Toyota Material Handling USA Inc. introduced its newest forklift to the THD product line. The adjustable wheelbase forklift has the capacity to lift from 15,000 to 80,000 pounds and is small enough to navigate tight spaces, the company says. It also features a stacked plate counterweight and low profile design, enabling it to go into locations that conventional forklifts cannot access, according to the company. Along with the unique horizontally adjustable wheelbase, the new heavy-duty model features rigger boom attachments for additional load support, a 2-speed hydrostatic transmission and a 7-inch color LCD multi-function touchscreen. Other features include a wheelbase extendable from 36 inches to 48 inches depending on model, a quick-change fork system, multiple display features, an onboard estimated capacity calculator, and engine fault code diagnostics and troubleshooting guides. In addition, the newest models are equipped with an optional wireless remote control for operating the forklift outside of the normal seating position while enabling the operator to precisely guide the forklift under the load, it says.
