Indoor Power Player

Toyota’s Core Electric Forklift is big on small-space productivity. This forklift can carry up to 6,500 pounds and lift as high as 23 feet. When the going gets tight, the Core Electric gets going. 


More comfort equals greater productivity and that’s the driving force behind Toyota’s Core Electric’s operator compartment — a ergonomically designed to maximize efficiency. With intuitive controls, power steering for smooth responsiveness and vibration dampening reduces operator fatigue. A memory tilt steering column and seat adjustments accommodate operators of all sizes. And a heavy-duty non-slip floor mat minimizes noise, heat, and vibration.

Core Electric Forklift Features

Toyota’s Core Electric Forklift four-way adjustable full-suspension seat means a wider seat for operators with no hip constraints for easy entry and exit. The hydrostatic (on-demand) power steering will provide a smooth, responsive operation while isolating vibration and shock. Dual operator assist grips give operators a lower, wide step for easy forklift entrance and exit from both sides. More ergonomic features of the Core Electric Forklift include:


  • 11.8″ diameter two-spoke steering wheel

  • Cowl-mounted hydraulic controls 

  • Heavy-duty, non-slip floor mat

  • Electric directional shift control

Safety features on the Core Electric Forklift include the System of Active Stability (SAS)™, which automatically detects potentially unsafe conditions and engages additional safety features for increased operator protection and reduced product and forklift damage. Other safety features include a bolt-on overhead guard, key lowering interlock, a foot-operated parking brake, and a manual return to neutral.

Toyota’s Core Electric Forklift is designed for serviceability. This includes easy access motors and controllers with no tools required. With a battery compartment hood assist and a planned maintenance indicator, operators can focus on the work at hand.
