Cargotec continues to develop its range of Kalmar reachstackers. The latest addition to the product range is the Kalmar DFR420-450L, which provides flexible container handling with increased customer value. This reachstacker model has performance and functions that are suitable for terminals with medium capacity and average operational requirements.
Mikael Persson, Vice President, Reachstackers and Empty Container Handlers at Cargotec, sees that as containerisation continues, new customers and new markets are opening up for container handling equipment.
"Some of our new customers do not have the operational requirements that we offer with our current models, and some new applications will not need heavy and intensive usage of their machine. We will ensure that we can meet this growing need for cost-effective, productive and flexible container handling. That’s why we present the Kalmar DRF L reachstacker – a streamlined machine with increased customer value. Its performance and functions have been specially developed for the day-to-day reality at terminals that form part of the continental distribution chain.
"The new model has an excellent level of total cost of ownership. It has low operating costs especially regarding energy consumption and maintenance costs. Kalmar reachstackers are supported by Cargotec’s service and original Kalmar spare parts globally."
Container handling with a reachstacker is one of the most flexible handling solutions. They allow handling of loaded containers efficiently in narrow spaces, while still ensuring that the driver has optimum visibility. Reachstackers minimise moves, especially with second or third row picking ability. Kalmar DRF L reachstacker has a lifting capacity of up to 45tonnes in first, 30 tonnes in the second and 15 tonnes in the third row of containers. It can lift containers to five high and the container can be picked or dropped-off by the machine approaching from any angle <90 degrees.
