Kalmar Terminal Tractors aren’t built for beauty. Like other taskdriven and designed tools, they’re built to do a job–they’re built to move trailers. In fact, the unique look of our trailer spotters is an intentional part of the overall design that makes trailer moving faster, more efficient and more productive than other methods you can choose…
Easy entry, easy exit.
Operators gain easy entry or exit through the rear sliding door or driver-side door. Once on board, they don’t have to dismount until the job is done–they can complete the entire engage/move/disengage process from the tractor cab and deck.
Visibility is key.
The Kalmar Terminal Tractor cab provides superior operator visibility in all directions. The large windows and oversized outboard mirrors give operators full perspective when maneuvering with or without trailers.
Ergonomics mean easy operability.
The Kalmar spotter cab provides a comfortable environment (warm or cold, day or night); cockpit-style controls in easy reach; and flat, uncluttered floor space that allow operators to avoid fatigue and increase productivity.
Power, maneuverability, adaptability.
With its short wheelbase; high-torque, low horsepower diesel engine; and low rear axle ratio, our terminal tractor offers the best of all worlds–precise maneuverability, on-demand pulling power, and low operating costs. Plus, Kalmar spotters can work in all types of yards; move trailers of various sizes; and, move trailers with varying king pin settings and heights.
