The Crown MPC 3000 Series order picker is designed to combine the versatility of a counterbalance forklift and a pallet truck. The MPC Series is designed with a high-lift mast to allow operators to order pick, stack, replenish, and transport pallets with the use of one lift truck. Operators can raise and lower the forks as they build pallets at a comfortable height while an overhead guard design improves overhead visibility. Sensors monitor steer wheel angle, fork height, and load weight to adjust speed and acceleration. The counterbalance design of the Crown MPC Series provides full clearance of the forks from the load wheel to eliminate the need to provide extra clearance between pallets and under conveyors. The truck is also designed with a heavy-gauge steel skirt and chassis to reduce truck damage in demanding and congested applications by protecting valuable truck components.
