Focused on Safety
Safety is Toyota’s top priority, and the creation of the world’s first System of Active Stability (SAS)™ is a testimony to that. Derived from automotive technology, SAS is able to electronically monitor forklift operations to help reduce the risk of accidents. When the SAS system detects instability, its advanced sensors simultaneously signal and engage the appropriate controller. The Active Control Rear Stabilizer, or the Active Mast Function Controller, adds stability and helps avoid accidents or injuries.
