Crown Equipment Corporation (New Bremen, OH) has introduced a diesel option to the groundbreaking Crown C-5 Series. Crown launched the series in 2009 as the company’s first internal combustion line of industrial pneumatic and cushion tire forklifts. The new Crown C-5 diesel forklift, available in 5,000- and 6,500-lb. lifting capacities, features a 2.5-liter industrial engine designed for Crown by Kohler. The C-5 Series continues to offer the Crown designed and manufactured industrial LPG engine in 4,000-, 5,000-, 6,000-and 6,500-lb. capacities. Crown backs the primary features of the durable, ruggedly designed and manufactured C-5 Series forklifts with three-year/6,000-hour warranties. The C-5 is available with a variety of ergonomic features for operator comfort, including:
- The new optional D4 armrest, which allows easy, comfortable control of hydraulic levers. The armrest can be adjusted, with one hand, to the operator’s desired height and arm length.
- Comfortable, wide seats, including the Crown FlexSeat®, with a flexible back and replaceable parts; mechanical suspension seat; and a new air-ride suspension seat with heated seat and backrest for optimal comfort.
- An optional 10-inch steering wheel with tiller for tight maneuvering and to provide more space for entering and exiting the truck.
