I have some [ahhh very important?] questions about this, and now where at crown dot com did I see any referance to this truck.
does the "S" stand for "Small" [elf] or "Solo" [elf]? if the little guy is near or in the counterweight then they would not "derate" the capacity, would they?
Is it a guy or is Crown going to be PC and have some equally paid/serviced women to clean the rad??
inquiring minds want to know...

The truck is actually supplied with an elf that will spend his entire life maintaining the radiator of the lift truck.

This new feature will be called "sELF Cleaning Radiator", he will also be in charge of refilling the fluids of the truck which will help in increasing the intervals between pm maintenance.

Geez what will Crown think of next! for more info check out CROWN. COM

I would imagine it would have a reversable fan, it is an option on a lot of telehandlers.
Are there any pictures of it anywhere yet and what transmission has it got, t/c or hydrostat?

self cleaning radiator? sounds like the cotton and textile industry will want to give that a try. how does it work? does it shake the radiator or what?

You can not see it but there was a cage and a lanyarn and Adrian Peterson was wearing his PPE (harness) but they were photoshoped and ESPN forgot to post a note "No foot ball player was harmed while taking this picture"

Fair enough, I agree with that.
Like you said it is normal that there will be bugs, as long as they are not rinos....
But there are some consideration to be made, when we talk about the trucks you mentioned, you have to remember for example that the Crowns RRs 5000 basically represented the starting point for Crown self engineered and interactive mosfet controllers, about the Raymond and the Yale, that is basically imported technology adapted and put together on a very slightly vertically integrated piece of machinery.
In this case I have the feeling that this truck will have a very few youth issues, it's just a feeling..... by mark my words.
If I am wrong I will be the first one to come back here to admit it.

OK Maximus, I'll cut you some slack. But please consider this, how many times have you seen a next generation truck from any manufacturer touted as the best thing since sliced bread, only to get at least 2 to 3 years worth of actual real world use. All next generation trucks have bugs, ask Raymond on their 7400's or how about Yale's AC three wheeler, or Crowns 5000 series when it first came out? I'm not doubting that this thing is probably pretty cutting edge. All Im saying is I'll remain skeptical until it actually puts some years under its belt and customers who have owned them that year or two repeat the same things your saying. No disrespect towards you bro, peace out.
