Using technology Toyota engineers created for automotive safety systems, SAS electronically monitors and controls forklift operations to help reduce instability. Sensors monitor more than 3,000 key forklift functions. When instability is detected, the sensors signal the appropriate controller, which instantly activates the Active Control Rear Stabiliser and the Active Mast Function Controller.
In addition, SAS offers automatic fork leveling. By simply depressing a button on the mast tilt control lever during operation, an operator can work more efficiently and confidently – with less damage to loads and storage racks.
Optimal comfort and ease of operation are also realized through Toyota’s highly responsive Centralised Hydraulic Power-assist System (CHPS). This advanced system controls tilt, lift, attachment, steering and braking functions with a simple, reliable single-pump design – helping reduce diagnostic time. Our powerful tandem-gear pump and large-capacity hydraulic hosing also help ensure a constant fluid flow for smooth, quiet and responsive control, even under varying load conditions.
Toyota’s transmission includes an electric shifter on the steering column for easy transitions between forward and reverse. The engine and transmission are mounted in a full-floating design to reduce vibration and engine noise. An optional EZ Pedal allows operators to change directions without taking their hands off the wheel or hydraulic controls.
Plus, our full hydrostatic power steering provides precise control for greater maneuverability with less effort, to help keep operators productive.
