Get more hours out of every day

Productivity is measuring efficiency in completing tasks; for a company, this means getting all the important things done consistently, each day, maintaining a steady and average speed. Productivity is a critical determinant of cost efficiency.

Companies are constantly looking for ways to improve quality, reduce downtime, and increase inputs of labour, materials, energy, and purchased services. Simple changes to operating methods or processes can increase productivity.

We know that your lift trucks have to be operational to keep your business running. With our productivity upgrade packages, we ensure that your trucks get more work done during any given day. Together, our aftersales solutions enable you to increase productivity by avoiding unnecessary downtime and extending the expected lifetime of every lift truck. A proactive approach that increases profitability today and in the long run.

This is the reason why, Konecranes has developed four upgrades to help you increase the performance and productivity of your fleet. Simple upgrades that can grant a major control on operations.


Productivity issues?

Below are only some examples of our upgrades related to productivity. More are coming on the pipeline; this is just the beginning. Contact your nearest Konecranes lift trucks distributor and we’ll help you get more out of every day’s work.


Lifetime Advantage_engine shutdown_image

Engine shutdown software upgrade - avoid unexpected downtime 

Enable the engine shutdown extra function and let the control system act on the engine temperature and oil pressure. 
This upgrade solution notifies the operator through a pop-up message on the MD4’s display when the engine temperature is too high, or the engine oil pressure is too low, giving the operator the possibility to select between turning off the engine or keep it running.

Lifetime Advantage_Height indicator_image

Height indicator - optimize operation time and increase productivity

Depending on configuration settings, different actions can be triggered when the mast height reaches the set limit: a pop-up window on display, a buzzer alarm or prohibit further lifting.

Engine air precleaner_image

Engine air precleaner - Prolong your engine life

Mounted above the standard air filter, the Engine air precleaner is a double filtration that reduces the downtime needed to replace filters and extends the life of the engine by keeping it free of micro-abrasive dust.

Konecranes_productivity_Static weighing system

Static weighing system - Improve efficiency and productivity by letting your reach stacker do the weighing

Verified container weight is becoming a must in many countries, before loading a container onto the vessel or means of transport.

Handle the daily operations in a more efficient way with the complete set of data registered directly in the Terminal Operations System (TOS) or customer portal. The operation is very easy: just stand still for around 5 secs and tab a button on your MD4 screen to link the weight to that container ID. 

Konecranes_Productivity_Hydraulic pump

Hydraulic pump upgrade 2x105cc - Increase your lift truck operation time

Increase the operation speed of lifting, extending, retracting and  maneouvre of your reach stacker by upgrading the existent hydraulic pump configuration from 105cc+75cc to 2x105cc. This upgrade is a direct replacement and it's available for Konecranes Liftace reach stackers and TCE5 with suitable configuration.

KC_Hydraulic Long Life

Hydraulic oil lifetime - anymore worried about wasting oil

With the installation of the new Hydraulic Long-Life Filter, you will not have to worry about changing the hydraulic oil so often.

This filter is able to extend the life of the oil up to 12,000 working hours, leading to less downtime in your operations, cost saving and eco-efficient contribution to the environment with less waste.
KC_Spreader Kit

Minimize the risk of unexpected service break

With the Spreader Kit 5000 you can now schedule your maintenance every 5000 working hours, avoiding sudden productivity drops and downtime, accident due to twistlock fatigue, reducing the repairing time as well for worn pads.

Having replacements ready makes your maintenance break shorter than ever.
KC_Tire Saver

Longer life for your tires - when manoeuvring areas are not an issue

In case narrow spaces are not something you need to worry about, the Tire Saver solution is the perfect fit for your truck and business. By limiting the steering cylinder stroke, the kit installed increases the turning radius of your lift truck but granting a much longer life for your tires.

Maintain performance safety - upgrade your Control System

Replacing your old and now obsolete control system has never been so easy. The new Control System upgrade from MDL2 to MD4 is the state-of-the-art technology and hardware that is now mounted on all brand-new equipment. Upgrade today!
