Heavy handling Konecranes Lift Truks

Konecranes Lift Trucks has been building forklift trucks with passion since 1959

Since 1959, when its first high tonnage forklift truck was delivered, Konecranes Lift Trucks has put a great deal of effort into designing and manufacturing forklift trucks capable of getting the job done properly, whatever the activity sector in which they are used, ready to take up the challenges of the most severe operating conditions, offering the highest lifting capacities, and many other factors too.

The challenge facing the Konecranes Lift Trucks engineers is to create a forklift truck that meets the customers needs exactly, sometimes requiring a brand new solution to be designed.

The company is the world leader in smart high tonnage lifting solutions for industry, sea and river port and multimodal applications.

Aprolis distributes and provides after-sales support for Konecranes forklift trucks throughout continental France, providing national coverage to its customers.

The working environment, the climatic conditions, the needs of the operators, the loads being lifted and the lifting reach of the forklift trucks used by drivers are always different and specific. Excellence is a foundation that Konecranes applies to the design of its products, and it is the distinctive characteristic of the brand.

This excellence is seen in the durability of the equipment in the face of every test, the modern cab design and the attention to detail that characterise the high quality forklift trucks manufactured by Konecranes.

All the company’s forklift trucks are put through severe testing before they leave the production units so that your equipment always meets the severest standards.

Ease of use for operators

For the operator who spends countless hours driving a forklift truck, the major concern is not the possible return on investment or the overall performance of the fleet. Operators want to work efficiently, comfortably and safely.

Meeting operator needs

The OPTIMA cab, designed and manufactured by Konecranes Lift Trucks, gives your operators extraordinary comfort and visibility. You can personalise both the cab and the truck so that they meet your specific needs and ensure that your lifting operations take place with the utmost safety.

Advanced ergonomics

All the instruments are easy to reach on the right and above the operator, helping to improve his posture and ensure that his position is comfortable during the operations.

Feel free to ask us to add additional equipment if you need it, like control buttons which can be incorporated during the design of the instrumentation.

Solutions for comfort

The operator benefits from all the comfort possible by means of an excellent suspended seat, a heating and ventilation system and air-conditioning. As an option, ergonomic control solutions help to boost the productivity of your operators.

Customised configurations

Forklift trucks face very different challenges depending on the applications they are required to deal with. Forklift trucks must be able to operate in every industry, in cable making factories, in nuclear power plants, on logistics operations for the Armed Forces, or in foundries or and the steel industry.

With optimal performance and accessories to fit every need, Konecranes forklift trucks with Aprolis service, on purchase or on long-term rental, will help you increase your operational efficiency to the utmost.

Ultrahigh visibility mast types

Whether the mast is a free-lift model or not, the design of masts with the free-lift cylinders outside the main mast uprights gives the operator absolute visibility of the loads he is handling.
It avoids operating losses caused by breakage of fragile goods, in particular in the wood industry, the drinks industry and empty drinking glasses.
