The new Crown ESi 4000 and ETi 4000 stackers overcome everyday obstacles

Munich, April 08, 2013 – Following a successful launch in August 2012, Crown’s new ES 4000 / ET 4000 Series is expanding again. With the addition of the ESi 4000 and ETi 4000 initial lift stackers, the range is now capable of meeting any and all stacking challenges.

Uneven floors, inclines, loading ramps, pallets that sometimes need to be carried breadth-wise – stackers must be capable of operating in a wide variety of difficult working conditions. The small ‘i’ in the names of the new ESi 4000 and ETi 4000 models reflects a big leap in versatility: the new trucks mean this popular range can now handle an even greater array of applications.

Both the ESi 4000 pedestrian stacker and the ETi 4000 rider stacker feature an initial lift system that provides additional ground clearance helping to avoid stranded loads when traversing uneven floors or cresting ramps. It is also possible to transport two pallets simultaneously including up to two tonnes on the load arms. Optional entry/exit rollers even allow operators to enter pallets over bottom boards. A further advantage of the Crown initial lift is that it features a pull-rod system that positions the riser axle at the highest point possible to eliminate damage and wear.

With lift heights ranging from 2.4 to 5.4 metres, and load capacities of 1.2, 1.4 or 1.6 tonnes, customers can be sure of finding precisely the right stacker to fit their needs. At the same time the series continues to offer the features that have made the ES 4000 / ET 4000 trucks so successful: proportional lift for precise fork positioning and the ergonomically designed X10® control handle for optimum manoeuvrability. The new rider trucks also feature FlexRideTM operator platform suspension for stress-free operation even over long shifts and of course, all models feature Crown’s maintenance-free e-GEN® braking system.

The purpose-built Crown AC traction motor, a cast iron gearbox and rugged steel covers prolong each truck’s working life and reduce service costs. Advanced features such as Access 1 2 3® system control features secure PIN code access, truck status information and built-in diagnostics for faster service, all designed to keep customers’ cost-performance ratio low.

Whether racking, retrieving and transporting open or enclosed pallets, working on rough surfaces, loading and unloading lorries over docks and ramps or double stacking – the new ESi 4000 and ETi 4000 initial lift models are perfectly equipped to tackle any and every challenge, indoors or outdoors.
