Crown Equipment, New Bremen, Ohio, announced the new Crown MPC 3000 Series order picker.

Combining the versatility of a counterbalance forklift and a pallet truck, the MPC Series features a high-lift mast that provides operators the flexibility to order pick, stack, replenish and transport pallets with the use of one lift truck.

The Crown MPC Series can perform across a variety of applications – ranging from unloading at the dock to transport and put-away. Operators can also raise and lower the forks as they build pallets at a comfortable height. Overhead visibility is improved thanks to an overhead guard design providing a better view for operators who need to position forks and loads at height. Sensors monitor steer wheel angle, fork height and load weight to adjust speed and acceleration for smooth cross-docking and long-distance transport.

The counterbalance design provides full clearance of the forks from the load wheel, which eliminates the need to provide extra clearance between pallets and under conveyors. This approach allows operators to save space by packing pallets closer and conserve effort by fitting under conveyors easier. Also, the truck’s heavy-gauge steel skirt and chassis reduce truck damage in demanding and congested applications by protecting valuable truck components, while the sturdy I-beam mast design enables the truck and operator to handle full capacity loads at height.

The spacious operator compartment, combined with a low step height, accommodates operators of various sizes while providing ample room for task movements and comfortable entry and exit of the truck.
