Kalmar has introduced a new ‘streamlined’ three row reachstacker, the DRF420-450L, with a lifting capacity of up to 45 tonnes in first, 30 tonnes in the second and 15 tonnes in the third row of containers.
It can lift containers five high and the container can be picked or dropped-off by the machine approaching from any angle up to 90 degrees
Kalmar says that the DRF420-450L provides increased customer value, with performance and functions that are suitable for terminals with medium capacity and average operational requirements.
Mikael Persson, vice president, reachstackers and empty container handlers at Kalmar’s owner -Cargotec, said: “Some of our new customers do not have the operational requirements that we offer with our current models, and some new applications will not need heavy and intensive usage of their machine. That’s why we have introduced the DRF L reachstacker – a streamlined machine with performance and functions that have been specially developed for the day-to-day reality at terminals that form part of the continental distribution chain.”
“The new model has low operating costs especially regarding energy consumption and maintenance costs and are supported by Cargotec’s service and original Kalmar spare parts globally.
