Toyota’s breakthrough reach truck has made its Australian debut at the Materials Handling and Distribution Exhibition in Sydney’s Darling Harbour Exhibition Centre.
The stand-up model Toyota 7FBR was one of the highlights of Toyota’s “Australia’s No.1 Selling Forklift Brand” display.

Toyota’s 7FBR range of 1.0 to 1.8 tonne capacity models is the first stand-up reach truck range in the world with stable suspension control.

Toyota uniquely offers stable suspension control (also known as Toyota’s System of Active Stability - SAS) on all its 7-Series forklifts.

Features of the Toyota 7FBR range also include traction control, all-wheel braking, electronic brake force distribution to allow for fore/aft load distribution, AC control and the option of a multi-function lever to control all movement of the forks.

Toyota’s exhibit at MHD 2001 also featured the company’s safety award winning swing-down LPG-bottle bracket, fitted to a 2.5 tonne payload 7FG25 forklift.

Toyota's swing down LPG bottle bracket is now available as a Toyota Genuine accessory. It was previously available only as a fitment on a new Toyota forklift.

The Toyota LPG-bottle bracket was last year named “Best Occupational Health and Safety Solution to a Workplace Problem” in the National Occupational Health and Safety Commission awards.

Toyota developed the swing-down bracket for its breakthrough 7-Series forklift trucks to provide for easier bottle changing.

Toyota is Australia’s top-selling forklift brand. It has led sales in the Australian market every year since 1987.

A 7FB25 battery electric forklift and a five-tonne capacity 7FDA50 forklift were also on display at the Materials Handling and Distribution Exhibition.

In addition to the forklifts and reach trucks, Toyota also displayed two “Huski” skid-steer loaders and two models from its extensive commercial vehicle range - a new Dyna II 5500 truck and a HiAce van.
