Crown has elevated the style and substance of its Wave® Work Assist Vehicle® with important specification enhancements and fresh aesthetics. The Wave’s revisions strengthen its well-known functionality, which has helped numerous organisations around the world improve workplace safety and productivity levels beyond the capability of ladders.
The new Wave 60 Series’ new AC drive motors provide powerful performance – with travel speeds of up to 8km/h and increased manoeuvrability – and improved durability. Hand sensors help ensure operators have both hands inside the perimeter of the vehicle and on the controls during operation. Travel and lift/lower functions cease if either hand is removed from the controls.
Safety sensors below the platform disable Wave’s raise, lower and travel functions if the motor cover is obstructed. Dual foot pedals with built-in sensors make sure operators have both feet properly positioned on the platform; if either foot is removed, travel and lift/lower functions are automatically disabled. Stamped steel side covers, steel front, rear and side bumpers and three-spoke cast steel wheels help improve upon the renowned longevity of Crown equipment.
