Crown Equipment Corp. has introduced the D4 Armrest as an option for its Crown C-5 Series, Crown FC Series and Crown SC Series sit-down counterbalance forklifts. It is ergonomically designed to help improve operator experience and comfort.
The fully adjustable, D4 Armrest features a large surface area with a breathable pad that pulls moisture from the operator’s arm and is replaceable as wear and tear occur. It has an integrated horn button, built-in grab handle and complete up/down and fore/aft adjustment allowing the operator to operate the forklift in a more productive manner.
For the Crown FC Series and Crown SC Series, users may choose any one of four integrated bionic hydraulic control layout options:
● Fingertip option for operators who require rapid, minimal hand movements to operate, and easy blending of hydraulic functions. It features thumb-activated directional control, a wrist support and optimally spaced soft-touch controls.
● Dual-lever option for operators wearing heavy gloves in freezer and cold storage environments. It features finger-activated direction control and two multi-axis control levers.
● Mini-lever option for operators who require precise control and use a variety of control methods (finger, pinch-grip, etc.). Variable-spaced controls can be field-adjusted to provide spacing versatility to match operator preference.
● Combination option for operators who prefer the dual-lever option for the most used functions but also require the finer hydraulic control for the attachments.
