Toyota Material Handling (TMH; Columbus, IN) recently launched two AC-powered walkie pallet jacks under the brand Tora-Max – including an all-new Compact Electric Walkie Pallet Jack.
These new models add to Toyota’s industry-leading lineup of electric products and are an ideal solution for customers in the warehousing, manufacturing, beverage, retail, and distribution industries. Both models are available for order online at MyToyotaStore.com and at TMH dealers across North America.
The Compact Tora-Max Walkie Pallet Jack delivers optimal maneuverability and exceptional power with a capacity of up to 3,300 pounds. The compact design allows for effortless navigation when working in trailers and tight spaces, and comes equipped with an exchangeable lithium-ion battery that allows for fast charging and quick, easy battery replacement.
The Compact model also features a multifunction control handle with ergonomic hand grips, fingertip controls of all functions, and an LCD display that shows battery usage and important truck information such as fault codes and working hours.
The full-size Tora-Max Walkie Pallet Jack is built to carry up to 4,000 pounds, and its high ground clearance permits easy operation over transitions and uneven surfaces. This model comes equipped with an AC drive motor and a sealed, maintenance-free lead-acid battery with a built-in charger to maximize uptime.
Both models offer useful features such as electric lift and lower, turtle mode button to slow the maximum operating speed for enhanced handling control, and an optional high-load backrest.
