|NEW BREMEN, Ohio (December 14, 2007) — When you think about a dedicated pallet mover, you think versatility, productivity, operator comfort and safety. Crown Equipment Corporation designed its PR 4500 Series Pallet Rider to perform in a variety of material handling applications. The versatility of the PR 4500 can be seen on the dock, during long and short hauls, and on the manufacturing shop floor. Its features showcase Crown’s commitment to use technology to improve productivity, operator comfort and safety.
“When you need a dedicated pallet mover, the PR 4500 Series performs this task more productively and efficiently than other products,” said Product Manager Rod Squires. “The engineering and design behind the PR 4500 Series provides a pallet rider truck that boosts productivity by improving operator comfort and incorporating the latest Crown Technovations to further enhance performance and safety.”
Crown’s ergonomically designed operator compartment is enhanced with a new suspended floorboard and comfortable floor mat. These features reduce the shock that results from driving over dock plates and rough floors. The Variable Side Stance design positions the operator for maximum effectiveness and forward/reverse visibility during traveling and load handling functions. In addition, power steering contributes to better maneuverability and improved operator comfort.
The Crown PR 4500 Series includes Technovations, the fusion of technology and innovation, like Access 1 2 3® Comprehensive System Control and e-GEN™ Braking. Access 1 2 3 technology continuously monitors system inputs and outputs, keeping the PR 4500 Series functioning at an optimal level. Crown’s exclusive e-GEN Braking works with the Crown-built AC traction motor to provide reliable, maintenance-free, frictionless braking for the life of the truck.
The PR 4500 Series also comes equipped with Crown’s exclusive InfoPoint® System which simplifies maintenance by providing detailed maps, making it easy to locate and identify components throughout the truck. Additionally, Crown offers specific structural enhancements and uses heavy-duty steel to ensure long-lasting performance, especially where costly damages could occur.
