Safe By Design
Crown forklifts are designed with safety in mind. We aim to help you maintain a safe operation with equipment designed around your operator.
All Crown sit-down models incorporate restraint systems designed to help keep the operator in the running lines of the lift truck in case of tip over. These restraints have proven to reduce injuries if properly utilized and maintained.
To accommodate various application and operator needs, Crown has various seat and restraint system options available for current Crown models. These include suspension seats and hip restraint systems.
All stand-up rider counterbalance and reach trucks include an entry bar at the opening to the operator compartment. This feature has been standard equipment since February 1998. If the bar is depressed, an alarm will sound a warning and travel speed is reduced. The bar is designated to keep operators from operating the lift truck with their foot resting outside the running lines of the lift truck.
All current Crown stand-up rider counterbalance and straddle lift trucks have backrest extensions that are 57.5 inches from the floor in the area behind the operator. Third corner posts are also standard.
