Loaded container handlers

Our heavy-duty DCF-series loaded container handlers have been developed exclusively for ports and terminals, where productivity and reliable, smooth operation are a must. Impressive numbers on paper are not enough, so our machines exceed your expectations where it matters – in real life.

Power and productivity

Kalmar's loaded container handler has a capacity of 41 tons and is able to handle 20–40’ containers and stack up to five-high  at full capacity. In order to maximize productivity and safety, Kalmar top-lift handlers are designed to provide the operator with full visibility and control over every single step in the handling process. The combination of our Spirit Delta cabin and open mast and gantry design ensures 360º visibility, while the electronic support feedback and control system provide precise control over spreader fine-tuning for uneven levels or loads, mast tilt, extension, and twistlock landing.

Up to 50% faster
This model has fast travel speeds together with lifting speeds that are up to 50% faster than its predecessor.
Even when fully loaded the DCF–410 exceeds all competitorslifting speeds.

Best horsepower-to-weight ratio

The DCF has the best horsepower-to-weight ratio in the business,
this results in better fuel economy and reduced exhaust emissions.

Maximum spreader mobility 
The DCF Series features optimal side-shift and pile
slope, plus slewing. This means more stable operation and more efficient drivers.

Greater stability 
The DCF has a wider steer axle plus a longer wheelbase. The result is a better feeling of comfort and safety for your drivers.
