Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has announced the launch of its new heavy forklift truck, the Kalmar DCG180-330, in the 18-33 tonne capacity sector. With a clear commitment to boosting productivity, yet reducing operational costs, Kalmar has designed this machine from the ground up, using customer feedback as an integral part of the development process. This machine is designed especially for heavy cargo handling in industrial applications, such as steel and manufacturing industry, as well as ports and terminals.
The Kalmar DCG180-330 now includes features that set new standards of performance and safety. The EGO cabin provides the operator with exceptional visibility, low noise levels and intelligent ergonomics, representing one of the most user-friendly environments available. The operator console is the operator’s extended arm as it is easy to understand, use and adjust. Providing maximum flexibility, the console puts controls, switches and indicators within easy reach, ensuring the most efficient forklift operation possible.
The operator can also select three different drive modes using the control panel. Each optimised to meet operational requirements, the operator simply shifts between modes to adapt the forklift to every type of application. The ‘Power’ setting maximises performance by increasing the number of tonnes moved per hour. ‘Normal’ setting balances power and economy to optimise profitability. If total cost of operations outweighs the need for performance, then the ‘Economy’ mode is preferred.
Compared to the previous model, the new DCG180-330 consumes up to 15% less fuel in standard configuration. By using the ‘Economy’ mode, another 15% of fuel savings can be reached. Add Kalmar’s renowned product quality and reliability, improved efficiency and higher uptime, and you see the true value of Kalmar equipment.
Lift speeds have been boosted thanks to variable hydraulic system that senses the load in every operation and adjusts the oil flow accordingly. Lifting cycles are now up to 40% faster compared to the previous model, preparing the machine faster for the next lift.
The Kalmar DCG180-330 features Cummins and Volvo engines which provide optimum power, yet contribute to a significant overall reduction in fuel consumption whilst ensuring compliance with the latest EPA Stage IV/EU Tier 4 Final emission standards.
Thomas Malmborg, Vice President, Forklift Trucks, said, “Kalmar continues to set the standard for forklift productivity, safety and low ownership costs. Purchase price is only one of many factors affecting total cost of ownership. In fact, price is a minor cost factor over the lifetime of a forklift. What truly matters in the long run is cost control and operational efficiency and they will show clearly on the customer’s bottom line.”
