From container handling to industrial, intermodal, and barge applications, explore the reliable and robust Gloria range.

Lifting equipment that helps drive efficiency and reduce downtime

Our Gloria Range of Reachstackers is the result of all the years of experience we’ve gathered since we pioneered the world’s first commercial reachstacker in the 80s. Now we’ve taken it a step further, increasing efficiency and reducing downtime so you can lift, stack, and handle containers with ease. Because the most important thing we’ve learned through all these years is that it all comes down to one thing: keeping your business on the move, no matter what. 


All Kalmar counter balanced machines, including reachstackers, empty container handlers and forklifts have been updated to meet safety standard EN 1175:2020 to ensure that working with a Kalmar machine is as safe as it can be.

How have we improved the availability of the Gloria Reachstacker Range?

With our latest generation of reachstackers, we’ve managed to boost performance once again with newly designed integrated components and improved operator interfaces.

Here’s how we did it:

  • Improved components: As an example, our new segmented wiring makes maintenance and replacement simpler and quicker. And with fewer exposed components there is less wear on wiring, hydraulics, and other connectors, improving the reliability and availability of your Kalmar Reachstacker.
  • Proactive monitoring: Kalmar was the world’s first manufacturer to use CAN-bus technology as a standard, as it automatically locates failures, compensating with backup bus wires and connectors before the fault can affect your reach stacker. The result, is less downtime when handling materials of moving containers.
  • Easier to service: All major service points are accessible from the ground and the engine bay has removable top covers, making it quicker and safer to perform routine checks and maintenance tasks on your reach stacker.


Will your drivers benefit from our new EGO Reachstacker Cabin?

Keeping your drivers safe and comfortable is not only good for your drivers, it is also good for business. Which is why each of our Gloria Reachstackers is fitted with our ergonomically designed EGO cabin, giving your drivers a safer and more comfortable work environment.

We have improved the operator’s visibility with an open cabin design for optimised visibility at all angles. Smart profiles and curved windows combine to give exceptionally strong forward, diagonal, and rearward visibility. A range of optional cameras are available that can be mounted in different positions on your reachstacker to improve the operator’s visibility of their
operating environment.

In addition, every EGO Reachstacker Cabin is fitted with an adjustable seat, high capacity wipers, an ergonomically designed joystick and steering wheel, comfort pedals to reduce leg strain, a climate package to keep your operators comfortable, and an adjustable work console and an intuitive user interface to make life easier.
