Crown Equipment Corporation’s TR 4500 Series of tuggers can tow a rolling load capacity of 10,000 lbs.

The drive unit is built to endure constant jerks, jolts, and demands of high through-put manufacturing and warehousing environments. The carefully integrated design uses top and bottom mounting for increased life and includes Crown’s AC drive motor, providing high torque and greater draw bar pull. Crown’s e-GEN braking system uses the torque of the AC motor to deliver frictionless braking for long life and trouble-free operation.

Crown designed the frame with a combination of heavy-gauge steel and structural enhancements at the greatest points of stress. Steel power unit doors also provide protection to internal components. The Crown TR 4500 Series includes a 13-inch drive tire that extends run time compared to other brands’ 10-inch tires. Quick-adjust casters enable fast, easy adjustments to maintain optimum traction and enhanced truck stability while turning.

Crown’s electronic power steering system delivers precise control and eliminates awkward body movements that can contribute to increased operator fatigue and stress.

The operator compartment of the Crown TR 4500 Series includes a padded wrap-around backrest that contours to the operator, and an operator-sensing floorboard that eliminates a raised high-speed pedal to provide greater flexibility for body positioning. The floorboard’s shock-absorbing design and urethane cushion enhances postural relief and operator comfort.

Crown’s Access 1 2 3 technology works with the AC drive motor to automatically reduce the truck’s speed as the steer angles increase, enhancing operator stability. Operators of the Crown TR 4500 Series also benefit from Crown’s X10 Control Handle that features ergonomically designed hand grips and dual thumb wheels that eliminate awkward wrist positions.
