Why Toyota's 8FGU25 is the Swiss Army Knife of Forklifts

Product Name:  8fgu25
Manufacturer:  Toyota
Interesting features:  Uses the
4Y engine manufactured by Toyota specifically for this forklift.  It provides high torque at low RPM for excellent fuel efficiency. Active Mast Control and the System of Active Stability come are standard features that enhance safety and improve control of the forklift and its load.
Price Range:  Starting in the low $30,000’s
Value for the money: Excellent
Options: There are many factory options available in addition to aftermarket options.  Some of the most popular options are 3rd and 4th function valves to provide added versatility such as and side-shifting fork positioners,  and one of the reasons the 8fgu25 is called the “Swiss Army Knife” of forklifts.

Traction-treaded solid pneumatic tires are a popular option because they are puncture-resistant yet offer a smooth ride over rougher terrain. For applications where the forklift used is used on non-paved applications (driveways, loading ramps) in addition to smooth surfaces - this is truly the best of both worlds.

Before You Buy a New Forklift, Visit Our East Bay Demo Center


Buying a forklift without doing a hands-on demo is like buying a car without taking a test drive. Two forklifts that seem equal on paper can turn out to be very different in real life.

You’ve probably spent a lot of time researching the lift truck you want, but only a hands-on demo can ensure the equipment you plan to buy meets your standards. Bring your operators, equipment maintenance team and other stakeholders to try one or more forklifts on different pallet racking systems at our state of the art showroom in Livermore, California.
