Do Twice the Work

The Work Assist Vehicle is a revolutionary, mobile productivity tool that allows one person to safely and efficiently accomplish the work of two while travelling twice as fast as the average walking speed. 

  • Reach working heights of up to 5 metres

  • Travel up to 8 km/h with travel speed based on lift height

  • Simultaneously travel and elevate for smoother, more efficient workflows

  • Manoeuvre through tight aisles and doorways as narrow as 80 cm

Safety with Every Turn  

The Wave's built-in system of protection and control starts the moment the operator turns the key switch. Crown's Access 1 2 3 System coordinates a functional display, manages lift/lower operations and controls travel speeds, steering and braking.

The Wave's four-point safety system provides enhanced operator control and safety.

Interlocked gates must be closed to raise or lower the platform.

Safety sensors below the platform disable raise, lower and travel if someone or something applies pressure to the motor cover located below the platform.

Hand sensors ensure the operator has both hands on the controls for normal travel and lift functions.

Dual foot pedals include sensors to ensure the operator has both feet properly positioned on the platform. The Wave automatically stops travel and lift/lower functions if either foot is removed.

Productivity that Pays for Itself

Experience a world without the risks of traditional ladders – employee falls and injuries, expenses of lost time and productivity, and expensive product damage.

Many Wave customers report a complete return on investment within one year of purchase.

Labour is cut in half

A two-person task becomes a one-person task and a one-person task can be accomplished twice as fast.  

Lost-time expense reduction

Increased safety also reduces overtime or replacement labour to compensate for worker injury associated with falls from a ladder. 

Product damage reduction

Safer product handling and lift assistance reduces risk of products dropping off a ladder. 

the WAV order picker doubles productivity and reduces the risks associated with ladders

Flexibility to Handle Virtually any Application

The Wave is ideal for operations in busy, confined spaces where workers move with short and long travel runs, and where small loads are handled. It is a versatile alternative for facilities that currently use rolling ladders, traditional order pickers or working platforms to access high places.
