Toyota 2.0 - 3.2 8FBCU 3-Wheel Cushion Tyre Battery Forklift BACK TO PRODUCTSBACK TO Battery Counterbalance

From the versatility of the latest control technology to the comfort and operability delivered by our ergonomically designed operator compartment, Toyota's 8FBCU redefines 3-wheel electric cushion tyre forklift quality and productivity.


  • AC powered system delivers more runtime per battery charge and maintains a higher level of performance throughout the work cycle
  • AC drive motor offers quicker acceleration, higher top speeds and smoother direction changes to help operators move more pallets per hour
  • AC lift motor features fully variable lift/lower control for fast, precise pallet retrieval or positioning.
    On-demand, full hydrostatic power steering offers low-effort control while providing precise maneuverability and load handling in confined work areas
  • Programmable performance parameters may be customised through the digital display to adjust to a variety of job applications and operator skill levels
  • Momentary hold and controlled descent feature maximizes lift truck control by regulating rolling speed when the accelerator pedal is released on a grade
  • Power keep function allows the 8-Series’ AC motors to continue to perform at productive levels even when the battery charge is low


  • Durable, curvilinear bolt-on overhead guard provides maximum operator protection with improved entry/exit and load visibility
  • Structurally rugged mast channel design provides maximum load capacity retention by limiting mast deflection
  • Overhead guard pillars are designed to enhance the frame’s rigidity and help withstand tough applications
  • Reinforced load backrest extension with recessed fasteners reduces the potential for product damage
  • Thick, one-piece battery wall provides durability against battery movement
  •  Plate-iron front fenders are used to help withstand tough applications
  • Fully-stamped steel side panels are thick to help withstand the harshest environments
  • Toyota AC motors are designed and built to endure the toughest working conditions
  • Tilt cylinder protection boots are available to reduce hydraulic leaks by limiting cylinder rod scouring and seal damage caused by dirt accumulation.


  • On-demand, full hydrostatic power steering provides quiet, responsive operation, helping to reduce operator fatigue
  • Lift-height and load-sensing acceleration control1 feature suppresses the lift truck’s acceleration rate if it detects the operator is attempting to suddenly drive off with a load at a high lift height
  • Lift-height and load-sensing vehicle-speed control1 feature limits the lift truck’s maximum travel speed in the event the operator attempts to travel while carrying a load at a high lift height
  • Momentary hold and controlled descent feature allows the lift truck to be started on an inclined surface without rolling backward
  • Small diameter, 2-spoke steering wheel with less turns lock-to-lock reduces operator arm and shoulder strain to enhance lift truck operability
  • Adjustable headlights with guards help increase field of vision in dark environments
  • Multi-function digital display with illuminated icons informs the operator of vital operating information for maximum uptime
  • Performance parameters may be customised through the digital display to adjust to a variety of job applications and operator skill levels
  • Multi-function hour meters allow for planned maintenance scheduling and the ability to perform time and motion studies
  • Programmable battery discharge indicator with lift interrupt enables customization of the truck’s battery discharge settings to closer match the battery’s discharge rate, helping to maintain proper battery life
  • Auto-Off System is seat-activated and programmable to conserve battery power
  • Auto height select option allows operators to program the lift truck to automatically stop the forks at pre-determined rack heights for maximum productivity
  • Power select indicator displays the lift truck’s performance setting currently in operation by highlighting either the S (Savings), P (Performance) or H (High Performance) mode


  • Toyota's exclusive System Of Active Stability (SAS) is the world's first active system for controlling forklift stability. By protecting the operator and load when driving, turning and lifting,
  • Toyota SAS provides advanced technology, helping to increase safety and improve productivity.
  • 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
