Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A., Inc.  has launched its new line of 8-Series 4-wheel AC electric lift trucks, delivering a number of ergonomics and safety features. The new 8-series 4-wheel AC electric lift-truck features ergonomic designs that include a standard ultra-comfort vinyl full suspension seat with four-way adjustability and increased forward/backward seat adjustment, anti-cinch seat belts and mini-lever. The optional joystick hydraulic controls with Ergo-Shift features a three-way adjustable armrest to enhance operator comfort and increase productivity, Toyota said. The 8-Series also features Toyota’s exclusive System of Active Stability (SAS), which is proven to help reduce the risk of accidents that occur as a result of lateral and longitudinal tip-overs, the company said. When the SAS system detects instability, its advanced sensors simultaneously signal and engage the appropriate controller. The Active Control Rear Stabilizer System and the Active Mast Function Controller System work in conjunction to add truck stability and help reduce the likelihood of a lateral overturn and help decrease the chance of spilling a load or tipping the lift truck forward or backward, enhancing operator safety.
