I personally like the Electric Pneumatic Forklift (EPF) for many reasons, but its ease of use, clean power, and versatility stand out the most. For example: when you walk inside a warehouse that uses electric forklifts you will notice two things:

1. You do not smell propane, which means your employees are not breathing in harmful gases.  

2. The forklifts are quiet. Electric forklifts make hardly any noise compared to their propane counterparts. This makes it easier to hear and communicate while the forklifts are in operation.

The EPF can be used indoor/outdoor for many different applications, making it an easy choice for people who need a forklift for dual purposes. It’s the Swiss Army Knife of Electric Forklifts.

The Toyota Electric Pneumatic Forklift is a stand out player in the Class 1 realm. Its reliability and state of the art technology put it leaps and bounds ahead of the other guys. The Toyota EPF is reliable, easy to use, and versatile enough for any outdoor or indoor/outdoor application that requires durability and performance.
