8FBE Battery Electric Forklift

From the versatility of the latest control technology to the comfort and operability delivered by our ergonomically designed operator compartment, Toyota's 8FBE redefines 3-wheel electric forklift quality and productivity. Outstanding energy efficiency has been achieved with new motors and drivers adopted to improve operating time; this has resulted in the 8FBE achieving an operating time of 20% longer compared to the predecessor 7FBE forklift model* (based on 1.5 tonne 8FBE v 7FBE forklift models with same battery capacity). (Overseas model shown in video. For full Australian specifications please refer to product brochures supplied by TMHA or contact TMHA for more details). *Comparison of operating times on Toyota operating cycle for 8FBE against 7FBE 1.5 tonne forklift models with same battery capacity. Assumes the forklift is operated in 55% of total working hours.

    • High Water Resistance -  quality engineering and strategic positioning of motors and controllers sees 8FBE forklift achieves a high water resistance rating of IPX4, meaning it can work as comfortably outside as it does inside. This makes it one of the most versatile forklifts on the market.
    • Robust body design has seen the 8FBE 3-wheel counterbalance forklift counterweight extended to reduce the risk of damage during turns.
    • Compact yet powerful AC Motors dramatically improve both travel and load handling performance to a level that approaches that of internal combustion forklifts.
    • Digital display with multi-function hourmeter and back-lighting.
    • Energy saving long life LED lights offer low energy consumption.
    • Wide view mast with industry-leading visibility.
    • Tight turning radius and excellent gradeability. 
    • Excellent travelling and lifting speeds.



    • Toyota SAS monitors key forklift operations, detecting and counteracting instability to help reduce the risk of tip-overs.
    • When it senses instability, the Active Control Rear Stabiliser locks the rear axle to help reduce lateral tip-overs.

    • Active Mast Function Controller senses and reacts to instability by limiting mast angle and speed according to the load's height and weight.
    • Active Steering Synchroniser ensure that the angle of the steering wheel corresponds to the angle of the rear steered wheels.
    • Operator Presence Sensing interrupts power and load handling operations if the operator is not in the normal operating position.
    • Emergency Power Shut-down Button switches off all power sources if this button is pressed.


    • Outstanding energy efficiency has been achieved in Toyota's 8FBE 3 wheel battery electric forklift  with new motors and drivers adopted to improve operating time; this has resulted in an operating time of 20% longer compared to the predecessor 7FBE forklift model (based on 1.5 tonne 8FBE v 7FBE forklift models with same battery capacity).
    • Accelerator release energy recovery system - when the accelerator is released this collects energy in the battery.
    • Brake regeneration energy recovery system - when the brake is activated the energy is recovered in the battery.
    • Switchback regeneration energy recovery system - during switchback the energy is recovered in the battery
    • Power Keep Function keeps load handling and travel performance as the battery charge gets low, allowing continuing efficient operation.
    • Power Select Function provides an optimal balance of performance and operating time.
