Cut your costs and emissions.

Electrically powered straddle carriers are quicker and easier to maintain as they have less moving parts and can cut your fuel bills as electrically powered solutions are normally more cost-effective than traditionally powered straddle carriers.

 

Why choose a Kalmar Straddle Carrier?

 

  • Kalmar Straddle Carriers are highly productive as they can handle two containers at a time and stack up to four containers high, lifting up to 60 tonnes
  • You get a highly efficient power unit with our FastCharge Straddle Carrier producing zero emissions at source
  • Kalmar Straddle Carriers have the strongest frame in the industry with a streamlined yet extremely rigid design which requires no external bracing
  • For manual operations our Straddle Carriers are fitted with an ergonomically designed cabin that puts everything in easy reach of your operators
  • All of our straddle carriers are easy and safe to service and have servicing intervals of up to 1,000 hours
  • Your operators will stay safe and in control at all times, as our whole range of straddle carriers are fitted with an active stability control system, continually monitoring speed, turning radius and spreader position and prevents accelerating your straddle carrier when required
  • All our straddle carriers also feature a rope hoist system with only eight pulleys, making them highly efficient, safer and easier to maintain than other lifting system alternatives.

 

An alternative solution.

If you are looking for an alternative to a Kalmar Straddle Carrier you may want to consider a Kalmar Shuttle Carrier, which are smaller but can still work effectively picking and placing containers independently decoupling your operations between your STS and landside operations.
