Crown Australia, a part of Crown Equipment , has introduced a new locally designed and built SHR5500 Series Crown Power Steered Walkie Reach Truck.
The SHR5500 Series Crown Power Steered Walkie Reach Truck has been designed to work effortlessly where space is limited.
All models in the SHR5500 Series Crown Power Steered Walkie Reach Truck have standard electronic power steering and brake override features, allowing the units to manoeuvre in aisles as compact as 2.4m, while the high visibility mast, carriage and redesigned reach mechanism improve load handling and positioning.
The redesigned reach mechanism provides the SHR5500 Series with the ability to perform the tasks of a counterbalanced lift truck while retaining the space saving size of a narrow aisle lift truck, plus the ease of manoeuvrability afforded by new power steering.
“Crown understands productivity comes from an ergonomic design that is reliable and durable, ultimately meeting the unique demands of each circumstance,” said product manager Rod Squires.
“We often find counterbalanced trucks used in situations where a stacker is really a better tool. This new Australian-made Series brings total flexibility to these situations.”
As with all Crown vehicles, the SHR5500 Series Crown Power Steered Walkie Reach Truck combines the engineering strength and reliability of Crown products with new technology to give customers and operators a unit that is safe, reliable and easy to use.
