Proven Performance: The Toyota Tonero Forklift with Hydrostatic Transmission

Did you know that in our range of Toyota Tonero counterbalance forklift trucks between 1.5 and 3.5 tonnes, we offer a choice of either hydrodynamic (commonly known as torque convertor) or hydrostatic transmission?

In a previous blog post, we have explained the differences between these two transmissions. Today, we’re going to give you some information about the Toyota Tonero engine powered counterbalance forklift trucks with hydrostatic transmission, its features and how it can benefit certain applications.

Our Tonero HST models provide operators with exceptionally smooth control. These trucks feature powerful engine braking and quick direction change which allows you to use these trucks on short runs with frequent changes in direction, such as loading and unloading goods from delivery vehicles.

The trucks feature pre-set driving parameters which means that an operator can change the trucks feel when accelerating, braking and steering to suit the needs of the task at hand or their own preference. Along with independent drive and lift functionality, this truck can be used for applications where very precise manoeuvring of the forks is required.

 Featuring an electronic parking brake, these trucks have the capability to perform a complete stop on ramp without rolling back, meaning that they can be used to load and unload goods whilst on an incline.

Truck safety is an integral feature of all Tonero forklift trucks thanks to the Toyota System of Active Stability (SAS). SAS is the world’s first active system for controlling forklift stability and is fitted as standard on all of our counterbalance trucks. It incorporates a series of features which help to protect the truck, operator and load whilst driving turning and lifting. More information about SAS can be found here.
