The history of Toyota began in 1933 when Toyota Automatic opened an automobile department. It was founded by Kiichiro Toyoda, the eldest son of the owner of the company, who later made the Toyota car brand famous all over the world. In early 1935, the first passenger car, called the Model A1 (AA), and the first truck, the Model G1, were developed.
In mid-1936, the Model AA was put into mass production. A little later, the first successful export delivery to northern China was realized - four G1 trucks. In 1937, the automobile department became an independent company under the name Toyota Motor Co., Ltd. This is the whole pre-war history of the formation of Toyota.
In 1947, mass production of the Toyota Model SA began. In the 50s, a unique management structure was created to manage the company, designed to exclude all types of losses from the company's activities, this was not a call for total savings, but only an attempt to optimize the work of all structural divisions. It was successful - and by the mid-50s, Toyota became one of the world's leading engineering companies with diverse areas of interest.

Being primarily an automotive company, Toyota also pays great attention to the production of special automotive equipment and equipment for warehouses. Toyota cranes, drilling rigs and forklifts are known all over the world. The company has a giant research and development complex, which not only studies the latest trends in the automotive industry, but also develops a strategy for the development of engineering industries on a global scale.
The main models of Toyota forklifts

In the production of the corporation there are all types of loaders known today and used in economic activities. Almost all structural elements are produced at the factories of the corporation and are the company's own developments. Rare exceptions are possible on vehicles intended for export to countries with which Toyota has close ties and which produce spare parts, components and assemblies using the concern's technologies. These are the machines:
Toyota 02 7FD18;
Toyota 62 7FD20;
Toyota 62 8FD25;
Toyota battery electric forklift
Many machines developed in the Japanese concern are produced under other brands in China. But technical control is carried out by specialists of the developer company.
The concern puts the main emphasis on the production of Toyota electric forklifts, but diesel and gasoline models also occupy a considerable niche in the range of manufactured models. This mainly applies to medium and heavy loaders.
TOYOTA forklifts are equipped with eco-friendly, high-efficiency engines specially designed for use in industrial vehicles. They run on LPG or diesel fuel. The efficiency of work is determined by the selection of the optimal engine design for each type of forklift.

A wide range of loader models with a variety of operating parameters makes it possible to choose the optimal model for work in given conditions. Low-profile (h=1930 mm) models for work in railcars (1.0, 1.5 and 1.75 tons) have proven themselves well. These loaders can be equipped with a diesel particulate filter type DPF-II. They are equipped with masts with lifting heights from 2500 to 7000 mm.
The machines are equipped with tilt steering wheels. Adjustable seat provides the most comfortable driving position for work. A prime example of a diesel powered forklift is the Toyota 62-8FD25. Its characteristics:
Load capacity - 2500 kg;
Engine displacement - 3469 cm³;
Engine power - 49 kW;
Maximum torque at 1600 rpm 215 Nm;
Overall dimensions - 2635x1150x2110 mm;
Outer overall turning radius - mm 2280;
Lifting height of cargo capture -2700-7000;
Type of loader control - standing.
The Toyota 42 7FG15 forklift has a load capacity of 1500 kg and is capable of delivering cargo to a height of up to 6 meters. It works on gas or gasoline and is used in enclosed spaces of warehouses and workshops. The small turning radius makes it easy to work in containers and wagons. The FV type mast allows quick attachment changes, but models with swivel forks and sideshifters are the most common.
Toyota 32 8FG15 has similar parameters. This low profile Toyota LPG forklift has a capacity of 1500 kg and is designed for short haul and mechanized loading operations and on installed pallets. Toyota forklift trucks are powered by high-performance, environmentally friendly engines specially designed for use in industrial transport vehicles. They run on liquefied gas and comply with Euro 4 exhaust gas requirements.
