Galvanized Frame Helps Extend Life of Trucks in Wet Environments

IRVINE, Calif. - Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A., Inc. (TMHU), the supplier of the number one selling lift truck in North America, announced today that three models of its AC electric pallet truck line and walkie rider are now available with a Galvanized Chassis option to protect the vehicles while operating in wet environments. The models include the 8-Series AC electric walkie pallet truck (6,000 pound capacity), 8-Series end-control walkie rider (6,000-8,000 pound capacity) and 7-Series electric walkie pallet truck (4,500 pound capacity).

"The galvanized chassis is ideally suited for electric pallet trucks working in salty, high-moisture and corrosive environments where resistance to rust is vital," said Nebojsa Trajkovic, electric product planning specialist for TMHU. "This option helps increase the durability and life of these trucks in extreme conditions, which in turn saves our customers money."

The enhancement in the chassis is ideally suited for customers who move materials in and out of: cold storage facilities; chemical and salt and brine industries; or in areas where frequent wash down is required to remove contaminants. To extend the life of the pallet truck, a number of features have been integrated such as heavy duty Teflon® coated Polylube(TM) bushings that require no lubrication and add strength and stability along with a motor controller splashguard that helps deflect debris and moisture from entering the traction motor controller area. Additional enhancements over the standard design include:

o Galvanized metal frames
o Corrosion resistant stainless steel and nickel-plated linkage pins*
o Galvanized lower linkages, pull rods and connecting links
o Steer bearings easily accessible for lubrication
