CROWN Equipment has developed a compact handle for lift trucks that simplifies control while increasing safety and productivity during operation. The X10 handle is durable, easy to service and has an interface suitable for left hand or right hand operation.
A brake override feature allows the truck to be controlled while the handle remains within the profile of the power unit. Three contact points in a thumbwheel design allow integral speed control and postural relief in both forward and reverse.
The X10 is manufactured in a vacuum die cast process that uses high-grade aluminium, and uses structural webbing for maximum strength and durability. Integrated grip points simplify steering in wet, dry or freezer environments. Grip angle is designed for a neutral wrist position.
Raise and lower controls provide tactile feedback and are positioned for blending of lift/lower and drive functions. The X10 has a sculptured control pod formed to allow for operation of the raise and lower functions while in a vertical position.
Horn buttons integrated into the grips give easy access for one or two-handed operation. The handle allows quick access to all internal components. Standard corrosion-resistant internal parts and sealed switches improve service life. Individual printed circuit boards can be replaced separately.
