A solution package to take your equipment’s safety to the next level. This package includes a number of automated safety features that will make operating your equipment even safer for your driver and other personnel working nearby.
The Automatic Engine Stop System allows the machine to automatically turn off the engine after 5 minutes of idling. This saves avoidable idling, fuel consumption, and carbon emissions, achieving up to 10% in fuel savings. It also reduces running hours on the equipment during its lifetime, extending the lifespan of components.
It helps to reduce wear and tear on tires, resulting in reduced fuel consumption. Bluetooth sensors keep the driver advised of the condition of the tires. Active care of your tires can result in a 10-40% increase in tire life and up to a 10% decrease in fuel consumption.
Knowing what’s going on behind you is critical when other personnel is present. Four rear sensors and a reversing camera relay real-time information to an in-cabin display, alerting the driver to any dangers, increasing personnel and driver safety. You can also add additional cameras on the spreaders or on the front of the machine.
Save fuel and reduce the surrounding environment's air pollution by limiting speed. By reducing or limiting the maximum speed the machine can drive, not only safety increases but also fuel consumption and unnecessary wear and tear of the equipment.
By having automatic central lubrication, you save both time and maintenance. The system assures that all grease points covered by the system get enough lubricants, and no time must be put on this in the daily inspection. Having all intended covered joints properly greased reduces the wear and tear over time on your unit.
A modular set-up containing different options that can be combined to cover any supervision system needed in a reachstacker or empty container handler:
By reducing the overall steering radius of your reachstacker you will reduce wear and tear, extending the life of your tires.
To protect your operator and machine from fire you can fit a fire suppression system to your machine. The system utilises multiple spray nozzles that release a high-pressure water mist where the fire has been detected from a re-chargeable water tank. This can be activated manually or automatically through an in-cabin temperature sensor.
To ensure that your driver is at their best when operating your equipment, you can install an Alco-lock system. This system makes sure that the driver meets alcohol blood level standards before being able to start the machine, much like a breathalyser.
Extra lighting, particularly if you operate your machine at night, as you can bring greater operational visibility and safety for personnel working on the site. You can choose additional LED working lamps on specific positions:
Knowing exactly what your fuel costs are going to be each month gives you a greater level of financial predictability, which is why Kalmar is offering a Fuel Saving Guarantee with each of its Eco Reachstackers.
