September 15 - Kalmar claims to have entered the record books with its latest reachstacker, Super Gloria, which has lifted a steel component weighing over 100 tonnes in Lidhult, Sweden.

The new DRG-1000-92 ZXS reachstacker range is the world's largest industrial reachstacker in Kalmar's Gloria range, claimed the company.

The new design has been developed to meet customer specifications, with lift capabilities of up to 120 tonnes depending on application.

Kalmar says that the innovative boom design with rotation, and the wide range of attachment options, means that these machines can be adapted for a huge variety of applications, including steel handling, wind turbine construction, and other demanding heavy lifting tasks.
