Think Inside the Box

Toyota’s Box Car Special is a special edition to the Large IC Cushion Forklift. The Box Car Special incorporates a compact, vertically extended counterweight to facilitate working in railcars and other tight quarters without sacrificing lifting power. It’s a design that opens up new opportunities in racking, space planning, and shipping. So you can think big and small all at the same time.

Box Car Special Forklift Features

Toyota’s Box Car Special Forklift features Toyota’s System of Active Stability (SAS)™, which automatically detects potentially unsafe conditions and engages additional safety features for increased operator protection and reduced product and forklift damage. The force-cooled wet discs brakes found on the Box Car Special will reduce maintenance costs and downtime with an expected lifespan of 10 years/20,000 hours*. This forklift comes with a tighter turn radius, an economy (ECO) mode option, and an active mast function controller, all upping productivity and control when in operation.

Toyota’s Box Car Special Forklift comes with improved ergonomics, which include the load-sensing power steering, 11.8” steering wheel, dash-integrated amenity tray, and an oversized cup hold. This forklift also has a dash-mounted instrument display, low, wide entry steps, and a standard 4-way adjustable vinyl full-suspension seat that is wider with no hip restraints for easier entry/exit than competitors’ seats. The seat also provides weight-adjustable for greater operator comfort.
