NTP Forklifts Australia are proud to be launching the new Kalmar K-Motion drive train solution into the Australian market. The ground breaking technology, embedded in the programming of the Kalmar Gloria Reachstacker, increases the efficiency and productivity of Reachstackers by improving uptime, ergonomics and safety. The machine also promises significant reductions in fuel, emissions and running costs.

The first equipment to feature the K-Motion technology is the Kalmar Gloria DRG450 Reachstacker, designed for container, intermodal and industrial handling.

Peter Trevitt, Kalmar Product Manager at NTP Forklifts Australia says “NTP are impressed with Kalmar’s long-term commitment to developing solutions that help customers meet their sustainability targets and minimise the environmental impact of their operations.”

“Our customers are under pressure to increase capacity, cut costs and improve their carbon footprint hence the attractiveness of a machine with significant fuel and emission savings.”

“We believe this new product from Kalmar is a game changer when it comes to Reachstacker design and efficiency. We have data available from the Kalmar Smartfleet fleet management system, of customers in Europe experiencing savings of up to 8 litres of diesel per hour. Over the life of the machine, these savings become very significant to your running costs”

Kalmar K-Motion's combination of hydrostatic and mechanical technologies delivers a more efficient transmission and allows for a smaller engine, reducing fuel consumption and exhaust emissions by 40%.

The launch into the Australian market, comes after a successful entry into the European market in 2015 and the more recent Asian Market in January, 2016.

The Kalmar K-Motion Solution is currently available for customer viewing and driving at NTP Forklifts Australia’s Granville, Sydney site. We look forward to showcasing the much anticipated machine to our customers.
