Take part in this interactive video and let Thorbjørn help you build your own electric counterbalanced truck.
Delivering high productivity with low energy consumption; Traigo48 models are highly energy-efficient, particularly with Li-ion batteries.
The Traigo48 range is designed to perform in any operation, from occasional use to multi-shift operations.
Our Traigo48 with Li-ion battery provides exceptional operating times and can rapidly be opportunity charged at any time. The range comes with Intelligent Energy Packs.
The Traigo48 is also available with lead-acid batteries. Its chassis allows for easy battery side extraction with fork pockets or a built-in roller bed.
The driver benefits from a fully adjustable seat with good support, along with an adjustable steering column. The multifunction display is easy to see and reach.
The design allows for optimal manoeuvrability in the tightest situations, to maximise your productivity. The 3-wheel chassis is particularly agile, with a very competitive aisle width dimension.
The Traigo48 range is versatile and as effective and performant working inside within racking as it is working outside in the yard or in a loading bay.
Excellent visibility of the forks, even when working at height, and of the surroundings, create a safer work space. The LED lights increase safety during night work or while working in dimly lit areas.
All Traigo48 electric trucks are equipped with Toyota’s unique System of Active Stability (SAS) ensuring excellent forklift stability by protecting the operator and load when driving, turning, and lifting. SAS provides advanced technology increasing safety and improving productivity.
Creating unique driver profiles with PIN code in the I_Site portal ensures only trained and authorised drivers have access and can operate your machines. Or you can use Smart Access cards, nicely integrated into the driver interface
Pre-operational check is a smart I_Site feature that is included in the driver interface to make sure an automated check is done by your drivers before every shift – improving reliability and safety.
This I_Site feature allows easy sending of messages to and from the truck via the new driver interface. For example, the driver can send an alert in the event of a problem, and a service technician can send a message to the driver to request a return to base.
Shock sensors on the truck provide information on collisions. Insights via I_Site fleet management on the incident and driver can help to prevent and avoid damage to your connected smart trucks and infrastructure – for a safer and more cost-efficient operation.
With our new forklift configurator you'll be able to:
Electric forklifts are more quiet than their internal combustion counterparts and they have clean and unharmful emissions. Thanks to their low maintenance requirements, they have a low total cost of ownership while providing excellent ergonomics. Electric trucks also have a low centre of gravity, allowing us to offer you a wide range of load capacities to suit light to heavy-duty applications.
Electric forklifts are very versatile and can be used in a wide variety of applications, both indoors and out. So, whether your operation deals in manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, beverage, retail, or something else; you can go electric.
Yes, Toyota electric counterbalanced trucks are made to work inside as well as outside and can be equipped with different kinds of cabins and additional protections to suit outdoor conditions. These cabins give additional protection to combat all environmental conditions: hot, cold, rainy…
Toyota electric forklifts have either lead-acid or lithium-ion batteries depending on your needs. They are also available with fuel cell energy as an alternative electric power source.
Lithium-ion batteries have a lot of advantages. They have a longer lifecycle than lead-acid batteries and are 30% more energy-efficient. With Li-ion you can opportunity charge your truck and charging is easy and fast. It’s a clean technology that does not require a separate charging room. There are 3 kind of intelligent Li-ion energy packs available on the Toyota electric counterbalanced range to fit your applications and charging habits.
A lithium-ion battery lasts up to 5,000 charges on average, while a lead-acid battery can approximately be charged 1,500 times.
The new Traigo80 2-3.5 tonnes with the smallest battery and charger can work a full 8-hour shift at an 80% utilisation rate, with just two 15-minute charging breaks during the main operating periods and an additional 45 minutes of charging during the mid-shift meal break.
Charging times and patterns depend on your battery solution and operational requirements. Lead-acid batteries should be charged when their battery level has dropped to 20%, this will extend the battery’s life expectancy to five years or more. Lithium-ion batteries are more flexible, their lifespan is not affected by charging frequency. In fact, with Li-ion, opportunity charging is encouraged to maintain your warehouse’s activities.
If you aim for an optimal balance between operational tasks and opportunity charging, a lithium-ion battery is worth the cost both from a sustainable and a financial point of view.
The initial purchase price of internal combustion trucks is lower than that of electric forklifts. The latter are, however, more cost-effective in the long run, as they have fewer moving parts and therefore don’t need much maintenance. Additionally, charging costs are also much lower than refuelling costs (gas or diesel).
