Crown Equipment Corp., New Bremen, Ohio, added two optional truck features to its Crown RM 6000 Series of narrow aisle reach trucks.Crown truck

The Xpress Lower technology reduces cycle times by decreasing the time spent waiting for the load to lower on the Crown RM 6000. Technology inside the truck increases lowering speeds to 240 feet per minute, without using any additional energy. The patent-pending design delivers three automatically controlled lower speed zones to ensure optimum performance and safety.

The Quick Change Load Wheels is a unique load wheel changing system that reduces the time it takes to replace load wheels and return the truck to operational status. The bolt-on outrigger tips are specially designed for a Quick Change cartridge to easily fit in. A tool is used to insert and remove the load wheel cartridge from the outrigger tip. The design allows the load wheel assembly to be swapped out in the aisle, eliminating the need to move the truck to a maintenance area and waiting for an available technician to jack up the truck, replace the load wheels and bring it back into service. The result is a load wheel change that occurs in only two and half minutes, which can equate to a savings of more than 25 minutes compared to a standard load wheel replacement.
