SH 5500-Stacker Series

SH 5500 Straddle Stacker Series


Heavy-Duty Straddle Stacker

1800 kg Capacity

The SH 5500 stacker navigates with ease

Crown’s SH 5500 Series heavy-duty stacker is designed for the toughest applications and the heaviest loads — up to 1800 kg. This stacker series is a cost-effective way to maximise your storage space. Compared to typical counterbalance trucks, the SH 5500 straddle stacker requires substantially less space. Electronic power steering decreases the amount of physical effort needed to manoeuvre loads. A brake-override feature allows operators to raise the handle to a near-vertical position to move the stacker in extremely confined spaces.

Load Handling Configuration
A fixed straddle with adjustable forks can be set from the factory to handle a variety of loads.

Drive Unit/Brake
An AC traction motor, combined with a heavy-duty gearbox with a helical spur input gear, provides quiet operation and powerful performance of the straddle stacker.

Regenerative motor braking is activated under downhill conditions, during plugging or when the directional control is returned to neutral. An electromagnetic brake, mounted on top of the drive motor, serves as the parking brake and applies when the control handle position moves from the operating zone to brake zone during stacker operation.

Two and three stage masts feature angled cross bracing and lift cylinders located behind nested I-beams for maximum visibility. The low-profile power unit and centrally located control of the SH 5500 stacker handle further enhance visibility.
