Design – Overview
Kalmar DRD420–450 model S diesel trucks are of sturdy design for particularly heavy duty handling of 20-40' loaded containers. They are built around a chassis which has high strength and torsional stiffness and an extremely low centre of gravity.
The operator’s cab is provided with vibration isolation and sound insulation and offers excellent all-round visibility. There are many adjustments that can be made to the operator's driving position. The position of the seat, back support and firmness of the driving seat can be adjusted in a number of ways.
The trucks are equipped with a sliding cab. This puts the operator in an exceptional position to superwise the top lift attachment and offers excellent accessibility to the transmission and hydraulic pumps. The engine is easily accessible through a removable running board. To special order, the trucks are equipped with hydraulically powered sliding cab.
The Volvo six-cylinder turbocharged engine, combined with a four-speed gearbox with torque converter, provides smooth power whenever needed. The drive axle with hub reduction, oil-cooled hydraulic brake system and pendulum-mounted steered axle with double-acting steering cylinder satisfy very strict demands on strength and mobility when travelling on irregular surfaces. The hydraulic system is reliable and has high performance.
In addition to the Instruction Manual and the Technical Handbook, the following books are delivered with every truck. Spare parts catalogue Instruction Manual for Volvo Industrial engines.
