New counter balanced fork lift could revolutionise material handling

At CeMAT 2011, Cargotec unveiled their new DCG90-180 range of Kalmar lift trucks, all featuring the new 'G' counterbalancing equipment.

As all the visitors to the show can testify, this new range of forklift trucks, with capacities ranging from 9-18 tonnes, and the first of Cargotec's G generation material handling range of equipment was a real eye opener.

They all promise to deliver improvements in fuel efficiency, safety, serviceability and ergonomics while reducing environmental impacts, something that many firms, wanting to show that they are green will welcome.

Starting with the new DCG90-180 range, these extensive benefits will be gradually phased across Kalmar's entire 'counterbalance fleet'. All will have the G generation feature of a revolutionary cabin design (this to be rolled out to all their forklifts, empty and loaded container handlers, reachstackers, and logstackers),

It appears that Cargotec aims to maintain and extend its market leadership in these areas so all eyes are just waiting to see what will happen next.
