The new ESR5000 series from Crown Equipment has includes a new design to increase efficiency and safety in tight spaces, such as narrow aisles.
Operators can now choose the right set of hydraulic controls for their application from a selection of multitask, fingertip-operated or dual-lever options. Each driver can also choose whether the infinitely adjustable electronic steering rotates 180° or 360°.
To maximise performance through ergonomics, Crown Equipment started with the operator seat. The ESR 5000 is fitted with an ergonomic suspension seat with built-in controls. Placed within the cabin is an easy-reach desktop with an integrated clipboard and many storage areas. There is also a Work Assist tubular mount for data terminals and scanners.
To perform well, operators need a broad, unimpeded field of vision at all times. All ESR 5000 models are fitted with Crown Equipment’s offset mast and patented overhead guard, giving operators a view of the vehicle and surrounding area.
Crown Equipment has also addressed uptime in the ESR5000 series, equipping all models with their internally developed Access 123TM technology that monitors and adjusts key vehicle systems and simplifies troubleshooting.
The InfoPointTM maintenance system means that service engineers don’t spend hours fiddling with laptops or handsets – faults are pinpointed instantly and components can be tested right then and there.
Because Crown Equipment designs and manufactures up to 85% of the components used in its electric lift trucks, including traction and hydraulic pump motors, each component is optimised to suit the characteristics of each truck.
All ESR 5000 models can be fitted with options to meet specific application needs: rack height selection, load recognition system, tilt position assistance and mast- or fork-mounted camera systems.
Extras such as drink holders, a bin, reading lights, or scan gun holders are also available.
