Kalmar Heavy Forklifts: DCG250

No chain is stronger than its weakest link, as the saying goes. Nothing could be more true when it comes to managing heavy or bulky components between the key stages of the logistic value chain. On or off ships or trains. Between the foundry and the factory. From assembly to transportation.

Prioritizing safety and operator ergonomics

Our EGO cabin offers the ultimate in ergonomics and safety. Numerous electronically operated adjustments allow the operator to tailor his workplace. The curved windows, which greatly improve visibility, have already become a classic with Kalmar.

The wheel is tiltable sideways, allowing the operator to temporarily change his visual angle, to see around bulky load in front of him. A new 300 mm lower carriage, available with the DCG180–250 versions, further improves visibility in the forward direction.
