Toyota Material Handling Donates New Forklift to Indiana Branch

Gene Ernst, manager of OGT’s Indiana branch was overjoyed with having a Toyota electric forklift donated for their warehouse from Toyota Material Handling in Columbus IN! It features a 3,000 pound lift capacity on cushion tires which makes it a versatile machine around the warehouse and yard. A side shifter was added to make loading and unloading an easier job by not needing to get so close to the edge of the container or truck box. It also has a self-leveling tilt operation that allows for keeping the forks level when reaching higher to load or unload a skid. What a blessing to have this gift from Toyota which is an amazing piece of equipment for their warehouse volunteers to use! In 2000, Indiana branch received its first forklift from Toyota which will be passed onto OGT’s Wichita branch, so the gift keeps giving. Thank you Toyota Material Handling for this much needed gift.
