In January 2019, new Stage V European Emission Regulations were introduced for all Non-Road Mobile Machinery, including forklift trucks. The purpose of Stage 5 is to reduce the emissions from combustion engines by lowering the limit of exhaust levels of diesel and LPG engines.
At Toyota, we made sure our engines are compliant, and every internal combustion engine we provide will be stage V compliant. But what is a stage V engine and how can it benefit you?
What is a Stage V engine?
The Stage V engine is a step up from the standard four-cylinder engine, and it’s designed for maximum performance. It uses the latest technology to provide more power and efficiency than ever before.
The engine can produce up to 200 horsepower and 155 lb-ft of torque, making it the perfect choice for those who need a little extra punch in their engines. Additionally, the engine can achieve up to 35 miles per gallon, making it extremely fuel efficient.
How does it benefit you?
The main advantage of the Stage V engine is its efficiency. It is designed to use up to 30 percent less fuel than other engines. This means that you’ll save money in the long run and reduce your carbon footprint. The engine is designed to reduce emissions, making it a great choice for companies that are looking to achieve sustainability goals.
The Stage V engine also offers improved reliability over conventional engines. It is designed to be more durable, and it is capable of lasting longer than other engines. This means that you can expect your engine to last longer with exceptional performance. Additionally, the engine is designed to be more reliable, meaning that it won’t need to be serviced as often.
Finally, the Stage V engine is designed to be easy to maintain. Many of its components are designed to be self-cleaning, meaning that you won’t have to spend time and money on regular maintenance.
The Toyota Tonero range of engine-powered counterbalance forklift trucks are all fitted with Stage V engines, available with torque converter or hydrostatic transmissions (HST) and in capacities of 1.5 to 8 tonnes.
