Essential Terminal Tractor. TL2

Our new Kalmar Essential Terminal Tractor TL2 has been designed by combining our local knowledge and insights with the accumulated knowledge of manufacturing over 70,000 terminal tractors since we establish the category. In 1958 Kalmar built the first terminal tractor and has since stayed at the front of the market by focusing on delivering high quality machines with innovative features that have positive impact on the productivity of your business.

Our latest machine is built on our tested and proven platform, so you get a reliable and robust machine that can handle the harshest of conditions. Our Essential Terminal Tractor TL2 is built to last.

Built on a proven platform.

With over 10,000 machines built globally on our tested and proven G-Generation platform you can expect a terminal tractor that is ready to take on your toughest tasks. Using our proven platform, you get a common electrical system and standardised control panels, making it easier for your driver to change machines.

Built tough.

You get a highly stable and robust bolted chassis design, which is easier and quicker to maintain, repair or change than a welded chassis. This will reduce the time repairs take and is more flexible should you want to change the chassis in any way in the future

Built to save you money.

Smart programming combined with our highly efficient driveline can reduce your overall fuel consumption by up to 15%, saving you money and reducing your carbon emissions substantially at the same time.

Built for comfort.

Our new Essential cabin has been designed to keep your drivers comfortable and in control, even when working in difficult situations. The cabin is fitted with an improved climate control system and has an adjustable seat and steering wheel to make sure your driver is happy and operating at their best.

Common electrical systems.

All our machines built on our global G-Generation platform use the same error codes for fast and easy trouble shooting.

A standardised driver control panel.

All our new machines have similar operator controls and interfaces, making it easier to move from one type of machine to another.

Less moving parts.

With the TL2 Essential’s hydraulics system you have fewer moving parts to service and maintain over mechanical alternatives, saving you even more time.

Easier and faster to service.

With an easy lift cabin and all service points accessible from the ground, servicing will be safer and quicker.

Long service intervals.

With industry leading service intervals your terminal tractor will spend less time being serviced and more time operating in your yard.

Safe to access.

The Kalmar TL2 Essential Terminal Tractor features non-slip access surfaces and hand rails for easy and safe access to the cabin and rear platform.

Improved visibility.

Our new cabin has improved visibility both forwards and to the rear platform, so your driver can operate safely at all times.

More options to choose from.
