Sit-Down Reach Truck - ESR Series

Real Performance Is Within Reach

The ESR 1200 Reach Truck with Xpress Lower technology can double lowering speed to improve cycle time and increase productivity while regenerative lowering reduces energy consumption.

Built-in connectivity provided by the Gena operating system provides operators, managers and service technicians with a connected, data-rich environment that's more human, personalized and interactive.

Work Smarter and Faster at Height

On an ESR reach truck, operators work with skill and precision at any height without compromising productivity. The ESR Series features various combinations of advanced hydraulics and motors, programmable features, intuitive displays, one-touch controls and camera options that all work together to raise performance.

  • The ESR reach trucks’ optional Xpress Lower technology can double lowering speeds, resulting in substantial savings in time and money.
  • The optional Auto Height Select feature automatically stops the forks at programmed rack heights - at the push of a button without looking away from the load - to improve throughput and avoid product, rack and lift truck damage.
  • The Tilt Position Assist option compensates for mast and carriage deflection and automatically levels forks relative to the ground for more precise positioning.

Solid Mast, Higher Heights

To ensure that your reach truck is equipped with the right mast for your application, three mast designs are available for the ESR Series reaching heights up to 560 inches.

All three versions have been designed by Crown to resist flexing which reduces mast vibrations and swaying at height.

They offer impressive residual capacities of 2600 lbs up to 470 in. Other benefits include reduced loading and unloading times, higher throughput, improved operator confidence and added levels of safety.

Excel in Extreme Environments

The spacious enclosed freezer cabin provides a heated, comfortable work environment in extreme temperature applications (-22°F). The cabin also affords exceptional visibility that contributes to operator productivity and comfort. Available on ESR 1240 and ESR 1260 models.

Using the reach truck in wet, dusty or freezer applications will greatly benefit from Crown’s patented OnTrac anti-slip traction control which reduces tire spin during acceleration, plugging and braking.

Built-in Intelligence

The ESR Series combines enhanced safety with productivity and usability.
Intelligent systems provide contextual guidance to help increase operator awareness and provide a safe and productive working
environment. At the same time, the smart technology provides a platform for growth, scalable to meet your future application needs.

Make it Personal

Ergonomics and personalization play a vital role in improving productivity.
Operators of an ESR reach truck can choose the optimal position for control, visibility and workflow.

ESR Series reach trucks include adjustability for suspension seat height/weight and forward/reverse seat position, as well as seat tilt and lumbar support.

The D4 Armrest can be mounted to the seat or the reach truck. Its height and horizontal position are also adjustable, as are steering tiller height and horizontal position and display screen inclination.

A great fit for both small and large operators.

The ESR Series reach trucks' offset mast gives the operator a better view of the load wheel, fork and pallet.

The optional panoramic glass further enhances visibility and provides a superior debris shield.

Integrated into the armrest, the ESR reach trucks’ optional display navigation knob provides a convenient alternative to the touchscreen.

Accessories such as worklights and seat heater are controlled from auxiliary switches in the armrest control panel.

The operator-focused D4 Armrest, available as standard on the ESR 1260 and as an option for the ESR 1220 and ESR 1240, helps operators achieve more with adjustability, ergonomic comfort and adaptability.

A choice of fingertip, dual lever or multi-task controls allows you to customise your reach truck based on application needs and operator preference.
