SH/SHR Series

Navigate with Ease

Crown’s heavy-duty straddle stackers enable operators to quickly and easily maneuver the heaviest loads while navigating in tight areas.

SH/SHR 5500 Pallet Stacker

Optimized for Tight Spaces 

Operators of Crown SH/SHR Series find them easy to use – even in tight spaces – since the innovative controls and compact design enhance maneuverability. The pantograph reach mechanism of the SHR Series combines the advantages of a straddle stacker and a counterbalance forklift to handle a wide variety of pallet sizes. It can also be used with block stacked pallets where there is no space between loads for outriggers, allowing the operator to reach over obstacles, rather than reposition them.

The exclusive Crown X10 Handle simplifies every lift truck function while the electronic power steering minimizes steering effort and reduces fatigue – even when navigating loads up to 4000 pounds with one hand. A brake override feature facilitates operation in extremely confined spaces with the handle in a nearly vertical position.

The low-profile power unit, clear mast design – with nested rails and the efficient routing of hydraulic hoses – all contribute to clear visibility so operators can move loads quickly and confidently even while working with elevated loads.

Powerful and Intelligent Performance 

The SH Series features a powerful, efficient AC traction system and Crown’s intelligent Access 1 2 3 technology to deliver the most reliable and advanced stacker performance available.  

Crown’s exclusive Access 1 2 3 Comprehensive System Control enables safe, optimized control. Operators also benefit from features such as ramp hold and speed control. Operators can quickly and easily select between two levels of programmable travel performance to match their experience level or application requirements. In addition, the power boost feature assures an extra measure of power when encountering obstacles such as dock plates or doorway transitions.

Durability Inside and Out  

With the SH Series, durability is evident all around to take the abuse of your toughest applications.  

The SH’s robust frame incorporates generous amounts of heavy-gauge steel throughout and the heavy-duty mast and outriggers have been proven on Crown’s industry-leading  RR Series reach trucks. 

The die-cast aluminum control handle includes structural webbing for maximum strength and durability.  The power unit doors are made of steel for an extra measure of protection to internal components.
