Nothing can be more challenging than moving and lifting wide loads in narrow aisles. A forklift driver operating a standard forklift will undoubtedly need to make a lot of small, calculated moves to navigate around without damaging the load or hitting the warehouse racks – or both. And it will probably take a lot more time than you’d like.    

The obvious solution is to widen the aisles to maintain productivity and efficiency. But what if you don’t have the space?   

Toyota designed two new electric forklifts to solve the specific challenge of moving and lifting wide, bulky loads in narrow aisles.   

Toyota’s New Multidirectional Reach Truck  

Toyota’s new Multidirectional Reach Truck features articulating load wheels for horizontal travel. It can travel parallel and perpendicular to racking to save time and space. It’s ideal for moving materials such as lumber, pipe, carpet, and other building supplies.  

Here are some of the highlights and features of Toyota’s new Multidirectional Reach Truck:   

  • Offers improved storage density and operational efficiency for customers looking to optimize their warehouse space  
  • Suited for pallet-less load handling, long load handling, and specialty racking  
  • Handles loads up to 22 feet wide
  • Lifts to 4,500 lbs.
