Reasons to choose the Toyota hand pallet truck

Our BT Lifter hand pallet trucks have been setting standards in strength and performance for over 60 years. Today our manual forklift range maintains these values. Manufactured at our dedicated production facility in Sweden, these high-quality trucks are proven to be the most durable – lasting up to five times as long as other trucks in work-cycle tests.
