Save costs on repairs and replacement parts
Crown is now offering a lifetime guarantee on the folding quick-exit side restraints on its tiller-guided forklift trucks. This guarantee, which covers spare parts and labour for repair or replacement of side restraints and mounting clips for the original owner, makes damage billing for these parts a thing of the past. The guarantee is immediately valid for all Crown trucks with side restraints, namely the WT Series platform pallet trucks, the ET Series platform stackers and the DT Series double stackers.
Crown has received another GOOD DESIGN Award from the „Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design“ and the „European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies“ in recognition of its WP 3010 electric pallet truck. According to the prestigious jury, the pallet truck sets a new benchmark for product quality and purposeful design making lifting and moving heavy pallets easier than ever before. As a result the pallet truck delivers lower cost of ownership and more long-term value for customers. Along with the iF Design Award and the International Design Excellence Award (IDEA), this is the third design award for the WP 3010.
