Wide Open Views   

For operators working in confined spaces, visibility is essential. To this end, the unique design geometry of the RC Series outpaces all others where it counts the most: in trailers, narrow aisles, and areas congested with pedestrians, equipment and products. 

The power unit curves in on the right side (where operators look most often). This contour, along with the low profile power unit translates into industry-leading visibility.

The mast and pillar design also enhances forward visibility. This has been achieved through the clean routing of hydraulics and chains as well as the orientation of the pillar itself.

More Productive Operators  

It’s proven: operators who are comfortable and confident accomplish more. That’s why Crown developed industry leading, innovative features into the RC Series with the operator in mind. 

The stand-up design gives operators the flexibility and comfort they need for faster throughput. Highlights include soft touch points, a revolutionary FlexRide platform suspension system, shock-absorbing padding, unrivaled workspace and ease of entry/exit.

Crown’s RC Series offers more than three times the protection of typical lift trucks from shocks and vibrations such as bone-jarring impacts over dock plates, expansion joints and rough floors.

Safe and Efficient Performance   

A lift truck that enables its operator to perform at their best can substantially improve total operational efficiency. The RC Series stability and control features allow the operator to focus on the task at hand.
