Market launch – Crown focuses on real performance
Crown has launched the ESR 1000 Series reach trucks. The new forklifts are available with lift heights of up to 13560 millimetres, load capacities of up to two tonnes and can optionally be configured to use lithium-ion batteries. Moreover, the new reach truck series includes a variety of innovations: For example, mast-lowering speeds can be doubled by opting for Crown’s Xpress LowerTM technology. Furthermore, the newly-developed Gena® operating system provides the latest ESR 1000 Series with advanced productivity, safety, personalisation and management features as standard. Crown’s preferred approach to optimising real productivity and performance is to help make material handling at our customers’ operations easier, safer and more cost-effective.
Crown has launched its new Gena® operating system in parallel with the new ESR 1000 Series reach trucks. Thanks to the Gena system and its built-in InfoLink® connectivity, future generations of Crown forklifts will come with advanced productivity, safety, personalisation management features as standard.
Crown launched a new compact and agile double stacker, the DS 3040. Manoeuvrable yet powerful, the new forklift complements Crown’s popular DT Series of double stackers. With a load capacity of up to two tonnes and lift heights of up to 2300 millimetres, the new pedestrian double stacker is primarily designed for use in confined retail or warehouse environments. Its small turning radius, compact size and high load capacity make it highly suitable for transporting and handling pallets at speed. It can carry up to one tonne on the wheeled load arms and one tonne on the forks in double-stacker mode.
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.
Twenty years ago, Crown launched a revolutionary multipurpose vehicle that has swiftly replaced ladders in all kinds of applications. Often copied, but never equalled, the Work Assist Vehicle (WAV), better known as the Wave, is still regarded as “The Original”. First developed for picking and transporting small items, the flexible all-rounder is now used for an increasingly wide variety of tasks. The latest generation – the order picker WAV 60 – is as practical and versatile as its predecessors, yet easier to use and more powerful.
