Crown Launches Low-Cost, High Performance European Electric Pallet Truck in SEA

09-07-2018

Singapore (June 27, 2018 ) -Crown Equipment has boosted its pallet truck line-up with an economical yet strong performing new model. 

The WP 3010 Series features all the Crown WP Series quality hallmarks in a more compact and economically priced package and is now available Southeast Asia through Crown’s national branch network. 

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, perfect for back-of-truck work.  

However, its load capacity of 1600kg, heavy-duty gearbox, robust helical gear set, optimised steel structure and high-tensile steel forks mean it is just as rugged. 

The WP 3010 Series also features the same cast aluminium Crown X-10® handle with easy-to-useergonomic controls used on the rest of the WP Series range. 

Crown Equipment Executive Director – Asia Pacific – Steve Stewart, said the WP 3010 Series’ competitive pricing will bring Crown quality 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 Stewart said.  

 “In doing so, it has also compacted the entry price of the Crown WP Series model line-up. 

“It means that you no longer need to sacrifice quality, longevity and ergonomics to have an affordable power pallet truck.  

“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.
