Crown PTH 50 Series Offers Load Capacities To 5000 LB
Manufactured by Crown Equipment Corporation, makers of Crown lift trucks, the company's PTH 50 Series hand pallet truck features an increased load capacity of 5000 lb, allowing users greater flexibility in the size of loads that can be handled.
The PTH 50 Series also has a lowered fork height of 2.9". The lowered fork height allows for easier pallet entry, further increasing productivity. The PTH 50 Series offers an entry/exit system using metal ramps to position pallet boards onto the rollers. This prevents rollers from breaking and providing smooth entry and exit.
The truck's ergonomics are evident in the handle. Tubing for the handle is larger than most hand pallet trucks and allows the operator a more comfortable grip. The handle's upper corners have a more rounded shape to ensure the operator's hands are not squeezed when traveling longer distances.
An extra sheath of steel beefs up the lower end of the handle, enhancing the truck's durability. The actuating lever provides more comfort for the operator, reducing fatigue and finger slippage.
The truck's frame remains strengthened thanks to boxed end forks, rolled steel edges, weldments between the forks and the strength ridges on the apron. Larger push rods and improved bushings and bearings have also increased the truck's durability.
Changes to the pump's internal workings make it easier and quicker for an operator to pump up a load. Reduced operator fatigue and increased productivity are the result from this enhancement
