Crown launches mid-level order pickers

Crown has launched four models of mid-level order picker capable of lifting up to 1,000 kg and travelling at speeds of up to 10.5 kph.

The LP 3500 Series includes models with either fixed forks or auxiliary lifting forks. All models in the new series are capable of lifting the operator platform to a height of 1,800 mm, handling heavy loads and travelling at elevation .

Operators can raise or lower the platforms on the trucks while they are driving along. For added safety, the truck’s speed adjusts automatically in proportion to platform height.

In applications where trucks are constantly travelling just a short distance between order-picking stations, warehouse managers can opt to fit the truck controls on the fork side of the platform.
