We're proud to introduce Tailift's newest line of lifts with manufacturing oversight straight from Toyota. The new line builds on the high performance, fuel efficiency, & low emission of the 9L series and then refines it.
A number of important improvements have been made on the Z-Series:
- Improved Transmission - Greatly reduces noise & maintenance with high reliability
- Anti-Rollback System - Safely travel up and down ramps without concern over losing control or power
- High Visibility Mast - Excellent view through the mast due to hidden hoses and cylinders
- Better Steering - The rear axle has been re-designed allowing the wheels to turn up to 85 degrees
- Increased Braking Ability - The brake pedal arm has been extended for greater force and the pump increased in size for nearly double the braking ability.
- Hidden Tilt Cylinders - Frequently requested to avoid marring from chains, over-spray, & debris
- Side Battery Access - Improves the ability to remove or exchange the battery without a crane
- Superior Ergonomics - Seating, steering, & controls have all been redesigned to provide more comfortable & efficient operation
- IP54 Rated Water & Dust Protection - The truck is now mostly protected from oil, water, & dust ingress
Tailift offers innovative design that integrates high end features & reliability without the high end price tag. They are durable enough to stand up to even the most challenging material handling applications. Z-Series trucks offer accessible maintenance, straightforward operation, enhanced operator ergonomics, and dedicated attention to detail with operator safety in mind. All Tailift forklifts have CE Certification, are produced in an ISO9001 accredited facility, and meet or exceed ANSI/ASME B56.1 standards.

Every Tailift Z forklift offers exceptional productivity, maximized visibility, and rugged construction. Backed by an expanding, Tailift Z trucks are ready for years of trouble free service.
Front Dual Drive AC Motors
Dual AC Drive Motors
Dual drive motors allow for greater turning radius.
When turning, if one wheel is going forward, the
other wheel is directed to reverse. This greatly
reduces the stress of turning on the forklift.
Voltage: 36 or 48 volt programmable
NEW Wide View Mast
Using hidden hose design, rear mounted rollers,
and rear mounted cylinders, the new wide view
mast affords excellent visibility of the load and the
Multifunction Instrument Panel
The compact Multifunction Instrument Panel is easy
to read and conveniently positioned on the operator
dash. The panel provides the critical information
required to ensure operator safety, & indicate maintenance
Tilting Steering Column
Tilt Steering provides flexibility and operator
ergonomics, allowing for adjustments to create a
comfortable ride for operators of all builds.
DURABLE CONSTRUCTION & HIGH PERFORMANCE
Integrated Heavy Duty Overhead Guard
Not just a bolt-on afterthought, the Integrated Overhead Guard is

Standard 6 Roller Fork Carriage
All Z-Series mast assemblies offer a 6-roller
carriage for smooth operation, and a standard 48-inch
(1220mm) high-load bracket for increased load control
and operator safety, even at full capacity.
Tight Steering Hydraulic Steer Axle
The Z-Series Hydraulic Steer Axle enables very
tight steering angles (up to 85 degrees) resulting in
great maneuverability and responsiveness. This
design delivers exceptional durability and reduced
maintenance when compared to traditional
