Kalmar has an extensive list of options available that can help to improve operational safety, productivity or lower your fuel consumption. You choose which are right for you.
Check with your local Kalmar team to make sure which option is available for your Kalmar Terminal Tractor model.
The safety of the driver comes first. This option is a structure made of solid steel, fitted on the chassis behind the cabin, preventing the cabin in case of a falling container. It is fitted to the main frame rails with heavy-duty brackets to prevent the cabin from collapsing if a container accidentally falls on it.
An option to prevent damage to the cabin if the driver misses the king ping when backing the terminal tractor underneath a trailer. It consists of heavy-duty steel plates fitted to the chassis behind the cabin.
By installing this option, the driver will be able to heat and adjust the outside mirrors from the cabin with an on & off switch. With the exterior mirrors electrically heated and adjustable, the driver avoids climbing the terminal tractor to adjust and clean them manually, especially in rough conditions. This improves the safety of the operator and productivity.
It is an option available only when your terminal tractor is fitted with tank guards. The steps access lighting consists of a light directed at the steps to prevent personnel from falling hazards in dark conditions at night. It also works after the ignition is turned off.
By adding one of the following options to your terminal tractor (depending on what model you have), you will maximise safety:
When the ignition is engaged and the parking brake disengaged, the interlock option warns the operator with a warning light and audio signal.
When the parking brake is disengaged and the seat belt is not on, the interlock option warns the driver with an audible alarm.
Helps to reduce wear and tear on tires which results in reduced fuel consumption. Bluetooth sensors keep the driver advised of the condition of the tires. Active care of your tires can result in a 10-40% increase in tire life and up to a 10% decrease in fuel consumption.
The Kalmar Drive Speed Limitation System automatically restricts the speed at which your equipment can be operated, helping to reduce wear and tear as well as fuel consumption.
