Crown Equipment Corp. has introduced the Crown PTH 50PS Series powered scissor lift hand pallet truck. It helps improve comfort and efficiency in work positioning by helping avoid unnecessary bending and lifting that can cause strain and stress on the body.
Designed for use with open-bottom pallets, skids and totes, the Crown PTH 50PS is suitable for a variety of workplace environments, including printing and manufacturing. It is suitable for applications requiring frequently varied working heights because unlike a fixed lifting table typically used in these types of applications, it can function as both a hand pallet truck and mobile work positioner that can raise, lower and transport material.
The Crown PTH 50PS features an electrically-powered hydraulic system that can lift as much as 2,200 pounds at variable heights up to 31.5 inches.
The 7-inch articulated steer wheels are designed to maintain optimal contact with the floor, which helps users maneuver across dock plates, in and out of trailers and over uneven floors. A 200-degree steering angle enables better maneuverability in tight areas.
The Crown PTH 50PS offers 110 volt/60 hertz capability, meaning it can be charged basically anywhere in the facility where there is a conventional 110 volt wall outlet. It also has an onboard, 12 volt/10 amps maintenance-free battery and charger. A discharge indicator with lift cut-out prevents full discharge of the battery. All manual lifting and lowering functions of the pallet truck are retained.
