Christmas Presents for Turners and Growers Palmerston North

ESC_0520 copy ESC_0526 copy ABE WebsiteOver December 2014 and January 2015 T & G Palmerston North took delivery of two new Toyota 8FG18 1.8 ton LPG, two new Toyota 8FG25 2.5 ton LPG forklifts along with one new Raymond 102XM electric pallet mover from AB Equipment’s Palmerston North Branch.

All of the operators are very impressed with the additional enhancements to operator comfort and safety made by Toyota on the new models.

The new 8FG18 are replacing two Toyota 8FG18’s which have both done close to 19000 hours in only seven years and the new 8FG25 are replacing two Toyota 8FG25’s which have also clocked up over 14500 hours. All four forklifts have been working hard for all that time with no major problems, which is certainly a testament to the build quality and  reliability of Toyota forklift’s and the after sales service provided by AB Equipment.

The specification of the new Toyota’s is the same as the old Toyota’s but for two additional options that have been added. The Deluxe multifunction display dash with weight indicator and the Toyota I-Site fleet management tool. The weight indicator is great for the operator when loading trucks. I-site is a great tool for providing an understanding of the forklift utilisation, driver performance and if there has been any shock impacts to the forklift. If there has been a shock impact, I-site will automatically sent an email to alert a person onsite that the forklift has had an impact.
