Maneuver with Ease

Travel narrow aisles with your heavy loads seamlessly. Space-saving design provides maneuverability in tight spaces and enables you to use the FC Series where other counterbalance trucks simply won’t fit.

Dual drive motors improve radial turning space efficiency, allowing the FC Series forklift to move larger loads with ease. Enhanced steering geometry provides best-in-class four-wheel lift truck maneuverability. 


Performance that Adds Up 

Rapid acceleration and optimized travel speeds deliver improved performance and the ability to move up to 10% more loads per shift.

The redesigned FC Series forklift features a near-zero turning radius and allows for a larger battery, providing longer runtime than similar trucks with up to 40% more loads per battery charge. Even the hydraulic system has been optimized to provide greater lift, tilt and lower speeds, resulting in increased productivity and savings of time, energy and effort.

Designed for Durability

All Crown lift trucks are engineered, designed and manufactured for long-term performance and the FC Series is no exception. With a strong, durable frame, powertrain and brakes, the FC Series forklift handles demanding loads with ease. Crown’s I-beam mast design, rugged mast carriage and a stronger load backrest resist bending and twisting when loaded.

Crown-built AC motors ensure enhanced performance and reliability, while eGen braking offers an advantage in performance, service and total cost of ownership by virtually eliminating brake maintenance.
