Toyota 8 Series Forklift
The Toyota 8-Series 1-3 ton engine powered
counterbalance forklift is engine-powered forklift model.
Stacked with world class safety features, superior performance, outstanding productivity and user friendly ergonomics, it's simply first class.
Built Toyota tough, the Toyota 8-Series 1.8 and 2.5 ton forklifts feature: exclusive System of Active Stability technology, Operator Presence Sensing safety system, Active Mast Function / Automatic Fork Levelling controls, and Wide View Mast for unparalleled visibility.
Comfort & Ergonomics
For outstanding ergonomic design Toyota reexamined forklift operation with using the latest technology such as motion capture technology. By using many rounded lines which have been rarely seen in forklift built up, up to now Toyota has dramatically improved operator space and ergonomics.
The side profile of the forklift reveals how the front and rear pillars are well rounded making the operator compartment more spacious than in any previous forklift.
The well rounded that flow from body to pillar give a sense that the body and pillar are unified, also the entry space has been enlarged since the seventh series, making the operator easier to enter and exit.
The step has been also lowered and it has been widen this decreases the effort to enter and exit the cabin.
12 inch long dual operator assist grips have been designed to meet the needs of varying operator sizes.
Inside the operator compartment head
clearance has been widen, the roof is 25 mmm higher than in the seventh series.
Vibrations have also been reduced by a third at the steering wheel, helping to provide a comfortable environment. Vibrations when transporting loads can make those loads damaged, with the Fork vibration Damper it helps to secure the load.
Outer mast middle beam has been lowered so it does not abstract the operators view.
The steering wheel diameter has been reduced from 360mm to 300mm, the display panel has been moved and the dashboard has been lowered. These changes ensure better visibility that enables the operator to see the fork tips clearly.
The upper view has also been improved
the head guard shape has been redesigned to decrease the area that blocks the
On the power shift transmission models a foot activated parking brake comes standard, this enables the operator to engage the parking brake without changing posture.
Multifunction display, the display
provides low speed setting and maximum speed limit limitation it also provides
warnings and status information such as the maintenance hour meter and the
transmission temperature in a clear easy to read display. In addition the
operator can check the load weight by one simple click.
This helps the operator from over loading the truck.
Mini lever that has small easy to operate levers provide effortless load handling situations and travel direction selection, a fatigue arm rest also has been attached.
The new optional joystick allows to do lift and tilt operations simultaneously.
Outstanding reliability and serviceability
Reliability is what Toyota forklifts always provided even under harsh conditions. With the eight series reliability and serviceability have been further enhanced for minimizing the forklift downtime and repair costs.
Engine hood now opens at a wider angle the hood has been slimmed down to improve accessibility to the engine compartment.
Water resistance in the electrical system has been enhanced, waterproof connectors are used on almost all electrical components and ESU and relays are now housed together inside a box so that heavy rain and other harsh condition don’t effect the eight series from providing service.
The cooling system efficiency has been improved, the fan and radiator layout has been optimized.

When it senses instability, the Active Control Rear Stabilizer locks the rear axle to help reduce lateral tip-overs
Active Mast Function Controller senses and reacts to instability by limiting mast angle and speed according to the load's height and weight.
The Operator Presence Sensing (OPS) system helps to prevent accidental movement of the forklift and forks when the operator is not seated at the controls. The OPS system senses if the operator is properly seated and at the controls by means of the seat switch. When the operator is properly seated at the controls the seat switch will go "on".
If the operator is not seated at the controls the seat switch will turn "off", and the OPS system will disable the ability to lower the forks, or tilt forward or back along with all the other loading and unloading movements.
