Crown Equipment Corporation has introduced a new line of small footprint LPG forklifts, the C-G Series.

"Crown C-G series forklifts are space-savers for customers with limited floor space, and, at the same time, they are space-givers for lift truck operators who appreciate extra room to freely, efficiently and safely drive their machines," says Rob Chaney, C-G Series marketing product manager.

The C-G chassis is 5-6 in. (13-15 mm) narrower than the chassis of a typical 4,000 to 7,000 lb. (1,800 to 3,200 kg) forklift, allowing C-G Series forklifts to navigate tight rack storage aisles. Chaney says the new model economises on space for end-users that utilise floor space to block stack. The truck also is well-suited for tight manufacturing areas and small businesses, such as breweries, that have limited space.

The new lift truck comes with a choice of masts, with a range of lift heights from 78 to 236 in. (2-6 m).

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.

"And because C-G forklifts are equipped with an electronic switch parking brake, they don't have a parking brake handle, giving operators even more room to move freely," Chaney adds. "Combined with the low step height, grab bar, extra headroom and sculpted seat deck, this makes entry and exit easy for operators."

The new lift truck is powered by a 4-cylinder, 2 l LP engine with powershift transmission. The 50.6 HP engine includes a selectable economy mode and top speed control.

An optional heavy-duty cooling package is available for heavy-use applications and for operation in high ambient temperatures.
