Electric hand pallet truck launched

Crown has released the WP 3010 Series, a more compact and economically priced package that is now available Australia-wide through Crown’s national branch network and its online store.
Designed and manufactured by Crown Europe in Roding, Germany, the WP 3010 features an AC drive motor combined with the e GEN regenerative braking system for performance, reliability, long battery life and maintenance-free braking.

The WP 3010 Series’ short (500mm) head length, fork length of up to 1150mm, built-in charger and low weight (279kg without battery) make it nimble and convenient, suitable for back-of-truck work.
Its load capacity of 1600kg, heavy-duty gearbox, robust helical gear set, optimised steel structure and high-tensile steel forks ensure it is rugged.
The WP 3010 Series also features the same cast aluminium Crown X-10 handle with easy-to-use-ergonomic controls used on the rest of the WP Series range.
Crown Equipment director, sales and marketing Craig Kenchington said the WP 3010 Series’ competitive pricing will introduce the Crown product to a whole new market segment.
“Crown has made a power pallet truck with compact dimensions, so it’s ideal for moving and positioning loads quickly and safely in confined storage spaces,” Mr Kenchington said.
“In doing so, it has also compacted the entry price of the Crown WP Series model line-up.
“This new model is perfectly at home doing kerbside deliveries, transport on truck beds as well as retail applications and even manufacturing environments,” he said.

 

Pallet trucks for small/medium-sized businesses

Jungheinrich has launched an entry-level range of pallet trucks for low-duty applications.
This new range of electric pedestrian trucks is designed for retailers, print shops, workshops or garden centers, or even small to medium-sized businesses that routinely need to move heavy individual items.
The range includes EJE M13 (1300kg) and EJE M15 (1500kg) electric pedestrian pallet trucks. The AC drive motor provides fast and efficient transport of pallets over short distances. An intelligent automatic shutoff system turns the truck off automatically after 30 minutes of non-use, conserving energy and the battery.
All trucks are fitted with a maintenance-free, three-phase AC motor and a maintenance-free gel battery with integrated charger as well as an ergonomic Jungheinrich tiller, offering fast, efficient and safe throughput, claims the manufacturer.
Moving loads in these applications can be difficult if the operator only has a conventional hand pallet truck,” says Greg McNamara, National Jungheinrich Product Manager. “The initial effort required to get the load moving, and then stopping, can be a possible OH&S risk or if not, sometimes impossible with a manual pallet truck.”
The Jungheinrich EJE M13 and EJE M15 electric pallet trucks are now available from NTP Forklifts Australia.
