No matter what you are lifting in your foundry, factory, terminal or assembly line, the new Kalmar Heavy Forklift range will do it efficiently, effectively and safely.

Designed for your drivers

Kalmar’s heavy forklift trucks range comes fitted with their ergonomically designed EGO cabin, which provides an enhanced operating experience for your drivers. With its smart functions and a more intuitive workspace, your drivers will be able to operate at their most efficient every day, with ease.

More efficient and cost-effective

The initial price of your new forklift is only part of the total running cost of your machine. What really matters is being able to reduce these costs without compromising on the productivity of your new machine, which is why Kalmar’s heavy forklift trucks come with numerous cost-saving features. You can reduce your fuel consumption by up to 25% with Eco-Drive, 10% with Kalmar’s variable hydraulic system and the new range of efficient drivetrains can cut fuel bills by an additional 5% when compared to previous generations.

Improved visibility

Kalmar’s EGO cabin offers enhanced visibility both forwards and backwards making it safer to operate and there are numerous optional safety extras to make your machine even safer.

Safer to access

Your drivers will now be more secture entering or exiting their forklift, as there are more handrails and bars, plus all the climbing surfaces are non-slip. There are also steps on the right-hand side that can be used to enter or exit the cabin in emergencies.

Easier to service

With a tiltable cabin, hatches instead of a hood and easily accessible service points, your forklift will be easier to service and maintain.

Common system for quicker trouble-shooting

With common control and electrical systems you will be able to identify and trouble-shoot any problems with ease. Getting the issues solved faster means you will achieve a much higher utilisation rate with your new machine.

Powerful lifting equipment

Kalmar’s forklifts are built to take on the bulky loads as every component has been carefully selected to meet the highest standards, so you get a quality solution that has been built to last.

Specify the forklift you need

With a range of wheelbases, drivetrains, masts and attachments you can build a forklift that will be exactly right for your business.

Optimise your fleet
