Crown Equipment Expands IC Forklift Line for Heavy-Duty Applications

NEW BREMEN, Ohio (January 22, 2019) – Crown Equipment Corporation, one of the world’s largest material handling companies, today announced an expansion of its internal combustion (IC) line of counterbalance forklifts designed for heavy-duty applications with the introduction of the Crown C-G Series and C-D Series. The company’s pneumatic tire IC forklift is now available with capacities up to 20,000 pounds.

Crown’s IC forklifts are ideal for manufacturing plants, construction sites, brick and lumber yards, and recycling centers where operators need versatility to handle multiple tasks and rugged reliability to navigate rough terrain, unpredictable weather and heavy loads. They combine rugged strength and durability with an operator-focused compartment for added comfort, control and confidence. They feature industrial diesel and LPG engines and transmissions that deliver the long-term performance and endurance needed to operate in challenging environments. The forklifts also have industrial dual radiators that provide separate cooling for the powertrain in order to reduce fluid temperatures for extended reliability.

“We work closely with customers to understand their needs, and the operational and business challenges they face,” said Rob Chaney, IC marketing product manager, Crown Equipment. “With the addition of the C-G Series and C-D Series, our IC portfolio now offers customers more options to achieve productivity and efficiency gains in indoor and outdoor heavy-duty applications. All this is backed by Crown’s extensive support network that encompasses factory support to over 200 sales and service locations.”

An array of additional, optional accessories and attachments are available to fit a variety of work applications. This includes rear view cameras and cabin options that can be equipped with heat and air conditioning to help operators gain improved comfort, visibility and performance while working in unpredictable environments.
