Three driveline solutions for eco-efficient lift trucks

July 4, 2018

Konecranes’ future-proof “Powered by ECOLIFTING” concept makes it possible for customers to both help the environment and save money through a reduction in the use of fossil fuels.

The real value of Konecranes equipment can be found in the small, intelligent details and cutting-edge technology that make the company’s products some of the most advanced in the world.

“We are continuously improving the environmental performance of our products, processes and services for our customers around the world. Our customers can make better choices for the environment without compromising the performance and power of their machines,” says Håkan Andersson, Product Manager, Konecranes Lift Trucks.

Included in the ECOLIFTING concept are three driveline solutions for lift trucks, all of which help to contribute to uncompromised efficiency.

  1. Due to its very short payback time, Power Drive is the most cost-efficient way to begin reducing emissions and fuel expenses. By bringing down fuel consumption by up to 15%, Power Drive saves thousands of euros annually compared to lift trucks with a normal driveline.
     
  2. Flow Drive cuts down emissions and decreases fuel consumption by up to 25% and while increasing the time spent on active operations – all with a minimal financial investment. The solution delivers concrete benefits to everyday operations – such as a precise, smooth ride, reduced noise and less cabin vibration – and a significant boost in overall productivity.
     
  3. More environmentally sustainable business practices are enabled by the evolution of the world’s first Hybrid Reach Stacker. Fully tested over 10,000 hours of commercial operation, this lift truck cuts down fuel consumption by up to 40% and benefits business, users, processes and the environment.
