Powered pallet trucks get an innovative new design
16 October 2020
WITH A long pedigree in providing pallet handling solutions, Toyota's BT Levio powered pallet truck family extends from market leading hand pallet trucks through to a comprehensive range of powered pallet trucks in a wide range of capacities.
The most recent addition to the range is the compact BT Levio LWI160 powered pallet truck featuring a modular Lithium-Ion design. An example of Toyota’s core philosophy of continuous improvement (kaizen) in practice, Toyota Material Handling has been thinking outside of the box to optimise the BT Levio Li-Ion LWI160, and came up with what it says is a revolutionary and innovative new design of the powered pallet truck.
The LWI160 is the first ever low-lifter in the industry to have gone through a complete redesign approach. Rethinking and optimising the entire layout of the truck by removing the traditional battery tank allowing an optimal fit of all components.
Thanks to its built-in Lithium-Ion battery and telematics as standard, the high-quality, compact design has been rewarded with the 2020 iF design award, an important recognition from the iF jury for Toyota’s first design with unique Lithium-Ion approach.
