New Bremen – Companies with snug storage spaces understand the importance of maximizing cube utilization. And when it’s time to move merchandise or manufacturing parts, it needs to be done efficiently and safely. Crown recently introduced the SH/SHR 5500 Stacker Series, offering a fast, efficient way to lift, stack and move merchandise, even in tight aisles and crowded backrooms.
Crown’s stacker was designed to work where space is limited. Due to its standard electronic power steering and brake override features, the SH/SHR is able to maneuver in aisles as compact as seven feet, while the high-visibility mast, carriage and redesigned reach mechanism improve load handling and positioning. Operators are able to load quickly and accurately, saving time. Only Crown’s SH/SHR 5500 Series stackers include the X10® Handle and electronic power steering. These features give operators precise control with ease while reducing fatigue. The powerful combination means the SH/SHR operator can lift and maneuver loads as heavy as 4,000 lbs using only one hand.
With its reach mechanism, the SH/SHR 5500 Series has the ability to perform like a counterbalanced lift truck which offers customers a great deal of flexibility. “Crown understands productivity comes from an ergonomic design that is reliable and durable, ultimately meeting the unique demands of each circumstance,” said Product Manager Rod Squires. “We often find counterbalanced trucks used in situations where a stacker is really a better tool. Crown’s Access 1 2 3®, power steering and brake override – effortlessly controlled with one finger – and AC traction motor provide a significantly tighter turning radius than typical counterbalanced lift trucks.”
The SH/SHR 5500 Series stacker is designed for intelligent performance and ease of operation. By utilizing Crown TechnovationTM* through its exclusive Access 1 2 3 Comprehensive System Control, users have the ability to adjust performance parameters to best meet specific application requirements.
