Kalmar introduces heavy-duty forklift

Kalmar has launched the DCG380-540 forklift that has been designed for loads up to 54 tons (49 tonnes). 

Stefan Hultqvist, vice president, forklifts at Kalmar, said: “We wanted to develop a solution that would offer customers who are handling heavy, demanding loads on a daily basis the same smooth operation, comfort and precise control of a smaller-capacity machine. Driver experience has a very important role to play in enabling improvements in productivity and safety, and we believe this new solution delivers exactly what our customers need.”

It has been designed for the handling of heavy loads typically seen in the stevedoring and metal industries. 

Kalmar said it has improved lifting and lowering speeds combined with load-sensing hydraulics to ensure smooth, safe handling.
