The 8-Series pneumatic tire truck features low-maintenance batteries, anti-restart ignition key switches, stamped steel engine hood, and self-adjusting brakes.

Toyota's System of Active Stability (SAS) electronically monitors and controls the truck's operations, such as engine oil pressure, engine coolant temperature, and battery charge status. It also helps reduce the risk of tipovers.

Other features include one-way automatic fork leveling, independent brake and inching pedals, and high cooling capacity radiator with a fan shroud.

The vehicle's Toyota-designed and -manufactured gas and diesel engines, the 4Y and 1DZ-II, are capable of meeting high performance demands in a variety of workplace environments.
