More efficient and cost-effective

The initial price of your new forklift is only part of the total running cost of your machine. What really matters is being able to reduce these costs without compromising on the productivity of your new machine, which is why our heavy forklift comes with numerous cost-saving features. You can reduce your fuel consumption by up to 25% with Eco-Drive, 10% with our variable hydraulic system and our new range of efficient drivetrains can cut fuel bills by an additional 5% when compared to previous generations.

Operator-focused design 

Designed for your drivers, our heavy forklift range prioritizes operator comfort and safety. Fitted with our ergonomically designed EGO cabin, these forklifts provide a superior operating experience, ensuring a smooth and secure operation even when handling heavy loads. With smart functions and a more intuitive workspace, your drivers will be able to operate at their most productive every day, with ease.

Up to 90% less CO2 emission with HVO100 fuel

Kalmar Stage 3,4 & 5 forklifts fitted with Volvo or Cummins engines are now certified to use HVO100. If you own a certified forklift, you just need to discuss with your local Kalmar support team if your equipment needs a minor upgrade or it is ready to start using HVO straight away.

It’s quick and easy to get fitted and will start cutting your CO2 emissions by up to 90% as soon as you start using HVO100 Fuel.
