Konecranes launches three-driveline concept for lift trucks
Power drive, flow drive, and hybrid drive offer different amounts of fuel savings
Konecranes has launched Ecolifting, a concept including three driveline solutions for lift trucks: power drive, offering up to 15% fuel savings; flow drive, with up to 25% fuel savings; and hybrid drive, offering up to 40% fuel savings.
Power drive is a cost-efficient way to start reducing emissions and fuel expenses, due to its very short payback time. Power Drive saves on fuel and cost, yet retains the same power. Flow drive cuts down fuel consumption and emissions while increasing the time spent on active operations with a minimal financial investment. Hybrid drive is being tested on Kone's hybrid reach stacker lift truck which has eco-efficient features to cut fuel consumption and reduce emissions.
