A vital part of your logistics, DCG180-330
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.
The sheer weight of thousands of pounds lifted each day wears the mechanics and the materials. Yet the forklift must perform flawlessly every day of the week. Reliably, productively, safely. Your forklift is a vital part of your logistics or production. In seamless interaction with a skilled operator, the forklift must meet your – and your customer’s – demands of product quality and delivery precision, throughout your terminal, factory or assembly line.

The new Kalmar DCG180-330 heavy forklift will always deliver what your operations require. With the Performance mode activated, operators will have the power necessary to go all-in at every instant and work with maximum productivity. Pushing it hard, while ensuring best-in-class fine-manoeuvring.
Our Cummins engines are powerful, yet highly fuel efficient. All engine alternatives are compliant with the Tier 4 Final emission standards.
The variable pumps automatically sense the load in every operation and adjust the oil flow accordingly, allowing for faster lifting cycles up to 40% while reducing fuel consumption. This will improve your productivity a lot depending on number of lift cycles.
Reducing lifetime costs
Purchase price is only one of many factors affecting total cost of ownership. In fact, price is a minor cost factor looking over the lifetime of your forklift.
What truly matters in the long run is cost control and operational efficiency – and that will show clearly on your bottom line.
Compared to our previous model, the new DCG180-330 uses up to 15% less fuel in standard configuration. By using the optional ECO mode you can save an additional 15%. Add Kalmar’s renowned product quality and reliability, increasing efficiency and uptime, and you see the true value of Kalmar.
