Konecranes has announced four new upgrades as part of its Lifetime Advantage program.
All four upgrades are specific solutions that can be fitted to Konecranes forklifts on customer sites. They are not service packages but are intended to improve equipment performance with the latest available technology.
"Safety and productivity are among the two most important priorities for our customers," says Johan Kårhammer, global spare parts operations manager at Konecranes Lift Trucks. "So, in this latest release, they can choose any or all of two safety and two productivity packages that can be installed on one truck, all trucks at one site, or even across a global fleet."

The updates are:
Over Head Guard: A retrofit for empty container handlers that will protect the operator from a falling object using a safety cage mounted around the cabin. The retrofit is available only for Generation B and C empty container handlers.
Roof LED Bar: A preassembled light fitting mounted on the truck's roof to make operations brighter when the surrounding area is not fully illuminated, such as at night, in shadow, or indoors. Available at different illumination levels, it can be easily fitted to any type of forklift or container handler, and controlled from the operator's dashboard inside the cabin.
Hydraulic Pump Upgrade: On Konecranes Liftace reachstackers and TCE5 models with a suitable configuration, replacing the existing 75 cc pump with a 105 cc pump increases the operational speed of lifting, extending, retracting and manoeuvring actions.
Static Weighing System: This retrofit for Generation B and C reachstackers allows operators to weigh containers by lifting them for a few seconds, then touching a button to send the measured weight to a central database, where it is linked to the container ID.
As in the past, the Konecranes global distributor network will again play a significant role in bringing the new Lifetime Advantage options to Konecranes customers around the world.
