In order for ports and terminals to operate smoothly, containers need to be transported quickly and safely. The Toyota Container Handlers do just that. Engineered for fast lifting cycles, reliable operation and efficient serviceability, the Toyota Container Handlers are rugged beasts that handle like dreams.


The Toyota Container Handlers are complete with excellent all-around visibility with elevated cab positions, angled overhead windows and wide view masts. The unique mast designs offers improved durability and reduced torsional stress. There isn’t a detail Toyota has missed when it comes to the new Container Handlers.


As a cherry on top of this invaluable workhorse, the new Toyota Container Handler is made entirely in the U.S.A. and the components are sourced from reputable companies like Dana, Cummins and Parker.

Four Reasons You Need a Toyota Container Handler

The Toyota Loaded Container Handler speaks for itself in the amount of productivity and efficiency it creates for customers throughout North America. But if a boost to productivity and efficiency isn’t enough for you to say ‘yes’ to a Toyota Container Handler, consider these four other reasons you should:


Though the conditions you work in might not be comfortable, the Toyota Container Handler is. Rugged applications, meet luxury. This is the new Toyota Container Handler. With everything from an elevated cab position, to a cab heater and operator fan and air ride seat, operators will remain comfortable and productive throughout long shifts.

The good news is, the Toyota Container Handler has been built to be easy to maintain and quick to repair so that on the off chance your container handler goes down, you’ll be up and running in no time.


It has been built for the inevitable conditions at ports. Moisture is not a forklift’s friend, but it’s inevitable at a shipping port near the ocean. The Toyota Container Handler has been finished with a two-part rust-inhibiting polyurethane base coat and two-part polyurethane top coat for corrosion protection and a longer life.
