Heavy Forklift Trucks 18–52 ton

When your business requires a solution that is ready for the heaviest, most challenging of loads, our range of heavy-duty forklifts offers you everything you need. These powerful and efficient trucks deliver for our customers around the world every day, by being reliable, flexible, agile and offering a superior driver experience.

Ready to take on your heaviest of loads, DCG180-540.

Our new range of heavy forklifts can handle loads of 18 to 54 tonnes with ease. They have been built to deliver on power and performance - yet designed to feel as agile and smooth to operate as a much smaller machine. 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.

Our heavy forklift range comes fitted with our ergonomically designed EGO cabin, which provides a superior operating experience for your drivers. With its smart functions and a more intuitive workspace, your drivers will be able to operate at their most productive 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 our heavy forklift comes with numerous cost-saving features. You can reduce your fuel consumption by up to 25% with Eco-Drive, 10% with our variable hydraulic system and our new range of efficient drivetrains can cut fuel bills by an additional 5% when compared to previous generations.

 

There are many ways you will benefit from our heavy forklift range of solutions.

 

Improved visibility.

Our EGO cabin provides improved visibility both forwards and backwards making it safer to operate and there are a number of additional safety options to make your machine even safer.

Safer to access.

Your drivers will now be safer 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 issues easily. Getting the issues solved quicker, means you will achieve a much higher utilisation rate with your new machine.

Powerful lifting equipment.

Our forklifts are built to take on the big 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.

Kalmar Insight is a performance management tool that allows you to track your equipment while operating, making it easier for you to make decisions that will help improve your overall operations.
