visibility’.  In addition, drivers can take advantage of clearer through-mast visibility in operations with a choice of masts to suit different application needs.
