1.0 – 2.0 Tonne 8FBE 3-Wheel Battery Forklift

From the versatility of the latest control technology to the comfort and operability delivered by our ergonomically designed operator compartment, Toyota’s new 8FBE redefines 3-wheel electric forklift quality and productivity.

Outstanding energy efficiency has been achieved with new motors and drivers adopted to improve operating time; this has resulted in the 8FBE achieving an operating time of 20% longer compared to the predecessor 7FBE forklift model* (based on 1.5 tonne 8FBE v 7FBE forklift models with same battery capacity).

*Comparison of operating times on Toyota operating cycle for 8FBE against 7FBE 1.5 tonne forklift models with same battery capacity. Assumes the forklift is operated in 55% of total working hours.

Also known as 1.0 – 2.0 Tonne 8FBE 3-Wheel Battery Forklift.

Safety :

  • Toyota SAS monitors key forklift operations, detecting and counteracting instability to help reduce the risk of tip-overs.
  • When it senses instability, the Active Control Rear Stabiliser 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.
  • Active Steering Synchroniser ensure that the angle of the steering wheel corresponds to the angle of the rear steered wheels.
  • Operator Presence Sensing interrupts power and load handling operations if the operator is not in the normal operating position.
  • Emergency Power Shut-down Button switches off all power sources if this button is pressed.

Productivity :

  • Outstanding energy efficiency has been achieved in Toyota’s 8FBE 3 wheel battery electric forklift  with new motors and drivers adopted to improve operating time; this has resulted in an operating time of 20% longer compared to the predecessor 7FBE forklift model (based on 1.5 tonne 8FBE v 7FBE forklift models with same battery capacity).
  • Accelerator release energy recovery system – when the accelerator is released this collects energy in the battery.
  • Brake regeneration energy recovery system – when the brake is activated the energy is recovered in the battery.
  • Switchback regeneration energy recovery system – during switchback the energy is recovered in the battery.
  • Power Keep Function keeps load handling and travel performance as the battery charge gets low, allowing continuing efficient operation.
  • Power Select Function provides an optimal balance of performance and operating time.
  • Our Toyota 8FBE forklifts combine the proven performance, reliability and operability of Alternating Current (AC) Power technology. Operator comfort is key with improved visibility and ease of service.

Performance :

  • High Water Resistance –  quality engineering and strategic
    positioning of motors and controllers sees 8FBE forklift achieves a high
    water resistance rating of IPX4, meaning it can work as comfortably outside as
    it does inside. This makes it one of the most versatile forklifts on the market.
  • Robust body design has seen the 8FBE 3-wheel counterbalance forklift counterweight extended to reduce the risk of damage during turns.
  • Compact yet powerful AC Motors dramatically improve both travel and load handling performance to a level that approaches that of internal combustion forklifts.
  • Digital display with multi-function hourmeter and back-lighting.
  • Energy saving long life LED lights offer low energy consumption.
  • Wide view mast with industry-leading visibility.
  • Tight turning radius and excellent gradeability.
  • Excellent travelling and lifting speeds.

Comfort & Ergonomics :

  • Ergonomically configured controls.
  • 4-way adjustable Operator Restraint Suspension seat.
  • Smooth start on slopes (anti-rollback feature).
  • Easy entry and exit on 8FBE forklift.
  • Foot activated parking brake.
  • Small diameter steering wheel.
  • Large operator assist grip.
  • Outstanding foot and head room.

Ease of Use :

  • No motor brushes or contactors on the AC Power provides for significant reductions in parts and labour costs for maintenance.
  • Outstanding tight-turn performance for effective warehouse operations.
  • Low height headguard (1,980mm) makes it possible to enter and exit containers or low-height entranceways with ease.
  • Built-in analyser and self-diagnostics for pinpoint troubleshooting.
  • No-tool floorboard with non-slip surface.
  • Easy access hydraulic level check.
