Kalmar medium electric forklifts offer all the performance of a powerful diesel truck but without the emissions, noise or vibration. They feature the ergonomically designed EGO cabin to provide a superior driving experience, with adjustable control panels, steering wheel and seat as well as exceptional visibility.

Ian Roden, Director, BJB: “Electrically powered forklift trucks are becoming increasingly popular as a way to reduce emissions and fuel costs across a wide range of material-handling applications.
