Saving time and money.

There are many ways you can save time and money with a Kalmar Essential Empty Container Handler or Lifter:

  • With easily accessible service points and extended servicing periods, maintenance tasks will be quicker and easier to perform, increasing your machine availability.
  • Your drivers will benefit from common electronics, controls, and diagnostics across the entire range for ease of operation, so it’s easier to move between and operate different Kalmar machines.
  • By combining the latest generation of highly efficient engines with the improved DANA TE 14300 3+3 transmission you get a choice of drive lines that will reduce fuel consumption by up to 10%, without compromising on power. Engines are available in Tier 3/EU Stage 3 or Tier 4F/EU Stage 4 emission compliance.

Smoother and more efficient empty container handling.

Our Essential Range of empty container handlers is all fitted with a load sensing hydraulic system, which applies the right amount of power to get the job done efficiently by measuring the exact weight of the container being handled.

Should you require any additional power to get a specific job done quicker, you can use our power on-demand system. This system tells the engine to produce additional power at the touch of a button when needed.

A safer way to lift empty container handlers.

All of our empty container handler masts can be tilted both forwards and backwards by up to +/- 3 degrees. Tilting backwards helps stabilise your load while moving and makes it easier to lift a container off the stack. Being able to tilt forwards makes placing a container either on the stack or on a trailer much easier and safer. There are optional tilting packages available with different tilting angles.

Our Essential Empty Container Handler also comes fitted with many safety features as standard:

  • All are fitted with non-slip access surfaces
  • Three-point access to keep operators safe
  • Two exit doors in the cabin, in case of an emergency
  • LED lights for better visibility
  • An electrically operated hand brake which is automatically applied when the engine stops
  • And there is an overload management system that warns your driver should they exceed the specified limits.

You can also enhance your employees’ safety further by fitting one of our optional packages, such as:

  • Rear Mounted Cameras so your drivers can see what is happening behind them
  • Additional LED lights for operating in restricted light conditions
  • A Speed Limiter to make sure your drivers are always driving responsibly.

For a full list of available options please refer to the specifications section of the Essential Empty Container Handler brochure, available to download below.

An ergonomically designed cabin.

The Essential Cabin has been ergonomically designed so everything is in easy reach for your drivers. You get a choice of joysticks that will increase operational safety and control, as all movements are managed from one point.

Our Essential Cabin also benefits from a new climate control package. This system has extra strong fans, so condensation can be removed quickly, and a comfortable operating environment maintained for your drivers.
