The G-Generation top loaders replace the F-Generation range
Kalmar is introducing a new range of G-Generation top loaders with improved hydraulics, fuel consumption and operator ergonomics.
Top loaders are typically used in container terminals for moving loaded containers from trailers to a stack or vice versa.
The G-Generation top loaders, which replace the previous F-Generation range, feature a variable hydraulic lifting system, which provides exactly the right amount of lifting power based on the weight of the load, meaning the driver does not have to rev the engine while lifting.
"The variable hydraulic system reduces fuel consumption and emissions by up to 10%; further savings are enabled by a more efficient driveline and a lock-up gearbox that uses the engine's power more efficiently," says David Malmström, business development manager at Kalmar Forklift Trucks.
The new G-Generation top loader can also be delivered with Kalmar's Eco Drive feature, which can cut fuel consumption and emissions by a further 15%.
To minimise downtime, the new-generation machines have improved diagnostics, an optimised chassis and fewer moving parts and components. Maintenance is also quicker, easier and more cost-effective, thanks to easily accessible service points and extended service intervals.
