Kalmar have recently announced that they have manufactured a new range of fully electric forklifts.


This brand-new range has lift heights of up to seven metres and nine to 11 tonnes of lift.


The company have stated that they are the first company to have manufactured fully electric trucks with this capacity range. The 13 models they have produced range from the 9-tonne ECG90-6 to the EC180-6, the range all have a width of either just over, or just under, 2.5 metres and their weights range from 17 tonnes to 22.4 tonnes.


The fully electric range boasts lower running costs that diesels, and can operate up to eight hours on full traction lead acid batteries.


With safety being a priority, the cabs of the new forklift range consist of a driving seat that can be turned 180 degrees to ensure safe manoeuvring when handling bulky loads.


The company are at the forefront of promoting cleaner, greener forklifts and cleaning up the industry as a whole. They claim to have achieved their target of simpler and easier maintenance and claim the range will be more cost effective to companies using their machinery over the long term.
