Crown elec­tric pal­let truck

Farms & Farm Machinery - - Contents -

Crown Equipment has boosted its pal­let truck line-up with an eco­nom­i­cal yet strong-per­form­ing new model.

The WP 3010 Se­ries fea­tures all the Crown WP Se­ries qual­ity hall­marks in a more com­pact and eco­nom­i­cally priced pack­age and is now avail­able Aus­tralia-wide through Crown’s na­tional branch net­work and its on­line store.

De­signed and man­u­fac­tured by Crown Eu­rope in Rod­ing, Ger­many, the WP 3010 fea­tures an AC drive mo­tor com­bined with the e-GEN re­gen­er­a­tive brak­ing sys­tem for per­for­mance, re­li­a­bil­ity, long bat­tery life and main­te­nance-free brak­ing.

The WP 3010 Se­ries’ short (500mm) head length, fork length of up to 1150mm, built-in charger and low weight (279kg with­out bat­tery) make it nim­ble and con­ve­nient, per­fect for back-oftruck work. How­ever, its load ca­pac­ity of 1600kg, heavy-duty gear­box, ro­bust he­li­cal gear set, op­ti­mised steel struc­ture and high-ten­sile steel forks mean it is just as rugged.

The WP 3010 Se­ries also fea­tures the same cast alu­minium Crown X-10 han­dle with easy-to-use er­gonomic con­trols used on the rest of the WP Se­ries range.

Crown Equipment di­rec­tor – sales and mar­ket­ing Craig Kench­ing­ton says the WP 3010 Se­ries’ com­pet­i­tive pric­ing will bring Crown qual­ity to a whole new mar­ket seg­ment.

“Crown has made a power pal­let truck with com­pact di­men­sions, so it’s ideal for mov­ing and po­si­tion­ing loads quickly and safely in con­fined stor­age spa­ces,” he says.

“In do­ing so, it has also com­pacted the en­try price of the Crown WP Se­ries model line-up.

“It means that you no longer need to sac­ri­fice qual­ity, longevity and er­gonomics to have an af­ford­able power pal­let truck. This new model is per­fectly at home do­ing kerb­side de­liv­er­ies, trans­port on truck beds as well as re­tail ap­pli­ca­tions and even man­u­fac­tur­ing en­vi­ron­ments.”

The new model launch co­in­cides with Crown again earn­ing the pres­ti­gious iF De­sign Award from iF In­ter­na­tional Fo­rum De­sign.

Since 1962, Crown has re­ceived more than 100 awards from in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned de­sign in­sti­tu­tions and as­so­ci­a­tions. This is Crown’s 30th iF De­sign Award.

“The WP 3010 com­pact pal­let truck is the smart so­lu­tion for a wide range of tasks – es­pe­cially in the food re­tail, bev­er­age and lo­gis­tics sec­tors,” Crown di­rec­tor of in­dus­trial de­sign Jim Kraimer says. “Ul­ti­mately, this agile pow­er­house is all about speed­ing up goods turnover and en­hanc­ing pro­duc­tiv­ity while min­imis­ing the costs in­volved.

“The fact that our work is recog­nised by well-known de­sign pro­fes­sion­als gives us yet an­other in­cen­tive to con­tinue with our suc­cess­ful ap­proach to de­sign.”
