All weather indoor/outdoor reach truck

Slough, UK:  Toyota has launched the BT Reflex O-series multi-function reach truck designed for indoor and outdoor applications.

The new reach truck model shares many of the advanced features of Toyota’s BT Reflex standard R-series model, including the unique Transitional Lift Control system for fast but secure working at height, AC motors, 360° steering and the advanced driver cab with the ‘Totalview’ concept.

The main difference with the BT Reflex O-series is at ground level where the traditional wheel and gearbox configuration has been changed to allow effective work on outdoor surfaces.

This truck can work on uneven or rough ground with ground clearance of 145mm and the treaded super-elastic tyres mean secure grip on wet or loose surfaces or worn asphalt. The heavy-duty gearbox is adapted to suit the revised drive-wheel configuration and three-wheel braking provides safety and reliability.

A range of all-weather protection options are also available with this model. This includes a fully enclosed cab, heater and fan to allow indoor/outdoor operations. Llights make the truck fully functional even in darker environments.

“We are constantly looking for ways to improve our products and services and drive down our customers’ costs in materials handling. Our aim is to offer them the peace of mind they need to focus on their business. The BT Reflex O-series provides a flexible solution which can help customers to load, unload and store goods, both indoors and outdoors” explains Tony Wallis, sales and marketing director for Toyota Material Handling UK.

“At the same time this new model continues to offer top-level handling performance when working as a traditional reach truck in the racking systems.”

The BT Reflex O-series (RRE160R) is available with a 1600kg capacity and lift heights up to 7.5 metres.
