Forklift trucks 9–18 ton

The Kalmar DCG90–180 forklift truck is designed to offer you the best possible return on investment over its entire lifespan. Ideal for demanding applications such as steel and wood handling, this next-generation forklift combines low fuel consumption and superior lifting performance with easy maintenance and excellent reliability.

Performance at its best 

Kalmar’s G-generation forklifts feature the latest in fuel-efficient technology and offer low total cost of ownership. For demanding applications such as steel and wood handling, they provide the best possible return on investment.

The DCG90–180 is designed for superior uptime, lower fuel consumption and reduced maintenance costs.DCG90-180 is avaliable with the latest generation of engines from both Volvo or Cummins. They both meet the requirments of Stage 3B/Tier4i emission standrads.  

The DCG90-180 is eqipped with a variable hydraulic pumps as standard. The variable pump significantly lowers the strain on the hydraulic system and allows the forklift to fully perform when its needed. This features has also proven to lower the fuel consumption of the machine but at the same time raise the performance. 

Since these machines are often used in the toughest of environment we have improved the cooling system of DCG90-180. A variable hydraulic fan keeps the engine and hydraulic cool even at the most extreme operations. The fan can also be reversed to clean the cooler from dust and dirt. 

Our most productive driving environment ever

For operators, our EGO cabin provides an outstanding driving environment, packed with features that support productivity, efficiency and safety. The curved front and rear windows give exceptional visibility at all angles, particularly diagonally, and the profiled beams eliminate blind spots. The whole interior has been designed with the driver in mind.More or less everything is adjustable to fit all kind of drivers. For example the steering wheel can be adjusted in every possible angle, it can even be tilted sideways. Operators will also benefit from a fully integrated, rotatable seat. Perfect for handling large wood stacks.

A smoother ride

The DCG90-180 is also available in a Big Wheel version suitable for rough terrain conditions.
We developed Big Wheel to give you a smoother ride. Equipped with oversized front wheels, these forklifts allow you to work efficiently, and comfortably, even when surface conditions are poor. You get superb traction and can work productively in rough conditions where high ground clearance is required. The big tyres also provide excellent suspension when driving over uneven surfaces.

All-round excellence

Low fuel consumption
The advanced engine provides maximum power and torque at low rpm, which means improved fuel efficiency without compromising reliability, durability or performance. The new variable hydraulic system and modern lifting equipment can reduce fuel consumption by up to 18% compared to its predecessor, the DCE90-180.

Excellent lifting performance
The modern electric and hydraulic systems ensure fast response and better control. New variable hydraulic pumps increase productivity by enabling faster lifting speeds.

Reversible cooling fan
An optional reversible cooling fan keeps the radiator clean from potentially harmful dust, dirt or particles. A perfect option for Saw mills or other dusty environments. 

Faster, easier maintenance
The electrical cabinet is easy to access for maintenance, and all hydraulic oil filters can be accessed from a single location. Tilting the cabin and opening the engine cover exposes the entire power train, and all checkpoints for daily inspection are easily accessible at ground level.

Turnable driving seat
DCG90-180 can be offered with a 180 degrees turnable driving seat. A perfect option for safe operations when handling bulky goods.

Reliable electronics
The DCG90–180 features a fast, intelligent and stable electronics system that is reliable and easy to maintain. It has fewer connection points and cables compared to older systems and features a distributed and redundant CAN bus that monitors the condition and performance of the engine, control units, gearbox, valves and more.
