    What type of tool are you searching for to make your warehouse life a little easier? We offer a wide variety of Toyota equipment for various tasks:

    • Cushion Tire Lift Trucks: These trucks are ideal for general warehousing, manufacturing, and loading docks. They can be used indoors or outdoors, but require a hard surface.
    • Pneumatic Tire Lift Trucks: This type of truck is perfect for lumber or pipe yards plus heavy manufacturing. They can be used outdoors across rough surfaces like gravel or dirt.
    • Rider Electric Forklifts: This forklift is for clean environments like food processing or cold storage. They are available as a sit-down or stand-up truck and are for indoor use with smooth floors.
    • Pallet Trucks/Walkie Stackers: This truck is great for warehousing, delivery trucks, confined areas, and dock use.
    • Reach Trucks: The reach truck offers narrow-aisle applications and high lift heights. If you are in a general warehouse or one with a narrow-aisle, this truck is perfect for you.
    • Order Pickers & Very Narrow Aisle: This truck is perfect for “Order picking.” Simply hop on, head to the space within the narrow aisle that your item is, go back, and jump back off. Some people in the industry call this the “Man up” truck.
    • Hand Pallet Trucks: The pallet truck is a very popular piece of equipment because it is functional through all modes of pallet movement. These are great light duty machines with manual lift and push for short distances.
