Kalmar launches light forklift

Kalmar has launched the DCF50-90 forklift truck, the latest in its range of 5-9 tonne capacity machines.

It is the first in the new generation of light machines to be equipped with an SCR traction control system. Along with the new 77kW and 85kW Agco engines, they combine to reduce fuel consumption and meet the latest EU (Stage IIIB, Tier 4i) emission requirements.

The DCF50-90 is targeted at customers who need industrial handling capabilities in tough applications, such as wood, pulp, paper or the steel industry.

Thomas Malmborg, vice president for Kalmar Forklift Trucks said: “We have focused our attention on features that enhance driver comfort and reduce fatigue, on long shifts and in all conditions.
