Introducing the new 3-wheel electric forklift truck, the Traigo24, from Toyota Material Handling UK. Designed for simple, straightforward operations in confined or tight spaces, the models range from 1 to 1.5 tonnes and are available with energy-efficient Lithium-ion power and great ergonomics for increased productivity.
The new Toyota Traigo24 electric counterbalance range offers a choice of models with capacities of 1, 1.25 and 1.5 tonnes with lift heights up to 6.5 metres. This easy-to-drive compact 3-wheel truck allows for safe and efficient operations in tight spaces or congested areas. A wide range of light to mid-duty applications can be handled by this driver-friendly truck and its size and flexibility make it ideal for factories, warehouses, and shops, without compromising on safety, reliability, or comfort.
Sam Gray, Toyota Materials Handling UK’s Sales Training & Product Development Manager, comments: “There is currently a strong demand for electric CB forklifts, with many differing requirements from our customers, depending on the loads being handled, the working environment and the right energy solutions.
“Whether it’s our recent Traigo80 trucks that truly allow customers to make the shift to electric power, without compromising on performance during intensive use or our new compact Traigo24 models that make it easy for customers with occasional use in compact applications, we are able to meet every need.”
The extremely compact chassis design of this new 24-volt electric forklift makes it ideal in tight spaces and confined areas. Highly manoeuvrable, it is perfect for stacking loads in narrow aisles, even with the 1.5 tonnes model that has a new shorter chassis enhancing driveability and efficiency with the highest capacity. The Toyota Traigo24 delivers a combination of agility, ease of use and efficiency for simple, occasional handling.
Despite the Traigo24’s compact dimensions, the operator feels comfortable in the driver’s seat thanks to numerous ergonomic features that improve the working environment and productivity. The integrated display provides key operational information within easy reach, such as lift height, load weight and mast position. The redesigned lower dashboard also helps to increase efficiency by providing excellent forward visibility. On top of this, more space has been created for the operator’s feet, with a new pedal layout, and a tilting steering column with position memory.
