One of the features included in SAS is speed reduction when cornering, available on the Traigo electric 3-wheeled forklift trucks.
This system works by reducing the risk of sideways tip over, which is the cause of 30% of serious forklift accidents. If a truck is going too fast around a corner particularly with a load, the truck can easily tip over. Speed reduction when cornering helps to avoid accidents, keeping drivers safe and equipment in excellent working condition.
Speed reduction when cornering senses when the turning speed of the truck is too high and overrides the driver’s instructions which automatically slows the truck to keep the wheels and load in the proper position.
We’ll be publishing a blog on each feature of SAS in the future. If you’d like to know more about the Toyota System of Active Stability in the meantime, you can call 0370 850 1409 or visit our SAS web page
