New Crown SP 3500 Four-Point Series Stockpicker

Crown Equipment Corporation, one of the world’s leading forklift manufacturers,  introduced the Crown SP 3500 Four-Point Series Stockpicker. The innovative stockpicker features several advanced technologies that enable it to enhance the operator confidence, stability and performance levels needed for lifting and picking large, bulky and heavy loads in narrow aisles.
The Crown SP 3500 Four-Point Series Stockpicker is specifically engineered to handle tough, non-standard loads at heights exceeding 30 feet, such as in furniture applications where 48-inch load centers, bulky loads and high lift heights are common. The orderpicker provides the largest stability footprint in the industry by handling the load on four wheels instead of three. Operators will notice how the Load Path Stability Design stabilizes the load and decreases sway by evenly distributing the force of the load from the platform through the mast and power unit, down the drive unit and caster to the ground.
Unlike other orderpickers that incorporate plastic into much of the power unit, the Crown SP 3500 Four-Point Series uses heavy-gauge steel in the skirt, doors and battery cover. This additional weight, combined with a heavy-duty mast, gives the truck substantial weight capacity advantages at height and further contributes to stability.
“Many orderpicking applications require operators to work on the platform at heights nearly three stories high,” said Maria Schwieterman, product manager, Crown. “For this reason, it is important that the lift trucks are designed specifically for these challenging applications. Modifying a three-wheel design is simply not good enough. For non-standard applications, no other stockpicker matches the lift height, capacity and narrow-aisle capabilities that the Crown SP 3500 Four-Point Series offers. This has a big impact on operator confidence; and, when the operator is confident with the truck, they can work faster and more efficiently.”
The forklift combines Crown AC motor technology with the Access 1 2 3® Comprehensive System Control. Crown’s AC motor technology is designed to provide smooth acceleration, seamless direction reversals and overall responsiveness that are necessary when maneuvering at heights. Crown’s exclusive Access 1 2 3 system control monitors key forklift systems and communicates real-time information. As conditions change, the truck uses this information to respond immediately with safe, optimized performance. In addition, the InfoPoint® System complements Access 1 2 3 technology to provide faster, simpler and higher quality diagnostics by following a logical, easy-to-understand troubleshooting process.
The Crown SP 3500 Four-Point Series incorporates the same mast construction, spacious platform, intuitive controls and display as the Crown SP 3500 Three-Point Series. It is available in three models: Crown SP 3570F, Crown SP 3580F Furniture Platform and Crown SP 3580F Cart Handling.
