New Industrial Power

A revolutionary engine, rugged transmission, low maintenance brakes and dual radiator cooling system all keep our 4,000-6,500 lb cushion forklifts performing at peak, even when the heat is on and the hours are long.

Crown's low-emission, LPG-powered 2.4 liter industrial engine, combined with a robust powershift transaxle, delivers dependable, long-lasting performance while maximizing uptime through extended service intervals.

Crown's cushion tire 4,000-6,500 lb forklifts are designed for comfort, confidence, stability, and safety so operator productivity can keep pace with lift truck performance.

Operators can count on smooth handling and ease of operation, whether traveling, turning, lifting or loading and unloading. Smart use of steel, operator-forward design and easy-access controls help operators get more done.

Crown applied decades of expertise with counterbalance lift trucks to ensure static and dynamic stability with its internal combustion forklifts. The Crown Intrinsic Stability System combines engineering, manufacturing and integrated technology to proactively ensure safety and performance. The balancing of the engine virtually eliminates vibration, enabling greater performance and smoother operation.

Unprecedented Value

Less maintenance, a long lifespan and dependable uptime add up to low total cost of ownership. With removeable side panels and generous access space, our forklifts are designed for "standing access" to commonly serviced components.

The Crown C-5 LPG Cushion Forklift demonstrates Crown's commitment to long-term value with its cost-saving, productivity-enhancing features, including long-term warranties and a global support system.
