Konecranes introduces new forklift innovations

Konecranes has expanded its range of forklifts with two new technical innovations: reach stackers, which can handle larger empty containers, and spreaders with a larger capacity.

Not all containers are fully loaded when crammed for transport, or completely empty when they reach their destination. As a result, Konecranes has launched the SMV 128 TC6 reach stacker, which can handle half-loaded and empty containers weighing up to 12 tons. The new technology allows customers to safely and efficiently handle a wider range of lighter boxes.

To reduce CO2 emissions, intermodal reach stackers are offered with two Konecranes Ecolifting variants.

First, Flow Drive uses a new type of hydro-mechanical variable transmission and a unique engine compartment design to reduce CO2, fuel consumption and costs by up to 25%.

According to Konecranes, all new reachstackers can run on HVO100, a 100% renewable and fossil-free chemical replica of ordinary diesel that can reduce CO2 emissions from fossil sources by up to 90%.
