INDUSTRIAL TRUCKS I

INDUSTRIAL TRUCKS I FORKLIFT TEST The electric 8FBMT25 forklift from Toyota is being put to the test The industrial truck manufacturer, Toyota, has set itself quite a challenge when developing the 8FBMT25 electric forklift from the Traigo 80 range. The new forklift, which has been on the market since 2013, is designed to be more energy efficient, more productive and easier to operate than its predecessor, the 7FBMF model. Our checks will put these claims to the test.

FORKLIFT TEST I INDUSTRIAL TRUCKS Today, the main focus of testing is the 8FBMT25/Traigo 80 electric forklift from Toyota, which was launched on the market in 2013 and has a load bearing capacity of 2.5 tons. This forklift is part of the electric forklift range that has a load bearing capacity ranging from 2 to 3.5 tons and is the successor model of the 7FBMF which we tested in 2003. According to the designers, the new forklift should be more productive, costefficient, and easier to operate in comparison to its predecessor. The test forklift is the long model. This version has a maximum capacity to accommodate a 775 Ah/80 V battery (image 01). In addition to this model, Toyota also provides a “short” version (8FBMKT) with a shorter overall length that is suitable for batteries of up to 625 Ah. Robust and stable – In a nutshell, this was the first impression that the Traigo 80 (with 80 V battery) made on us. Nearly all of the body panels on this forklift, such as the cover on the battery compartment, side panels and access areas, are made of steel. Plastic parts, such as the instrument panel, are made of an impact resistant material that also gives a robust and stable impression. Visibility conditions and mast design When glancing through the overhead guard we noticed that it ensures excellent visibility for working at great heights, which is predominantly due to the slim profiles and large distance between them. With the more powerful motors, sensible arrangement of components, such as the 01 The forklift guarantees long operating periods with the 775 Ah/80 V battery on board control units and shorter cables (to noticeably reduce any loss of energy) and the new design of the mast, Toyota wants to significantly improve the performance of the Traigo 80. Additionally, the new and wider design of the mast (image 02) provides the driver with a good view of the load and fork. As the mast profiles are pushed together using a sophisticated design, this ensures that the longitudinal view, i.e. along the side of the mast, is also good. However, visibility conditions are limited by the size of the blind spot as a side shifting device is attached to the fork carrier of the mast instead of being integrated. This design further increases the blind spot as a larger fork carrier is required. 02 The wide design of the mast provides the driver with a good view of the load and fork Test consumption [kWh] 7.57 (18.60 kWh/100 pallets) 6.21 (16.00 kWh/100 pallets) 5.38 (14.0 kWh/100 pallets) 8.07 (20.40 kWh/100 pallets) Practical operating period in hours:minutes (with max. battery size incl. regeneration) 10:09 11:59 13:49 7:55 (656 Ah battery) 03 The mini levers can be used to intuitively and accurately initiate the mast functions f+h Intralogistics 1/2015 19
