Crown launches new rider pallet trucks

Crown is expanding its European warehouse product range with the new RT 4000 Series of rider pallet trucks.

The trucks are available as stand-up or sit-down models,and are capable of travelling at up to 12.5 km/h. They have a load capacity of up to 2,000 kilograms.

“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,” said 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.”

In the stand-up model, ride comfort is enhanced by a suspended floorboard that reduces shocks from dock boards and rough floors, plus a wraparound, soft-foam lean pad. The stand-up model can also be configured with right-hand or left-hand steering. The sit-down version is fitted with a low entry step for convenient entry and exit.
