The Core Electric Turret Forklift, Toyota Material Handling’s latest innovation designed to help customers maximize their storage capacity and efficiency, earns industry recognition for customer value.
COLUMBUS, Ind. (August 11, 2021) — The Core Electric Turret Forklift by Toyota Material Handling (TMH) has been recognized for its innovation and high customer value by Rental, a nationally recognized magazine serving rental equipment professionals. The publication named Toyota Material Handling’s Core Electric Turret Forklift as a recipient of a Rental 2021 Editor’s Choice Award.
The 2021 Rental Editor’s Choice Awards represent the equipment rental industry’s best products gaining interest from end-users and rental professionals alike. Recipients like Toyota’s Turret Forklift were chosen by Rental’s editorial team based on factors including innovation, utility for the rental market, as well as audience engagement, including most clicks, page views and inquiries on ForConstructionPros.com/Rental.
“We are honored to be recognized with this award, and we believe it is an affirmation of our mission to provide industry-leading innovation and high-quality solutions that help all of our customers meet their most pressing challenges,” said Jeff Rufener, TMH President & CEO.
Toyota’s Electric Turret Forklift is an innovative narrow-aisle solution for customers who are looking for ways to enhance their productivity and space utilization. It has a lift capacity of up to 2,500 pounds and a maximum reach of nearly 20 feet. Designed for versatile and efficient dock-to-stock operation, Toyota’s Turret Forklift combines high-capacity strength with narrow-aisle precision and agility.
The swinging fork face allows loads to be handled to the left, right and center of the forklift so that product can be stacked in racking without the need to turn. With the ability to maneuver in aisles as narrow as seven feet and the capability of stacking goods at a 90-degree angle, operators can manage heavy loads in the most condensed warehouse and storage facilities. The Tri-lateral head attachment provides smooth and precise operation during travel and load handling, thanks to built-in components that reduce impact at the end of the swing stop.
“At Toyota, we’re always looking for ways to help customers optimize their operations for enhanced productivity and efficient space utilization. The Electric Turret Forklift is designed to do just that,” said Tony Miller, TMH Senior Vice President of Operations and Engineering. “This innovative product allows customers to reduce their aisle widths, add more racks, and drastically increase the storage capacity and overall volume of their operations.”
Alexis Sheprak, Rental’s editor, says this year’s winning products represent a significant step forward in rental industry progress after a tough 2020, showcasing top-notch innovation, reliability, and quality from some of the industry’s leading manufacturers.
“These products not only exhibit cutting-edge features but also offer innovative solutions to some of today’s most common problems, garnering interest from rental professionals on ForConstructionPros.com,” Sheprak said.
Toyota’s Core Electric Turret Forklift utilizes a unique mast and turret attachment combination designed by Cascade Corporation. Customers will benefit from the thoughtful design, which allows for fast and efficient service to help reduce downtime and lower the overall cost of ownership.
