Crown launches low-cost,
high-performance electric pallet truck

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 soon to be available across New Zealand through Crown’s national sales and rentals branch network.

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 (500 mm) head length, fork length of up to 1150 mm, built-in charger and low weight (279 kg without battery) make it nimble and convenient – perfect for back-of-truck work. 

However, its load capacity of 1600 kg, 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 the easy-to-use ergonomic controls that are utilised on the rest of the WP Series range.

Compact dimensions

Craig Kenchington, Crown Equipment director, sales and marketing, 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,” Mr Kenchington 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,” he adds.

“This new model is perfectly at home doing kerbside deliveries or transport on truck beds, as well as for retail applications and even manufacturing environments,” he says.
