Kalmar RT’s RT022 forklift finds success with U.S. Department of Defense, Africa-based NGOs
Perkins Pacific, a leading distributor of Perkins engines and engineering solutions provider, worked closely with Kalmar Rough Terrain Center to power the Kalmar RT022, a rough terrain handler that is succeeding in extreme conditions due to its unique design and Perkins engine.
The RT022 Light Capacity Rough Terrain Forklift (LCRTF) is built to move materials at sites where there is minimal or often destroyed infrastructure and typically difficult weather conditions. Constructed with a compact design, fourteen inch ground clearance and ability to operate in up to 36 inches of water for material handling in harsh environments, the LCRTF needed a highly-reliable and efficient engine. Perkins Pacific worked closely with Kalmar RT to supply and engineer 1100 Series engines that provide the LCRTF with better uptime, lower cost of ownership and unparalleled performance.
