load as well as the direction of travel.

The RC Series Intrinsic Stability System

Rock-Solid Performance

Crown’s proactive Intrinsic Stability System proactively addresses the potential causes of lift truck instability, enabling operators to perform tasks with confidence.

  • Hydraulic, travel, cornering and ramp speeds are all monitored and controlled as a system to help avoid unsafe operation.

  • A tilt interlock limits tilt at higher lift levels that could
    result in tip-overs.

  • A stability-enhancing counterweight exceeds ANSI standard requirements to further boost operator confidence.

A Customisable, Comfortable Fit

Operators who are comfortable and confident accomplish more. That’s why Crown developed innovative features
into the RC Series forklift with the comfort and safety in mind.

Adjustable floor suspension adapts to operator weight to provide shock and vibration protection.

FlexRide Suspension System

Provides up to 152mm of adjustment for improved posture and operator comfort.

Adjustable Armrest

Comfortable grip handle provides access to all forklift functions and enables operators to blend functions for enhanced productivity.

Multi-task Handle

Promotes safe operation by discouraging operators from using only one foot to operate the forklift, automatically applying the brake when the operator’s left foot is removed from the brake pedal.

Dual-pedal Design

Works in combination with the brake and presence pedal, slowing the forklift and sounding an audible alarm when depressed by the operator.
