Toyota's lift vehicles offer improved stability, visibility, efficiency, ergonomics, and all the foremost safety technology that has made Toyota an industry leader. The company's System of Active Stability, also called "SAS", helps decrease the chance of mishaps and accidental injuries, and increasing productivity levels while minimizing the likelihood of product and equipment breakage.
System Active Stability senses numerous elements that may lead to lateral insecurity and potential lateral overturn. When any of those factors are detected, SAS instantaneously engages the Swing Lock Cylinder to stabilize the rear axle. This transitions the lift truck's stability trajectory from triangular in shape to rectangular, offering a major increase in stability which substantially reduces the probability of an accident from a lateral overturn. The Active Mast Function Controller or the Active Control Rear Stabilizer also assists to prevent injuries or accidents while adding stability.
The SAS systems were originally utilized on the 7-Series internal combustion lift trucks which were put on the market in 1999. These systems helped drive Toyota into the lead for industry safety standards. Now, SAS is adopted on practically every new internal combustion products and is standard equipment for the new 8-Series. There are more than 100,000 SAS-equipped lift trucks in action, exceeding 450 million hours combined. The increased population of SAS-equipped vehicles in the field, along with obligatory worker training, overturn fatalities across all brands have decreased by 13.6% since 1999. Furthermore, there has been an overall 35.5% decrease in industry wide collisions, loss of control, falls and overturn from a lift truck for the same period.
