NEW BREMEN, Ohio – Maximizing productivity in stockpicking comes down to a simple concept: confidence. When operators are continually working from what amounts to be the ledge of a three-story building, they must be confident in their lift trucks in order to reach optimum levels of productivity.

With the introduction of the SP 3400 Series, Crown has set a new standard for stockpickers while enhancing the company’s reputation for earning the trust of lift truck operators. "The SP 3400 Series delivers in every area that matters most to operators,” said Rod Squires, Marketing Product Manager for Crown Stockpickers. “The frame and mast are designed for an extra measure of stability at height. In addition, the lift trucks feature superior visibility, the fastest performance in class, added comfort, smoother operation, and enhanced reliability. It all adds up to greater confidence which means greater stockpicking productivity."

Knowing how sudden stops or lurches can shake operator confidence, Crown engineers worked to assure that SP 3400 Series trucks move smoothly in every facet of operation. They feature Crown’s exclusive Access 3™ Traction Control System that combines unmatched travel speeds – up to 7.5 mph – with smooth acceleration, plugging and braking. Advanced linear speed control, available on high performance models, gradually adjusts speed during height transitions. Plus the trucks feature Crown’s patented Intelligent Braking System (IBS) that combines motor braking with three levels of friction braking for smoother stops at all heights. The focus on operator comfort even includes Crown’s premium anti-fatigue floor mat that reduces the effects of vibration and standing fatigue, while enhancing operator stability.

“When operators are confident in their trucks, they’re more comfortable in using its advanced performance features which improves productivity,” said Squires. “That means operators will appreciate this new series, and so will their managers.”

Crown’s SP 3400 Series encompasses four different models providing a comprehensive range of battery capacities and lift heights for every stockpicking need. More information is available at Crown.com.
