As land area gets more and more expencive, high stacking and a minimum of ground space becomes an important factor. Kalmar fulfils both the conditions of fast and efficient stacking and the condition of minimum ground area by container trucks ; the Kalmar range of mast trucks, empty container handlers, with the market's most stable design and with side spreaders for twist-lock (single) or hook handling (double stacking).
Empty stacking is a precise and time-consuming task, with simple and accurate positioning of containers a must. Therefore, it is important that the truck chassis, the lifting mast/boom and the side spreader are strong and stable. Kalmar empty container lift trucks with four basic capacities of 7, 8, 9 or 10 tonnes for a total stacking up to 8+1 containers height offers an extraordinary stability and total cost-efficiency.
