Toyota 5 series are high performance
trucks for high demanding market - the engine is powered by pneumatic tire 5-8
forklift series. This series features a safe and solid design that gives you
stability and work performance. A wide range of models let you choose the best
one suited for you and your company, but no matter which one you choose, all
the members of this series are the exemplify of the Toyota theory of evolution
- solid comfort with steady performance.
Full-Floating System for Uncompromising Comfort - The 5 series uses a full floating
system that reduces the vibration of the engine transmitted to the frame, to
ensure not only comfort for the operator but greater durability as well. Toyota’s TECHNO-COMFORT concept has come to fruition in the creation
of this 5-8 ton forklift series, a crowning achievement in Toyota’s drive to
wed high performance with unbeatable comfort.

Power shift Transmission - The advanced Self-Moving Hydrodynamic Drive (SMHD) gives smooth yet
powerful acceleration response. The SMHD features a single speed in both forward
and reverse, helping to reduce work for the operator.
The shift lever
can be operated with just the finger tips, boosting handling efficiency while
reducing operator fatigue.
Hydraulic Circuit: A
tandem oil pump equipped with a flow control valve is used. The torque
converter powers the pump, and the arrangement of the hydraulic piping helps
minimize pressure loss together with preventing excessive rises in the
temperature of the hydraulic oil, boosting the lifespan of hydraulic components.
Air Intake: To ensure a
supply of clean air for the engine, a snorkel air intake is located on the
upper porting of one of the pillars for the operator’s head guard. An 8"
cyclone air cleaner featuring outstanding air cleaning efficiency is used. A
warning light on the Integrated Monitoring Center tells the operator when the
element needs cleaning.
Instruments - All controls
and pedals are laid out for optimized ease of use. The layout of meters and
gauges in an integrated combination panel makes it simple to monitor
functioning at a glance, and the greater variety of meters used assures a
better awareness of vehicle status at all times. A multifunction display
available as option blinks and beeps to alert drivers that the truck has exceed
the preset speed.
Driving Area: A
comfortable space with plenty of room is ensured for the operator. Combined
with the floating power train and body, this makes for an area highly
conductive to operations with outstanding accuracy and safety
Steering: The small diameter
steering wheel and fully hydraulic steering system assure outstanding handling
with minimum effort. The active steering synchronizers aligns the position of
the steering wheel with the position of the wheels so that the driving knob is
always in the same position in relation to the wheels. The aim: a safe and
confortable driving position.
Pedals: Fatigue is
minimized through the use of floor-mounted pedals.
Seat: This side-wing and
seat-belt equipped Operator Restraint System (ORS) seat wraps the operator in
both safety and comfort. It offers step-less adjustment 120 mm (4.7 in.)
longitudinally and is complemented by the small-diameter steering wheel on a
tiltable column. A suspension seat is optionally available.
Engine Hood: The engine
hood is completely sealed for maximum comfort, and opens fully to a wide 85°. A
hood damper reduces the effort needed to open the hood.
Cover: A sealed design is used for the radiator cover as well, and easy
access is assured by the handy damper, which makes opening and closing the
cover a snap.
