Kalmar has launched a new range of forklifts, the 'Kalmar Essential Range', for demanding applications including container, steel and wood handling.
The Essential range comprises 12 models with capacities ranging from 10 to 18 tons that can be customised with a variety of power, mast, cabin and safety options.
Kalmar has reported that the new addition to its product portfolio features “an easy-maintenance electrical system, common driver interface, high-quality components and a highly stable and durable chassis”.
The company has also stated that a new Essential cabin has improved driver comfort and safety with “excellent all-round visibility, power steering and easy lift operation” as well as non-slip stairs and handrails.
Compatibility with Kalmar SmartFleet, a equipment monitoring and optimisation tool that analyses performance data, helps to further improve efficiency and productivity.
Peter Ivarsson, Director of Kalmar's Forklift Trucks, said: “The new Essential Range complements our current range of medium-sized forklifts by providing a value based choice for our customers.
“The Essential range is designed to exceed customers' expectations by delivering everything they need in a medium-sized forklift. Our forklifts have proven themselves in the most demanding lifting applications around the world, and this new range will further strengthen their reputation for quality, reliability, operator comfort available for all.”
The new range has been introduced to the Americas market and was presented for the European market yesterday, on June 20, 2017, in Kalmar Mobile Equipment Sales Conference in Lidhult, Sweden.
