LOGISTIC-SPECIFIC DESIGN MAKES IT THE RIGHT TOOL

Why are
Kalmar
Terminal Tractors
the top-selling
trailer spotters
in North America?
It’s simple.
Our trucks deliver our

promise when they see it.

Logistic-specific design
There’s nothing like having the right tool
for the job. And, this tool is built for one
job—moving trailers, quickly and
efficiently and at less cost to you.
Kalmar Terminal Tractors are unique in
design, appearance and function.
Ergonomics, comfort & control
Legacy of performance
Kalmar Terminal Tractors are born from a
long history of design, manufacturing and
service established by Ottawa Truck over
50 years ago. With the added expertise
and resources of Kalmar, the legacy of
innovation and superior terminal tractor
performance continues.
Quality, reliability, serviceability
After-sale service & support
Quality...in every sense of the word
From engineering to ergonomics to lug
nuts to delivery, every process and part
of a Kalmar Terminal Tractor is evaluated
and integrated with quality in mind. We
have confidence in every truck that
comes off the line and we want you to
feel confident, too.
Reliability and durability...everybody
talks about them, we live them
We know you approach an investment
in capital equipment as a long-term
proposition. So do we. Our spotters are
designed and tested to perform under
heavy use—so you can rely on them
when you need them most. And, you can
rely on us after the sale. After all, we’re a
part of the promise as well.
Serviceability...in your shop or
someone else’s
Good tools take reasonable care to reach
their full service life. Whether you do the
maintenance or it’s performed by someone else, things are much easier when
ease-of-serviceability is built in. It’s all
part of the grand plan...the grand plan
to make things easy for you.
We have the largest Dealer Network in the Industry.
Our commitment to customers goes well beyond the purchase of a Kalmar Terminal Tractor. Before and after you
consider investing in our equipment, we offer expert support to help you make the right decisions for your operation.
And, our dealer network is backed by a state-of-the-art parts distribution system and technical support resources
second-to-none. We’re here to help you keep your Kalmar trailer spotter on the move.
Operator satisfaction...the true
measure of Kalmar Terminal Tractors
The fact is, we can design, innovate and
manufacture all the bells and whistles
that might make your world go round.
But, when it comes to building the topselling terminal tractor, the true measure
of our efforts is operator satisfaction.
They tell it like it is because, from a
comfort and productivity standpoint,
they know what a good truck is all about.
They know what it takes to move tons of
trailered cargo over the length of a day.
They know why Kalmar Terminal Tractors
are the #1 selling trailer spotters in
North America.

Align tractor
and fifth wheel
with trailer

Engage trailer.
No need to
dismount or
raise trailer
landing gear—
simply step out

and hook up
air lines.
Raise trailer
with hydraulic
fifth wheel.
Move trailer to

Lower trailer,

On average, a driver using
a Kalmar Terminal Tractor
can move three trailers
in the time it takes to
move a trailer using an
over-the-road tractor.
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 floorspace 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 manueverability, 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.
Large windows located on all sides of cab
are positioned to provide maximum
field-of-view in all directions.
Build
Raised cab option provides
stand-up headroom and easy
entry or exit from the rear door.
Long, large-diameter hand rails
make mounting and dismounting
easier and safer.
Hydraulic fifth wheel eliminates the
need to raise or lower trailer landing
gear and is controlled by simple,
single-lever action in the cab.
Cockpit-style interior puts precise
control at operator fingertips.
Sliding rear door provides
quick entry/exit and access
to rear deck for hook-up.
Coiled air lines are strategically mounted
and stored for fast,efficient connect/
disconnect with trailers. (Storage holders
are optional.)
