Crown Pulls Tugger Performance to New Level
New TR 3600 Series Tow Tractors Feature Significant Enhancements
NEW BREMEN, Ohio, July 27, 2006 - With the introduction of the TR 3600 Series, Crown takes performance and service capabilities for tow tractors to a new level including greater travel speeds, detailed ergonomics and simplified maintenance.
Designing lift trucks with operators and technicians in mind, Crown has added the features to enhance operator productivity and maintenance convenience. Boasting the industry's largest tugger drive unit in its class, the TR 3600 offers greater travel speeds (up to 9 mph) with greater acceleration and plugging. The combination of improved speed and operator confidence results in optimum productivity.
Operator efficiency is further enhanced by a user-friendly operator compartment. Rounded edges and thoughtful placement of operator contact points highlight an ergonomic design that keeps operators comfortable.
Service technicians will appreciate the way the Crown-manufactured, separately excited, high-torque drive motor is designed for easy service. InfoPoint® Labels and a Quick Reference Guide simplify troubleshooting to minimize downtime.
"The goal in designing a Crown tow tractor is to make it the best choice for operators and technicians for a particular application," said Crown Marketing Product Manager Jim Blanchard. "We know that if operators are comfortable and confident, they'll get the most out of the truck. It also needs to be on the floor, not in the maintenance area. By building a robust tow tractor that withstands the rigors of a warehouse environment, the TR 3600 will only enhance Crown's reputation for providing the lowest total cost of ownership."
