A forklift built for efficiency

You get the choice of two different Volvo engines, including a new smaller yet highly efficient 141hp version. The engines are compliant with Tier 4 Final emissions standards and are combined with a highly efficient gearbox and drive axle. Our gear pumps are extremely reliable, easy to service and come in three different capacities, depending on the size of your forklift.

Introducing the new Essential cabin

The Kalmar Essential cabin has everything your drivers need to operate at their best. The well-designed, spacious cabin offers great visibility both forward and backward. You get an adjustable seat, power-assisted steering, and easy lift operation with control levers or an optional joy stick. Keeping your drivers comfortable and in full control.
