Toyota has extended its range of electric trucks with the introduction of the 7FBMF-S

Toyota Industrial Equipment has extended its range of electric trucks with the introduction of the 7FBMF-S, a high-speed version of its four-wheel, electric counterbalanced forklift, which it is claimed will further enhance productivity.

Capable of a top speed of 21km/h, the truck is suited to operations where trucks have to travel over long distances. Transportation times between pick-up and deposit of goods are significantly reduced leading to increased productivity.

Toyota's Dave Moore says: "The 7FBMF-S provides increased speed with leading levels of safety. It is ideal for cross-docking operations where quick 'sortation' and movement of goods is required. It may also provide a solution for companies that use engine trucks intensively and now need an alternative to reduce noise and fuel emissions."

Efficiency can be further improved when the truck is used in conjunction with Toyota's side exit battery transfer system.

To provide an optimum mix of speed, safety and comfort the 7FBMF-S features Toyota's system of active stability (SAS), which dynamically protects the driver and the load; and the operator total care (OTC) package, which ensures the driver is as comfortable and productive as possible.

Also included is Toyota's AC Power System comprising a compact AC controller and AC motors to maximise power management and ensure the best working efficiency.
