Toyota Material Handling’s product manager, Toyota product, Glen Ryan, said the forklift upgrades delivered benefits for the customer and operator, including improved ease of operation, ergonomics, features and safety. “All the new models have Auto Turn-speed Control, for greater safety when turning with a load and Anti-rollback control.
“The 8FBN now features Slope-Sensing Auto Power Mode which will increase the power to climb a ramp; it improves driving performance and productivity.”
“These models have option of a factory fitted blue LED light, which shines on the floor behind the machine when it’s reversing, to warn pedestrians there is a forklift present.
