Konecranes Launches Power Drive, a New and More Environmentally Friendly Driveline

Konecranes Launches Power Drive, a New and More Environmentally Friendly Driveline
Danny Gill

Konecranes is now launching Power Drive for lift trucks, a driveline technology that delivers up to 25% in fuel savings – without impacting on the power of the machine.

The new system is designed to enhance fuel savings while maintaining the same performance, and offering a lighter environmental footprint. By adding a new hydraulic system configuration and optimizing the rpm in addition to a transmission with lock-up function, Konecranes has designed a system to cut the fuel consumption whilst the power and performance is unaffected. The new Power Drive delivers the same power as a conventional driveline, but with 15- to 25% less fuel usage, depending on operating environment, and with lower noise pollution.

Customers now have the option to place a Power Drive system in the new machine they order, and, as Andreas Falk Sales and Marketing Director of Konecranes Business Unit Lift Trucks points out, “Customers who take advantage of this new feature will find that savings in fuel costs will according to our estimates have paid for the Power Drive in about 6 months or less.”
