Review: 2012 Konecranes SMV4531TB5 Reach Stacker
Konecranes SMV4531TB5: The introduction
You don’t only see forklift trucks in warehouses or factories. Aside from these worksites, ports also make use of these heavy duty equipment. But of course, they utilise empty container handlers. These lift trucks are able to haul and transport massive containers. If you’re part of those businesses, then I’m sure you’re already quite familiar with the sight. Now, it’s imperative for enterprises such as this to expand in order to keep the profits rolling in. And one way to ensure that is to invest in a reliable and high capacity reach stackers. Well, if you happen to be in search of one, then you’re in luck because I’ll be featuring the Konecranes SMV4531TB5. Don’t worry if you’re not familiar with the model. Just read on as I give you my take on this equipment.
Konecranes SMV4531TB5: Key features
This reach stacker boasts of a maximum lifting capacity of 45 tonnes. As for its engine, the SMV4531TB5 provides a variety of engines for EU stage 2/3a/3b and EPA Tier 2/3/4. This goes to show how eco-friendly this lift truck is. In addition to that, there’s an intelligent Electronic Machine Control (EMC) Master. This innovation offers full monitoring of all the essential functions and components. Then there’s the integration of the CanBus technology that enhances both engine and transmission reliability.
Konecranes incorporated smart load-sensing hydraulics in the SMV4531TB5. Basically, this system adjusts the lifting power depending on the weight of the load. Since the lift truck will only provide maximum power when you need it, it will ultimately consume less fuel. So you’re promoting fuel efficiency, as well as cost efficiency, whilst reducing emissions, too.
A key factor in increasing productivity is keeping the operator comfortable. Well, Konecranes has the answer to that with the ErgoCab. This spacious cabin offers plenty of room for both the driver and even other equipment that you might want to bring. Another thing that you need to remain concentrated in your task is visibility. And the very large windows are the perfect solution. Because of this, the company eliminated the corner posts. Even the roof cross member is very thin (but still strong). So with those design elements, you have clear sightlines. More than that, you can even customise the ErgoCab. You can select the joystick, panel, steering wheel, driver’s seat, and instrumentation that you will need.
Aside from those that I have already mentioned, there are still a number of standard features in the SMV4531TB5. One of them is the fire alarm and suppression system. There are also other safety features that you can avail of. Those include the Parking Distance Control (PDC), that comes with sensors for driving in reverse, as well as the breath analyzer. This would ensure that your operators are in the best shape and of sound mind when they work. Lastly, there’s the Camera Supervision System that you can mount as a reversing camera on the rear. Of course, these would require additional costs so don’t be hasty when availing these options.
