The new Toyota 48V and 80V Electric Pneumatic Forklifts are powered by Toyota-designed AC motors and built with operators in mind to elevate operational efficiency and productivity. These forklifts offer maintenance-free operation, programmable performance, and a power-select function for customization based on application and driver preference. With a maximum capacity range from 3,000 to 4,000 lbs (48V) and 4,000 to 17,500 lbs (80V), they are designed to handle a wide range of tasks.

“When it comes to selecting the right solution for every need, fleet managers will no longer be forced to choose between greater power and efficiency,” said Bill Finerty, TMH senior vice-president of sales. “The Toyota 48V and 80Ve Electric Pneumatic Forklifts combine maximum power and efficiency, giving them the versatility to tackle the toughest jobs in any environment.”

The forklifts feature several innovations including electric power steering, regenerative braking and standard speed control, helping to extend battery life and reduce the frequency of battery changes.

These premier features are complemented with the inclusion of wet disc brakes that deliver smooth, quiet, and efficient performance in both indoor and outdoor applications and require little to no maintenance or replacement during the life of the forklift.

The forklifts offer simple driver interface and visibility, combined with Toyota’s proprietary System of Active Stability (SAS) technology and advanced ergonomic features. Other environmental options such as rugged steel cabins with windshields and wipers are available.
