EAST CHICAGO, Ind. (February 11, 2021) —Toyota Material Handling Heavy Duty Division has launched a new forklift solution for customers challenged with lifting the heaviest materials by expanding the company’s heavy-duty lineup, with the new Hoist PV-Series pneumatic tire forklifts. This addition marks the first new product launch for Hoist following their addition to the Toyota family in April 2019.

The Hoist PV-Series has the power to move with a capacity ranging from 22,000 to 30,000 pounds. The PV-Series is available in five different models that deliver superior reliability, durability and overall value that is synonymous with the Hoist brand. The PV is engineered to perform heavy-duty tasks and is ideally suited for customers in the lumber, steel, and automotive industries.

“This product combines the very best that Hoist has to offer, guaranteeing customers unparalleled performance capability and the highest-quality engineering to help them with their heavy-lifting,” said Dan Klassen, Division President of TMH Heavy Duty Division.

The Hoist PV-Series comes direct from the 550,000-square-foot Toyota Material Handling Heavy Duty Division factory in East Chicago, Indiana. Built to deliver superior torque, this forklift is powered by a Cummins 4-cylinder 173 HP diesel engine. The electronically controlled Dana TE-10 transmission paired with the heavy-duty drive axle provides smooth, reliable performance and allows for maximum durability in high-capacity and outdoor applications. Advanced dependability is provided by engine protection and high-capacity cooling systems. The forklift also comes standard with a 7-inch TFT touch screen display that provides key operational insights, while fingertip controls allow operators to adjust hydraulic functions with enhanced ease and comfort.

An available PIN-code entry system provides user access control to help limit unauthorized use of the forklift, while the specially-designed pillar-free cabin helps operators maintain clear, unobstructed sightlines. Ergonomic and comfort preferences can also be tailored with available customization options for the standard premium cab with air-ride seat and climate controls. Additional features include wet-disc brakes, an advanced hydraulic system, and a manual tilting cab.
