Crown Australia has introduced a new, locally designed and built SHR5500 Series Crown Power Steered Walkie Reach Truck. The SHR5500 Series is the latest release in the company’s history of developing and manufacturing equipment in Australia for Australian conditions that spans more than 40 years.
This entirely new series has been designed to work effortlessly where space is limited.
All models in the series 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 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.
To mark the introduction of the SHR5500 Series, Crown is offering obligation-free trials of this new unit. Contact Crown Equipment on (02) 8788 0000.
