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