Toyota introduces entry-level ac-powered walkie

Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A., Inc. (TMHU) recently launched a new AC-powered walkie pallet jack under the brand Tora-Max. The 4,000-pound lift capacity walkie, built for customers in search of an entry-level walkie, provides a simple solution and solid performance. 

The new product serves small businesses and hand pallet truck users who are ready to step up to powered equipment. Tora-Max also provides a solution to manufacturers with a “no forklift policy” on the plant floor. Tora-Max walkies are available now at Toyota and Tora-Max forklift dealers across the U.S. Customer shipments are expected to begin by November 1, 2017.   “Tora-Max is the walkie for customers who want a fast, easy, turnkey solution,” said TMHU’s electric product planning specialist Martin Brenneman. “It’s the right no-frills product for the value buyer.”   The new Tora-Max walkie features include:

  • Single point watering system with tool-free cover removal for simple battery maintenance
  • On-board battery charger
  • Standard wet-cell battery pack
  • Standard turtle-mode button for pinwheel turning in a 93-inch space
  • Multi-functional control handle with ergonomic grips
