Electric Powered Pallet Trucks

Designed for a wide variety of pallet handling applications, Crown powered pallet trucks abound with technical details. Whether it is a pedestrian pallet truck or a ride-on model, the design is compact and ergonomic and the product is given high-performance, long-lasting design.

Smooth lifting

The monobloc forks made of 6 mm steel are connected to the lifting system by tie rods and torsion bars.
The pallet truck and its load always stay stable, even with an off-centred load.

Advanced Suspension

The platform models have a drive unit and a suspended platform together with stabilising wheels on isolation mounts, considerably reducing shocks and vibrations. The components and the driver are well-protected.

X10® handle

The control handle is made of practically unbreakable cast aluminium alloy and the handle arm is of steel. All the controls can be used right-handed or left-handed.

Ergonomics & safety

Driving assurance

The centrally positioned handle allows ergonomic operation regardless of the operator and his preferences. Its positioning has been designed to allow driving with the handle vertical without protruding beyond the frame, thus protecting hands in confined spaces.

Active safety

The models with fixed and ride-on platforms have a safety threshold bar as standard. If the driver's foot protrudes while the pallet truck is moving, the weight of the foot on the bar instantly triggers a traction cut-off and displays a message on the dashboard.

Guaranteed protection

Crown's folding side guards consist of 50 mm thick steel tubes and a strong C-clamp fastening system.
Confirmation that they will protect the operator is that they are guaranteed for the entire life of the electric pallet truck.

Electric stackers

Crown ES4000

Crown electric stackers are efficient and reliable. They are designed for easy manoeuvrability whether they are operated by a pedestrian driver or a ride-on driver mounted on the platform, for racking or lorry unloading operations.

Crown stackers embody true efficiency thanks to their powerplants, compact size and unfailing stability, even at heights of 5400 m+A46m.

This equipment is essential for making the most of storage spaces, with the benefits of a narrow chassis, ergonomic controls and excellent visibility of the forks. These trucks are gluttons for work and are at home in warehouses, large and mid-size stores, and factories.

Performance

Masts

Crown stacker masts consist of nested I-section steel profiles. They are combined with carefully positioned thick cross members to offer excellent carrying capacities while providing excellent visibility from floor level to the top.

Double pallet

Straddle stacker models add possibilities. Not only do these stackers offer better ground clearance, for instance for tackling ramps, but initial lift models are also capable of carrying 2 pallets at the same time to reduce the number of journeys and optimise load transfers.

ACCESS 123®

Crown’s Access 123 control system includes coded starting with customisable performance, a battery discharge indicator and on-board access to settings and diagnostics. No need for a laptop computer or service terminal. The technician navigates easily with the 4 direction buttons, greatly minimising downtime.

Order pickers

Floor-level order picking

Crown order pickers optimise the picking process. Acceleration and braking power, compact drive unit, agility on bends are all assets which facilitate picking runs. The all-round visibility is unobstructed so that the surroundings can be viewed safely, even in heavy warehouse traffic.

préparateurs de commande

 

The GPC3000 range has nothing to hide. The bottom of the chassis is made of 6 mm thick steel to protect the electrical components and the drive and stabilising wheel. The monobloc forks and lifting tie rods are reinforced. The design has been thought out to protect the operator and limit breakage and downtime.

The ideal picking system for good picking
Standard lifting

With forks from 1000 mm to 3600 mm long, picking for 1, 2 or 3 pallets at the same time is possible. With a lift of up to 240 mm height, roll-containers do not represent an obstacle.

Ergonomic lifting

The forks, measuring 1150 mm, allow picking for one pallet at a time. But with a 960 mm lift, pallet picking or transfer always take place at an ergonomic height. Additional lifting and lowering controls on the backrest (option) can be used to set the forks and the load at the desired level.

Scissor lifting

With forks measuring 2400 mm and a lift of up to 850 mm height, this scissor lifting version maintains excellent stability even when carrying two pallets each weighing 1000 kg.
Routes are thus optimised while preserving the work ergonomics and reducing musculoskeletal disorders.

Multifunction

The mast and counterbalanced version offer a host of applications:
• Ergonomic lift order picking
• Load transfer around the warehouse
• Pallet stacking on delivery docks
• Re-supply by means of a lift height of up to 4300 mm

Order picking at a height

When floor space is at a premium, you need to use height. The same thing applies to order picking. Whether the picking machines are working at the lowest levels or the highest, they must run faultlessly. Crown high reach order pickers fit the bill: the chassis and masts are stable for confident working, the motors and hydraulic systems are powerful enough to optimise productivity, visibility and comfort ensure the safety of drivers, goods and infrastructure.

1st and 2nd level

When a great variety of items has to be collected, floor storage space may sometimes be lacking. The first levels may be necessary for storage but also for picking. First and second level pickers allow the platform to be raised to 1,800 mm while maintaining a small footprint.

Great height

Designed for order picking in very narrow aisles and picking heights up to 10,600 mm, Crown's high lift pickers provide stability, exceptional visibility through the mast and top performance.
Productivity has never been more to the fore.

Reach trucks

ESR5200

The full range of Crown reach trucks benefits from the amount of thought dedicated to the performance. Whether we are talking in terms of productivity, residual capacity, ergonomics or safety, the ESR ranges address all the needs.
Get the best out of your warehouses thanks to the many technological innovations in Crown Reach Trucks.

