Your worksite deals in a variety of heavy and unconventional load but the thought of fielding several specialized trucks makes your head and your balance sheet hurt. It’s time to adjust your perspective on what one forklift can do with the Toyota High-Capacity Adjustable Wheelbase Forklift (aka THDA). This truck is another member of our Toyota Heavy Duty (THD) line, built to handle your toughest material handling tasks indoors and out. The THDA is a highly customizable machine uniquely suited to heavy industrial applications such as manufacturing and metals. Let’s take a closer look at what it offers.

Removable counterbalance slabs on the THDA
Add and remove slabs for optimum performance
As the name suggests, the counterbalance can extend rearward, giving you the power to adjust to any number of load weights with models ranging in capacities from 15,000 to 80,000lbs! When you need to move large machinery or engines, your THDA is also equipped with a multi-stage telescopic boom. The Quick-Change Fork System lets you switch between the two WITHOUT tools in a matter of minutes. If that wasn’t enough, the THDA features removable counterweight slabs to further fine tune the lift to your exacting specifications.

The High-Capacity Adjustable Wheelbase also has brains to match its impressive brawn. The THDA comes equipped with the first touchscreen ever on a Toyota Forklift, putting hydraulic schematics, wiring diagrams, operator and repair manuals at your fingertips. The MD4 display also allows your operators to monitor important info such as oil pressure, fuel level and travel speed. In addition, you have access to an estimated capacity calculator (note: always rely on your forklift’s nameplate for accurate capacity info). By inputting load center, attachment type, slab count, and counterweight extension length, you can get a rough estimate on your lift capacity and adjustments to make.

Remote Control Box for Adjustable Wheelbase Forklift
Control your THDA from this easy to use console
Sometimes a large load blocks your operator’s ability to make precise maneuvers. Wish you could view things from a different angle? The THDA delivers with an optional remote-control system. You can lift, lower, steer, travel and adjust the counterbalance all from an intuitive hand-held device that stows in an onboard storage area when not in use.

Underneath it all, you still get Toyota’s unbeatable quality and performance. You can choose between 4 and 6-cylinder engines with dual LP/Gasoline fuel capabilities. Your engine choice is mated to a 2-speed hydrostatic transmission, with high and low-gear settings. Finally, the multifunction display gives you unparalleled control over the torque and speed, RPM control and access to a hydrostatic drive pump.

There are so many ways to customize and adjust the performance of your THDA that there’s almost no limit to what you can accomplish.
