Crown Equipment Corp. has introduced a line of small footprint LPG lift trucks—the C-G Series Cushion Tire 3,000-4,000 lb.—designed for easy maneuvering and operator comfort in manufacturing, warehouse and beverage operations with limited space.
The 37-inch-wide C-G chassis—about five to six inches narrower than the chassis of a typical 4,000 to 7,000 lb. forklift—allows C-G Series forklifts to navigate tight rack storage aisles. The truck is suited for tight manufacturing areas and small businesses, such as breweries, that have limited space.
Available in 3,000-, 3,500- and 4,000-lb. capacities, the new lift truck comes with a choice of masts, with a range of lift heights, from 78 to 236 inches. The operator compartment offers a spacious floorboard and strategic pedal placement to allow operators to easily pivot their foot from accelerator to brake, and to the inching pedal.
Other operator comforts include the tilting and telescoping steering column, standard adjustable suspension seat, USB ports, and the standard reverse travel handle and horn button, which add to the comfort and safety of reversing with a load, allowing the operator to keep hands inside the forklift.
The new lift truck is powered by a 4-cylinder, 2-liter LP engine with powershift transmission. The 50.6 HP engine includes a selectable economy mode and top speed control.
