The Kalmar Essential Forklift Range, DCG100-180T, gives you everything you expect from Kalmar: a quality build, high levels of availability, and operational efficiency, for a great price. Built on our proven platform, you can expect a robust and reliable forklift that is able to handle your toughest loads. The Kalmar Essential Forklift Range will exceed your expectations in every way.

Kalmar quality for all.

A great price shouldn’t mean compromising on quality, which is why our new range of Essential Forklifts give you everything you expect from Kalmar. A forklift built on a tried and tested, reliable and robust platform that is made for the most demanding applications. With lifting capacities from 22,000-40,000 lbs, they are ideal for containers, steel, and wood.

A proven platform.

We know that availability and reliability are key to your operational success, so we have built our new range of Essential Forklifts on our latest platform, which has already been used in more than 10,000 Kalmar machines.  You will benefit from a highly stable and durable chassis, common electrical systems for easy troubleshooting, and a color display screen for improved diagnostics.

A wide range of choices.

Our new Essential Forklift Range gives you plenty of choice, so you can specify a machine that is suited to your exact needs. You get a choice of:

  • 7 different lifting capacities
  • 3 different masts
  • 3 different cabs
  • 2 different mounting heights
  • 2 different engines with 2 different ratings.

The choice is yours:

Lifting: You get a choice of lifting capacities from 22,000–40,000 lbs. You also get a choice of load centering positions, depending on the lifting capacity chosen.

Essential Cab: You get three different cabs to choose from:

a fully enclosed cab, with air-conditioning as an option; a partially enclosed cab; or a fully open cab. Mounting heights: There are two different mounting positions for the Essential Cab.

You can either mount the cab in the standard position or, for increased visibility, mount the cab 11.8" (300 mm) higher. Engines: You have a choice of two highly efficient engines with two different ratings: the new Volvo 141 hp (105 kW) or the reliable Volvo 173 hp (129 kW).

Both come with a choice of ratings, compliant with either EPA Tier 4 Final or Tier 3 emissions standards. Support You might also choose one of our four Kalmar Care service contracts to maintain your machine, or consider Kalmar Genuine Parts. Kalmar Genuine Parts are high-quality parts that will always meet or even exceed the manufacturer's standards, ensuring that you get the right part, first time.
