Kalmar launched a new rough terrain lift truck specifically for challenging outdoor
This new lift truck is designed to work in industries with heavy loads and rough environments like the lumber, pipe handling, recycling, and precast industries. The Big Wheel series model DCG140-6 is available in either 22,000 or 31,000 lb. capacity.
The new “Big Wheel” forklifts are technologically innovative when it comes to safety and performance. Safety and performance are Kalmar’s top priority since both ensure an increase in productivity in applications that call for reliability, traction, ground clearance and stability.
The Kalmar Big Wheel features:
• A lowered counterweight for increased stability of the forklift
• Heavy duty mast for tough applications
• Large tires for increased traction and smoother ride
• High ground clearance for uneven, rough terrain
• Excellent visibility in all directions in a spacious EGO operator’s cabin
Kalmar’s rough terrain design is ideal to overcome issues for regular forklifts such as pot holes, railroad tracks, slippery and muddy conditions as well as steep grades. The Big Wheel won’t let any of these obstacles slow down the job.
Under the Hood:
Kalmar is using a Cummins QSB6.7 six cylinder engine with a turbo intercooler in the Big Wheel models to ensure extensive run time and quality performance. This engine is going to take the Kalmar Big Wheel to a whole new level of power, versatility, and emissions control. The Cummins QSB6.7 is a tier three engine that maintains a compact and simple installation that provides premium performance to all applications. This engine is equipped with a charge air cooling and turbocharging system for strong performance and versatility. The electronic controls provide the Kalmar Big Wheel with reliability and durability for long maintenance intervals.
The Big Wheel models are low exhaust emission models with powerful load sensing pumps to boost lifting productivity and lower fuel consumption. This efficient system allows considerable fuel savings up to 10% without reducing capacity of the forklift.
Easy Service and Maintenance:
The Kalmar Big Wheel models have easily accessible service and maintenance points contributing to the ease of service to the engine. The Kalmar Big Wheel’s are reliable and stable for any application thrown its way.
