With a lift capacity of 3 to 8 containers high, the Konecranes Empty Container Handlers are designed with smart load-sensing hydraulics that can allocate lift power where needed, when needed. The powerful 7 litre, 180 kW, 1050 Nm engine provides the Container Handler with optimal torque at low revs, as well as reduced fuel consumption, emissions, and noise levels. When more lifting capacity is needed, easily carry two containers at a time with the double stacking model, to increase overall efficiency within the workplace.

Manoeuvring the Empty Container Handler is smooth and precise, and brakes have continuous oil cooling, ensuring full braking power is available in any situation. Hoses and cables are kept to a minimum on the wide, heavy duty mast to reduce maintenance costs and to maximise uptime.

A modern cabin makes operating the Empty container handler safer and comfortable for the operator. From enhanced visibility from each side of the cabin, to ergonomic and smooth controls with a 7-inch touch screen that provides full truck monitoring. These container handlers are suited for use in terminals, transport and logistics, ports, intermodal, and much more.

Operator Comfort
Convenient Cabin

Spacious legroom, suspension seat, air conditioning, cabin heating and ventilation, the modern OPTIMA cabin ensures maximum comfort when taking on the job.

Enhanced Visibility

A panorama roof window, large lowered windows with no corner posts lead to superior visibility for the operator.

Easy Controls

Load sensing technology enables very precise and smooth control of the levers at every point of the operation. The 7-inch touch screen provides full monitoring of the container handler.

Productivity & Performance
Fast Lifting and Lowering

These empty container handlers can lift up to 8 containers high very quickly and safely, making them highly productive in the workplace.

Strong Chassis

The heavy duty box-type chassis strengthens the lift mast and tilt cylinder offering higher lifting capacity without reductions at high lift heights. This intelligent and durable frame design delivers one of the strongest chassis on the market, which is the foundation of Konecranes long-lasting high performance.

Lower Cost
Load Sensing Hydraulics

The load sensing hydraulic system with variable piston pumps is a smart design which ensures an optimum balance between the engine power and hydraulic demand. This system works to effectively reduce wear on the engine, gearbox and hydraulics, as well as minimises fuel consumption and the impact on the environment.

Powerful Engine

The powerful engine provides the container handler extra high torque at low revs, as well as reduce fuel consumption and noise levels. These certified low emission engines are better for the environment and help to reduce running costs.

Fire and Suppression System

A fire alarm and suppression system provides optimal safety for the operator. This system is automatically discharged through engine compartment sensors or can be discharged manually by the operator, either inside or outside the container handler.

NearGuard Warning System

The NearGuard warning system utilises Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to minimise collisions with obstacles and personnel, by warning operators ahead of time to imminent collisions, creating a safer work environment.

Servicing & Maintenance
EMC Master

Konecranes intelligent Electronic Machine Control (EMC), viewed through a 7” touch screen display, provides the forklift operator real-time information on the trucks performance. It includes full truck monitoring, ECO-drive and fuel management, productivity counter management and can even log alarm and error data.

Fleet Maintenance

Truconnect® enables you to remotely monitor and track the real usage of your lift trucks including hours, fuel consumption, travelling distance and speed, safety alerts and much more. This is a great tool for scheduling forklift maintenance actions and consequently improving the fleet’s uptime. Learn more about the Truconnect fleet management solution.
