Crown PTH 50PS
Crown Equipment Corporation has introduced the Crown PTH 50PS Series powered scissor lift hand pallet truck designed to help 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. Crown says it suits 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 PTH 50PS features an electrically powered hydraulic system that can lift as much as 2,200 lb. (1,000 kg) at variable heights up to 31.5 in. (80 cm).
Crown also claims its pallet truck's heavy-gauge steel forks and scissor legs are stronger and more durable than other designs. Its steer and load wheels are engineered with high-quality compounds and bearings that lower rolling resistance for long-lasting performance and provide smooth, quiet operation. The 7 in. (18 cm) articulated steer wheels are designed to maintain optimal contact with the floor, which helps users easily manoeuvre across dock plates, in and out of trailers and over uneven floors. A 200-degree steering angle enables better manoeuvrability in tight areas.
The Crown PTH 50PS can be charged via any conventional 110 v wall outlet. It also has an onboard, 12 v/10 A maintenance-free battery and charger.
