Forklifts withstand tough conditions

June 11, 2020
Crown Equipment’s C-5 series of heavy-duty cushion-tire forklifts now includes two models with diesel engines.

C-5 series Crown’s C-5 series of heavy-duty cushion-tire forklifts comes in several models with lifting capacities ranging from 4,000 to 6,500 pounds. Their internal combustion engines are fueled by liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). Designed for operator comfort, they feature optional adjustable armrests and wide seats.   

What’s new? Two models with a diesel engine. The diesel forklifts have a 2.5-liter industrial engine and come in two different lifting capacities: 5,000 and 6,500 pounds.  

Benefits Suitability for businesses with demanding environments, such as scrap recycling companies. Durable diesel C-5 forklifts are suited for outdoor use and come standard with Crown’s On-Demand Cooling system, which controls the speed of the cooling fan independently of the engine speed. The system protects forklifts running in hot and dirty environments by providing greater airflow while the engine is idling and automatically reversing the airflow to clear debris when the engine starts.
