Kalmar, part of Cargotec, is launching a new range of diesel forklifts available with five to nine ton capacity.
The new Kalmar DCG50-90 range features the EGO cabin and an optional reverse camera to improve rear visibility.
Along with climate control, ergonomic features make the EGO cabin a safe and comfortable working environment that can be customised to each driver's needs.
So far, 87% of existing Kalmar customers have confirmed an interest in repurchasing.
The new forklifts also have an optimised drive train, hydraulic system, and electrical system that improves productivity by 10% compared to the previous generation.
This means that operators will be able to perform on average 100 more lifts per week.
Compatibility with Kalmar SmartFleet, a equipment monitoring and optimisation tool for analysing performance data, helps to further improve efficiency and productivity.
The DCG50-90 range uses AGCO 44AWF Stage 4 engines to reduce fuel consumption by 15% and NOx emissions by 89% when compared to Stage 3 engines.
Peter Ivarsson, Director, Forklift Trucks at Kalmar, says: “We're proud to introduce the new range of industrial diesel forklifts. These machines are highly customisable to a range of operations and are all designed specifically to help our customers do more work in less time – which should ultimately translate into larger revenues and higher productivity.”
The new range of light forklifts will be presented at the LogiMAT exhibition in Stuttgart, 14-16 of March, in Hall 8, Stand 8B14.
