Toyota Material Handling Europe introduces new optimised Tonero diesel engine with 8% improved fuel efficiency and lower CO?
Toyota Material Handling Europe (TMHE) announces the Toyota Tonero diesel range of counterbalanced trucks from 1.5t to 3.5t with 8%* improved fuel consumption and lower CO? from 2013, offering efficient engine solutions for customers.
The achievement of the fuel consumption reduction and lowering of the CO? is achieved on the proven Toyota designed and manufactured 1DZIII industrial diesel engine. This 36kW diesel engine has been optimised for fuel efficiency with the integration of a new fuel injection pump to regulate with a higher efficiency the fuel used for the combustion process.
This engine complies with the latest 97/68/EC emissions regulations**.
The availability of this engine has been extended to all tonnages of the Toyota Tonero diesel models from 1.5 to 3.5 tonne lifting capacities.
Craig Walby, TMHE Product Management Director explains, “Listening to our customers, we understand their needs to improve efficiency in operation, manage their operational costs and aim for a more sustainable way of working.
With these latest developments in 2013 for our class leading Toyota Tonero diesel engine forklifts, we are helping our customers improve further - by reducing their operational cost linking to fuel consumption and lowering CO? emissions. Also, by extending this more fuel efficient diesel engine to all tonnages on 1.5-3.5 tonne, we are increasing the choice for our customers.”
With sustainability as a fundamental value of Toyota Tonero’s design, these trucks are designed and manufactured for 99% recyclability at end-of-life in Toyota’s ISO 14001-certified plant in Ancenis, France.
