Crown Equipment has released a new series of state-of-the-art lift trucks combining the benefits of an order picker with the advantages of a counterbalance forklift.
The new Crown MPC 3000 Series combines a high-lift, clear-view mast with an outrigger-free counterbalance design and an ergonomic ride-on platform; a combination that creates a versatile, multi-purpose lift truck capable of performing tasks usually requiring more than one piece of equipment.
It features the tried-and-tested Crown AC traction motor for reliability and powerful acceleration, and is capable of travelling up to 12.5km/h and lifting 1200 kilograms to a height of 4.3 metres. It can lift full-capacity loads (at a 600mm load centre) to the full height of the mast.
MPC 3000’s all-round solid steel construction is designed and tested to withstand intensive use while its large, long-life load wheels are easily accessible for quick replacement.
The MPC 3000 automatically adjusts cornering speed and acceleration depending on steer wheel angle, fork height and load weight, for stability. Combined with responsive brakes and a suspended, shock-absorbing floorboard, MPC 3000 maximises operator safety, comfort and confidence.
