New Konecranes systems generate fuel savings

Konecranes has launched three driveline solutions for its lift truck range which can result in fuel savings of up to 40%.

Released under the ‘Ecolifting’ concept, the new Power Drive system can generate up to 15% fuel savings, the new Flow Drive system can generate up to 25% fuel savings, and the Hybrid Drive solution can offer up to 40% fuel savings.

Håkan Andersson, product manager at Konecranes Lift Trucks, said: “Our customers can make better choices for the environment without compromising the performance and power of their machines.”

The Hybrid Drive has been incorporated in the world’s first hybrid reach stacker, which has been tested in over 10,000 hours of commercial operation.

The Power Drive system can save “thousands of euros annually” compared to normal driveline-powered lift trucks while also retaining the same power, according to Konecranes.

Flow Drive offers fuel and emissions cuts while also providing a smoother ride.
