3 Wheel Electric Trucks 1.5-1.8 tonne

New 3-wheel is packed with features


Launched at the end of 2006 in Japan the 3 wheel TCM FTB VII Series is packed with features. The pride that TCM takes in every truck is obvious when you look at the build quality, high specification of its components and the sheer joy and comfort in the driving position and safety features.

The FTB has the most powerful AC drive motors in its class and can be operated smoothly through improved feel and positions given to pedals and levers. It’s rare that one of these trucks ever comes back from a demo – and normally stays on site – for years and years.

Just look at the list of features you’ll be buying into: all backed by industry leading reliability and continuous operation times – over 8 hours in many applications.