Performance

Crown designs and builds its AC traction motor and hydraulic pump to guarantee top performance, energy savings and minimum servicing. A 38 mm high strength galvanised bearing plate is centred between the motor and the reducer to ensure high performance acceleration and braking throughout the service life of the truck.

The patented offset mast gives a wider visibility window on the right, towards the forks and the supporting wheels. With a low profile driving position console, the field of vision is widened. Driving around curves and pallet pickup operations are faster and the risks of damaging the truck, the products and the pallet racks are considerably less.

The reach carriage provides a solid base for the mast thanks to a 20 mm thick steel plate reducing forward deflection, sealed high-strength main roller bearings with greasers, adjustable side guide rollers for play-free lateral guidance and adjustable rear rollers to prevent dynamic fore-and-aft oscillations.

Upward visibility is optimal: the driver protection roof has inclined profiles, integrated positioning of hoses and chains, fork carriage with panoramic visibility and inclined upper mast cross bars. Everything has been designed for perfect positioning.

Ergonomics & safety

The range of Crown reach trucks proposes a choice of 3 types of controls:

  • fingertip controls offering different functions from one another
  • dual controls to facilitate, for instance, operation in a cold store when wearing gloves
  • multitask joystick containing all controls. Whatever your preference, all the controls are proportionally controlled and allow the combination of several functions simultaneously.

To maintain a high level of performance while maintaining safety, the smart turn control system knows whether the operator is entering or exiting a corner and adapts the acceleration and slowing in a curve.

During long spells of work, the operator must feel at ease and be comfortably installed. The cab is easily accessible by an intermediate step, leaving enough room for the head and legs. The controls and the seat come with many adjustments to adapt to different body shapes and sizes.
Storage spaces are placed in several positions so that they are always accessible for placing pens, A4 writing pads or other personal belongings.

Crown’s ESR1060 high reach truck incorporates many technologies:

  • New Gena® interface with touch screen and personalisable widgets offering clear visuals tailored to each need.
  • The patented OnTrac drive system is ideal for damp, dusty or refrigerated areas offering the means of avoiding skidding during acceleration and wheel lock on braking.
  • New D4 armrest with enhanced ergonomics.
  • Higher performing lifting rates: up to 57% faster under load and up to 48% faster when empty.
  • The Xpress Lower option doubles the mast lowering speed, allowing up to 21% better productivity to be achieved.
  • The fork tilting assistance option ensues that the load stays absolutely horizontal thanks to compensation of flexing of the mast and the carriage which automatically levels the forks.

Electric tow tractors

Crown tracteur

Based on the same chassis as the floor-level order pickers, Crown TC3000 tow tractors are as reliable as they are long lasting. They are essential for production transfer, reception or supply jobs.

High performance

The powerful three phase 4 kW AC drive motor provides driving force of up to 3250 N and a towing capacity of up to 3000 kg.
It is coupled with the eGEN regenerative brake system which uses the motor power to supply regular and long-term braking.

Easy handling

Thanks to the Access 123 integrated system, all the settings are constantly analysed in real-time. Operations are always fluid and under control.
Thanks to its compact overall size and the easy handling due to the power assisted steering, it adapts to any environment.

Comfort

Whether you are travelling a short distance or a long one, comfort is essential for safe driving. The driving platform comprises a comfortable ergonomic backrest. There are two rear handles providing outstanding hold during approach manoeuvres for hitching up tow trailers. A variety of storage means are provided for tools, personal belongings or a roll of wrapping film. The fold-down seat is adjustable (optionally) proving added comfort for long trips.

Efficiency

The hitching attachment can be set to 5 different heights, to suit the hook. Several hook models are available, adapting to the types of tow trailer hitches.

VNA trucks

Crown TSP

The Crown VNA trucks in the TSP series are unique in terms of their highly innovative design, the best visibility on the market and long-term reliability. The ideal solution for dense, optimised storage.

Performance

The Monolift™ mast, a Crown exclusive, incorporates a closed box-type design. The nested mast sections consist of heavy “I” shape steel profiles connected to one another by thick cross pieces.
This design considerably lessens oscillation while improving the stability of the operator and the load up to more than 17 m high. These are particularly essential in Very Narrow Aisles (VNA).

At heights approaching that of a 5 storey building, in aisles barely wider than the truck itself, confidence is essential for safety and productivity. That is why the TSP cab offers space with modularity and comfort.

Crown has designed and developed all the components to offer an optimum availability factor. Optimised reliability comes from the separation between the electronics and the sources of heat.
Thick steel enclosures protect the internal components while providing fast and easy access for maintenance.

Ergonomics & safety

The MoveControl™ seat swivels through 110° providing 4 driving positions: slightly to the right (-20°), facing the forks (0°), slightly to the left (60°) or fully to the left (90°). In the last position, not only is it possible to enter the platform easily, and exit from it, but also provides excellent rearward visibility, essential in blind aisles requiring as much reversing as forward driving.

The operator is provided with clear and easily legible information on the dashboard which includes coded starting, a weight indicator, a fork height indicator, a battery discharge indication, and indications about the driving method (manual or guided).
The Crown Access 123® control system includes built-in diagnostics. There is no need for a laptop computer or a service terminal, even for performance adjustments.

To optimise comfort and safety, the driver's platform has cab lighting, adjustable LED working lights, a 2 speed fan, a 12 V power supply and several storage cubbies.
