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 Australia-wide through Crown’s national branch network and its online store.

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-use-ergonomic controls used on the rest of the WP Series range.

Crown Equipment director, sales and marketing, Craig Kenchington, says 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," he says. "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."

The new model launch coincides with Crown again earning the prestigious iF Design Award from iF International Forum Design.

An international jury of 63 independent experts awarded Crown the coveted seal of approval in the ‘Automobiles/Vehicles’ category, in recognition of the high-quality product design of the company’s WP 3010 compact pallet truck.

Since 1962, Crown has received more than 100 awards from internationally renowned design institutions and associations. This is Crown’s 30th iF Design Award.

"The WP 3010 compact pallet truck is the smart solution for a wide range of tasks – especially in the food retail, beverage and logistics sectors," Crown director of industrial design Jim Kraimer says. "Ultimately, this agile powerhouse is all about speeding up goods turnover and enhancing productivity, while minimising the costs involved.

"The fact that our work is recognised by well-known design professionals gives us yet another incentive to continue with our successful approach to design."
