New product delivers a versatile solution for tight-fitting construction and maintenance needs
COLUMBUS, Ind. – (May 15, 2019) – Toyota Material Handling USA has launched its new AICHI Vertical Mast Lift aerial work platforms to the market.
The AICHI Vertical Mast Lifts feature multi-stage post style masts providing high lift heights in a compact unit that fits through a standard doorway. They offer platform heights of 12 and 16 feet with a standard platform extension that provides an additional 15 inches for hard to reach locations. The vertical mast lifts are just 30 inches wide and 4 feet, 6 inches long, allowing for navigation in space-restricted and narrow areas where a scissor lift would be too big.
The new AICHI product comes with a zero-degree turn radius for enhanced maneuverability and standard non-marking tires. It also features a dual motor AC direct drive system that offers precise travel and industry-leading run time. This system eliminates the leaks and maintenance that can be found in the hydraulic drive systems used in other brands. AICHI Vertical Mast Lifts share this system and other parts with the AICHI scissor lift models for convenience of service and maintenance.
When it comes to features, the vertical mast lifts also offer an intuitive control handle, anti-rollback functionality, and a tilt alarm, which alerts operators to unsafe working conditions and limits platform movement until proper operation is restored. The lifts come standard with onboard diagnostics and an LCD display/hour meter, eliminating the need for special tools to diagnose any codes.
“We set out to build new work platforms for the construction trades primarily, but these lifts offer a lot more,” said Toyota Material Handling Senior Vice President Tony Miller. “This is an ideal solution for any workspace in which a ladder over 10 feet is needed.”
In addition to applications in the construction industry, the new lifts are ideal for plant and building maintenance, piping, painting and many other applications.
Toyota is taking orders now, with inventory on hand. Find more information about the new AICHI Vertical Mast Lifts at ToyotaForklift.com.
