Crown launches new RT 4000 Series at LOGISTICA 2015

platform-stackers-et4000Crown, one of the world’s largest material handling companies, further expands its European warehouse product range by launching its new RT 4000 Series at LOGISTICA 2015 in Utrecht, Netherlands.

The new rider pallet trucks are available as stand-up or sit-down models, both designed to help optimise operator performance and safety. Capable of travelling at up to 12.5 km/h, they have a load capacity of up to 2,000 kilograms.

Crown’s design concept focuses on delivering fast, safe and efficient performance from loading dock to warehouse aisle.  It combines agile and robust truck technology with necessary safety features, such as the patented and proven Entry Bar Safety Switch that deactivates travel when the operator places a foot outside the truck perimeter.

The new rider pallet trucks were engineered to meet the high demands of logistics applications in terms of agility, responsiveness, reliability and safety as well as being comfortable for employees.

“The RT 4000 Series combines Crown’s experience in developing and manufacturing reliable warehouse solutions with a design concept that puts operators at the heart of the development process,” explains Jim Kraimer, Director Industrial Design, Crown. “The result is a high-performance product that retains its value and helps improve productivity and safety in the warehouse while simultaneously cutting costs.”

Developed and manufactured by Crown, the AC motors fitted to the RT Series are capable of powerful acceleration at speeds of up to 12.5 km/h. The motors run longer, stay cooler and continue to operate reliably and efficiently in the toughest conditions. Pallet entry and exit rollers are fitted to the new models as standard, so the load arms can easily traverse pallet bottom boards regardless of whether the pallets are empty or full. The electronic steering system further boosts the truck’s impressive manoeuvrability and responsiveness.

 

Rider pallet trucks are sturdy and capable of withstanding extreme stresses encountered in fast-paced, high-traffic work areas, the model also has an extensive range of Work AssistTMaccessories such as beverage holders, clipboards, storage pockets and more.

Crown’s global headquarters is located in New Bremen, Ohio, USA, with regional headquarters in Australia, China, Germany and Singapore. Its employees number more than 12,000 worldwide. Crown operates a service and distribution network that exceeds 500 retail locations in over 80 countries.
