These machines can be delivered with a spreader or hook, making them suitable for handling containers or for industrial applications such as handling steel coils. There is a choice of three efficient driveline combinations and either EU3/Tier 3 or Tier 4/EU 4F compliant emissions standard engines.
The Kalmar Essential range of empty container handlers (DCU80-100) offers a choice of three different lifting capacities—8.8, 9.9, and 11 tons—and four different mast heights each with different stacking capabilities. Just as with Essential reachstackers, customers can select from three driveline combinations and compliant emissions standard engines. All Essential range reachstackers and empty container handlers come fitted with a load sensing hydraulic system, which measures the load and applies the right amount of power to move it efficiently.
The Essential range of forklifts (DCG100-180T) comprises 12 models, with capacities ranging from 10 to 18 tons that can be customised with a variety of power, mast, cabin and safety options. They can be used for a diverse range of demanding applications including container, steel and wood handling.

The new Essential cabin improves driver comfort and safety with excellent all-round visibility, power steering and easy lift operation as well as non-slip stairs and handrails.
All new Kalmar machines will be compatible with Kalmar SmartFleet, a powerful equipment monitoring and optimisation tool that makes it easy to analyse performance data, helps to further improve efficiency and productivity.
