safety by design
The core of the numerous safety elements built into Toyota forklifts is the System of Active Stability (SAS). Exclusively Toyota and light years ahead of anything our competitors offer, SAS minimizes the likelihood of tip-over to reduce the risk for operators and the people around them. SAS is the direct result of Toyota's automotive traction control. When the system detects an issue that could lead to instability, it instantly engages the swing lock cylinder to stabilize the rear axle - changing the forklift's stability footprint from triangular to rectangular. This additional stability system helps prevent lateral overturns like no other forklift can.
In addition, SAS fork leveling control automatically adjusts the forklift's mast, so the forks are level with the ground for ease of retrieving pallets at high levels. The best part...SAS isn't an option or an upcharge on our forklifts-it comes standard on every four-wheel Toyota model that can accommodate it.
