Check with your local Kalmar team to make sure which option is available for your Kalmar Terminal Tractor model.
Save fuel and reduce the surrounding environment's air pollution by limiting speed. By reducing or limiting the maximum speed the machine can drive, not only safety increases but also fuel consumption and unnecessary wear and tear of the equipment.
The Automatic Engine Stop System allows the machine to automatically turn off the engine after 5 minutes of idling. This saves avoidable idling, fuel consumption, and carbon emissions, achieving up to 10% in fuel savings. It also reduces running hours on the equipment during its lifetime, extending the lifespan of components.
Reduce noise pollution levels of the terminal tractor with the electrically and thermostatically controlled fan, which turns on only when it is required.
It helps to reduce wear and tear on tires, resulting 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.
You can optimize each duty cycle or mission by having instant control over your fleet and its KPI via Kalmar Insight. All important KPIs are listed on your screen, and you can monitor your fleet in real time and playback. This gives you not only savings in the short run but gives you the platform to even further optimize your entire operation and reduce carbon emissions.
By having automatic central lubrication, you save both time and maintenance. The system assures that all grease points covered by the system get enough lubricants, and no time must be put on this in the daily inspection. Having all intended covered joints properly greased reduces the wear and tear over time on your unit.
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.
To avoid freezing brakes and corrosion, it is essential to keep the air in the air tanks as dry as possible. This option eliminates excess moisture, secures uptime in the short run, and protects your brake system from corrosion.
Thanks to our intelligent chassis design, we offer fuel tanks that double the standard volume. It consists of dual 189 liters rectangular fuel tanks on both sides for a total of 378 liters. This means you can run your terminal tractor longer between refills and save time in your operations.
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.
It is an option available only when your machine 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 machine (depending on what model you have), you will maximise safety:
