Ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications, the new BT Reflex O-series RRE160R reach truck from Toyota Material Handling Europe (TMHE), allows customers to cut down costs while providing maximum flexibility in operations.
November 2, 2012 (Newswire) - Toyota Material Handling Europe (TMHE)'s extensive range of advanced reach trucks is suitable for a variety of different purposes. The newest addition to this range is the BT Reflex O-series RRE160R, which is based on the BT Reflex R-series model. It incorporates the unique Transitional Lift Control (TLC) system of the latter for safe and efficient operation at height, as well as powerful AC motors, 360° steering and the advanced driver cab with 'Totalview'. These qualities ensure consistently high performance with low handling costs. The model possesses greater flexibility while maintaining the range's core values of drivability, durability, productivity and, above all, safety. While conventional reach trucks are built for smooth and level floors, the O-series' traditional wheel and gearbox configuration has been adapted to allow effective work on outdoor surfaces as well. Thanks to its 145 mm ground clearance and its large super-elastic tyres that secure grip on wet or high-temperature asphalt, the BT Reflex O-series can easily cope with rugged, loose surfaces. Its high performance in different environments makes it a reliable partner in a wide variety of industries and applications.
A range of all-weather protection options are also available with this model. This includes a fully enclosed cab with large clear-screen windows for enhanced visibility, door, heater and fan facilities to allow indoor/outdoor operations. Powerful working lights 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' expense 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 thanks to which they can load, unload and store goods, both indoors and outdoors," explains Niclas Sternerup, Director of Product Management, Toyota Material Handling Europe. The 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.
