Our forklifts


Since launching, Locators have had an exclusive deal with Toyota Materials Handling Equipment. Amongst our fleet, our standard issue is Toyota’s Electric Counterbalance Range, whose features include:

  • Functional self-levelling forks
  • Automatic tilt angle with tilt speed restrictions in both directions
  • Synchronised power steering and a stabilising rear axle
  • Reductions in speed when laden with raised contents.
  • Programmable performance and weight indicators

The Toyota models have a typical load capacity between 1 and 8 tons. However, our top-end Combi Straddle Carriers have a load capacity of 40 and 100 tons! Despite their stature, Combi’s offer a lighter environmental footprint compared to similar models. Fuel efficient and with dozens of safety features, they are highly recommended by us.
