Masted container handlers

It is all about productivity and speed 

The pressure on today’s container terminals is exceeding the wildest expectations. To increase terminal profits under these circumstances, you have to increase productivity. One important factor is driver performance.

Kalmar has long been known for leading the race in ergonomics, and Kalmar's masted container handlers are no exception. Equipped with our proven Spirit Delta cabin, our masted container handlers are well known for their high comfort and excellent visibility.

Kalmar’s masted equipment for handling loaded and empty container handlers is available in a wide range of capacities and wheelbases to suit your needs. 



The DCT80–90 is the simplified version in the empty container handling range, offering safe container handling with a high level of cost-efficiency, together with Kalmar's renowned quality.

Loaded container handlers

Loaded container handlers

Our heavy-duty DCF-series loaded container handlers have been developed exclusively for ports and terminals, where productivity and reliable, smooth operation are a must. 

Empty container handlers

Empty container handlers

Our range of empty container handlers delivers market-leading strength and stability to ensure precise yet straightforward positioning of containers. The flexible design includes side spreaders for twist-lock (single stacking) or hook (double stacking) handling. Every single element – the lifting mast (also known as the boom), chassis, and side spreader – is designed for maximum strength and stability. We provide three basic capacities of 17,600 lbs, 19,800 lbs. or 22,000 lbs., for a total stacking height of up to 8+1 containers.
