Kalmar, part of Finland’s Cargotec corporation, has introduced a new terminal tractor model for the European market.
Drawing on the brand’s 60 years of experience in terminal tractor design, the new T2 unit has been designed work in the harshest of environments, according to Kalmar.
“The key features of the new Kalmar T2 are focused on driving down costs and optimising operational performance and flexibility,” commented Chris Booth, Vice President, Terminal Tractors at Kalmar.
“The clear-view cabin is built around the driver to deliver an uninterrupted view of the working environment. This helps improve safety and awareness through panoramic visibility. All major controls are designed to fall readily to hand for smooth operation.”
With two points of access into the cabin and a flat rear access platform, the T2 is said to speed up the hooking-up process, reduce driver fatigue, improve productivity and lower operating costs.
“Improving cycle times for trailer movements is of vital importance when calculating cost of ownership. The new T2 provides optimum visibility and ease of use.
“This ensures that cycle times, machine damage and, ultimately, the cost of every trailer movement are reduced, allowing more movements per shift and greater throughput,” Booth added.
