Konecranes has extended its container handling range
Konecranes Lift Trucks has launched a new empty container handler with a double stack capacity of up to 11 tons. The SMV ECC 6/7 110 DS  joins the extensive Konecranes fleet.

Dubbed the "No limitations Empty Container Handler", it makes full use of the ELME 580 Innovation, an 11 T telescopic side lift spreader for handling two empty containers simultaneously.

With horizontal lifting hooks and side clamps, loads are always secure and safe. Specifically designed for heavy-duty double handling applications and less sensitive to eccentric loading, it can even lift double reefer containers with aligned refrigerators. Hydraulic Powered Pile Slope (sideways articulation), a popular feature that makes it easier to attach containers from the side, is now standard.

"This is also the first forklift to use Smart Lift, an automatic height positioning system for empty container handlers," says Håkan Andersson, product manager, Konecranes Lift Trucks. "Driver stress will reduce and that will greatly improve efficiency."

The first 11 T double-stacking empty container handler from Konecranes boasts a flexible design which allows modification for different height requirements and a range of customisable options.

Options include TRUCONNECT, a remote monitoring service that creates Smart Connected Lift Trucks to track usage with real-time data and geofencing. Power Drive, a Konecranes ECOLIFTING solution, gives an environmentally-sound choice which maintains full performance while reducing fuel consumption and carbon emissions by up to 15%.

Patrik Lundbäck, director of sales and distribution, Konecranes Lift Trucks, says his company has seen an increase in demand for empty handlers with double handling and 11 T capacity, "especially from countries that export a lot of fruit in reefer containers."

"This truck’s ability to lift offset loads means increased productivity for operators, as it can handle any type of empty container."
