Toyota’s new range of 6-8 tonne forklifts

TOYOTA’S new 7-Series forklift range comes standard with the company’s System of Active Stability (SAS), which incorporates an active mast function controller and tilt levelling features.

Models in the new series of forklifts offer three-way closed loop catalytic muffler systems, double-action hand-operated park brakes, neutral start safety switches, and memory tilt steering columns. The vehicles also have low, wide-entry steps with dual operator assist grips.

Toyota says the 7-Series also benefit from low noise emissions and high visibility overhead guards.

Three models are included in the range: 7FGU60, 7FGU70 and 7FGU80 in 6,000kg, 7,000kg and 8,000kg capacities, replacing Toyota’s current 5-Series models.
