The BT Lifter hand pallet truck range from Toyota Material Handling is evolving to meet changing operational needs and responding to trends in the wholesale and retail sectors.
Toyota offers a full range of unique hand pallet trucks including; BT Lifter standard with a lifetime guarantee, BT Pro Lifter for easier operation, BT Lifter Silent for out-of hours or residential deliveries and the BT Lifter Half Pallet to manage smaller pallet sizes.
Tony Wallis, Sales and Marketing Director from Toyota comments “The BT hand pallet truck range has been setting standards in strength, performance and innovation for over 60 year and it is no surprise they are still the best selling trucks on the market. Today’s BT Lifter range are proven to be the most durable, lasting up to five times as long as other makes in work cycle tests. This means that the BT Lifter offers the lowest lifetime cost”.
The standard BT Lifter LHM230 is the ideal hand pallet truck for everyday use but it has a unique advantage of a lifetime guarantee (99-year) on the fork frame, a clear demonstration of Toyota’s commitment to durability.
The BT Pro Lifter hand pallet truck, first launched nearly a decade ago has continued to evolve. Still unique within the marketplace the BT Pro Lifter remains a market leader for increased safety and productivity. Thanks to its unique Pro Start Technology (PST), a quick pump-action of the BT Pro Lifter’s tiller arm transfers power to the truck’s steering wheels which then turn a third of a revolution to overcome inertia and get the user on their way. With an ordinary hand pallet truck you need a force equivalent to 45kg to get a 2300kg loaded truck moving. Using PST you now only need a force equivalent to 15kg to get a similar load moving, reducing the risk of operator back strain and improving workplace safety.
The BT Lifter standard and BT Pro Lifter are both available to buy online at www.btpallettruck.co.uk.
The BT Lifter Silent helps to reduce the noise of truck usage, which is essential for operations where daily goods deliveries take place late at night or early in the morning. The BT Lifter Silent is equipped with high-quality rubber steering wheels and powerthane bogie wheels for whisper-quiet operation. In addition, the robust chassis has been developed with noise reducing material and rubber studs and bushings ensuring noise levels do not exceed 60 dBA or the sound of two people having a normal conversation.
Finally, the BT Lifter Half Pallet has been developed to handle different types of half pallets and quarter pallets, as well as a wide range of modern roll cages and special trolleys associated with deliveries straight into stores.
Wallis adds, “There has been a trend towards retailers using half and quarter pallets which are suitable for use in supermarkets, shop displays and where space is at a premium. These pallets can be difficult to move safely with standard trucks so we developed a hand pallet truck specifically designed for this use”.
