Crown Equipment Corp., New Bremen, Ohio, introduced the Crown PTH 50S Model scissor lift hand pallet truck designed for applications using skids and Crown hand pallet forkliftopen-bottom containers.

It functions as a hand pallet truck and mobile work positioner that is suitable for a variety of workplace environments, including retail and manufacturing. Operators can elevate 2,200-pound capacity loads up to 31.5 inches by using the handle to actuate the hydraulic lift. Crown’s PTH 50S features heavy-gauge steel forks and scissor legs that are said to be stronger and more durable than other designs. The hydraulic pump is life tested to more than 1 million pump cycles to ensure trouble-free operation and long life. The truck’s steer and load wheels are engineered with high-quality compounds and bearings that lower rolling resistance and provide smooth, quiet operation for long-lasting performance. A 200-degree steering angle makes maneuvering in tight areas easier.

The heavy-duty pallet truck has an ergonomic handle design that minimizes operator fatigue, resulting in increased productivity. The control lever has three positions (raise, neutral and lower) that can be operated with one finger. The neutral position eliminates pressure from the pump and allows the handle to move freely. When operators release the spring-loaded handle, it automatically returns to a vertical position.
