Breakbulk material handling with a tilt and a shake.

Kalmar reachstackers are well known for handling a large range of fully laden containers in terminals around the world and have earned a reputation for their reliability and versatility. It is this versatility, which enables them to be built to your exact specifications to handle your bulky and heavy goods requirements.

Kalmar reachstackers with specialist tilting container spreaders can handle bulk loads in 20', 30' and, for the first time, 40' containers, with precision and safety. The 55-degrees fully tilting spreader can unload containers in either the sideway or lengthwise direction.

Furthermore, from the cabin, the operator has three different unloading options:

  • Container doors holder;
  • Container hatch opener;
  • Container shaker to get out the stuck loads due to compression, moisture or frost.
