Engineered to Deliver Pure Power

A revolutionary engine, rugged transmission, low maintenance brakes and dual radiator cooling system all keep the C-5 Series gas forklift performing at peak; even when the heat is on and the hours are long.

Crown’s low-emission LPG-powered 2.4 litre industrial engine is certified to the stringent European Stage V emission standard. Combined with a robust hydrodynamic transaxle, it delivers twice the lifespan of typical powertrains while extending service intervals.

The Crown Power Brake System delivers durability and performance while virtually eliminating brake maintenance.

Crown’s standard industrial dual radiator provides separate cooling for the engine and transmission. This design lowers overall fluid temperatures which protects and extends powertrain life.

The On-Demand Cooling option of the gas forklift controls fan speed and direction independent of the engine, clearing blocked radiators of debris.

Comfort, Confidence and Control

The C-5 gas forklift is designed inside and out for optimal comfort, confidence, stability and safety so operator productivity can keep pace with lift truck performance.

Operators can count on smooth handling and ease in every action, whether travelling, turning, lifting or loading and unloading. Smart use of steel, operator-forward design, intrinsic stability and easy-access controls add up to help operators get more done.

Crown applied decades of expertise with counterbalance forklifts to ensure static and dynamic stability with the C-5. The Crown Intrinsic Stability System combines engineering, manufacturing and integrated technology to proactively ensure optimal safety and performance.

The C-5 Series mast outperforms in all three strength ratings: longitudinal and lateral stiffness and torsional resistance.

The balancing of the engine virtually eliminates vibration enabling smoother performance and greater operator comfort.

Productivity is further enhanced through a new level of ergonomics and operator comfort.

  • A wide and low entry step, together with the V-contoured engine cover, allows quick and easy entry/exit on both sides of the truck.
  • The spacious step and floorboard in combination with a small and shoulder-friendly steering wheel result in extensive leg and headroom for the operator.
  • The D4 Armrest features easy one-handed adjustment of height and fore/aft position. Combined with various seat options, it allows for quick personalisation by the operator providing excellent comfort and support.
  • A low counterweight, a high seat,  the forward operator position, angled cross braces and the open-mast design provide superior visibility forward, backward and upward - even with cabin options.
