Forklift manufacturer and material handling specialist Toyota Material Handling has introduced the new BT Reflex O-series multi-function reach truck designed to work in both indoor and outdoor applications, providing increased flexibility for customers in a wide variety of applications.

The company says that the new reach truck model shares many of the advanced features of Toyota’s class-leading BT Reflex standard R-series model, including the Transitional Lift Control system for what is descibed as ‘fast but secure’ working at height, the powerful AC motors, 360 degrees steering and the advanced driver cab with the ‘Totalview’ concept.

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

The O-series truck can work on uneven or rough ground owing to a high 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 completes the package, to ensure safety and reliability.

Other features of the truck series include a range of all-weather protection options, including a fully enclosed cab with large clear-screen windows for enhanced visibility as well as door, heater and fan 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’ 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,” explained 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.
