Crown Equipment Corporation has updated its C-G Series of internal combustion (IC) cushion-tyre LPG counterbalance forklifts.

"This new generation of C-G Series 8,000 to 12,000-lb. (3,600-5,400 kg) cushion-tyre forklifts represents a forward leap in technical and aesthetic design, drivability, operator comfort, durability and performance," says Rob Chaney, IC marketing product manager, Crown Equipment. "The updated C-G Series includes both standard and box car counterweight models ... and (is) available with limited and full-free lift, two-stage, three-stage and four-stage masts."

With a shorter head length than standard models, box car models have a smaller footprint for even more compact turns in limited space environments, according to Chaney. "Despite their small footprint, all C-G Series forklift models feature a spacious operator compartment, generous floorboard and conveniently placed controls to provide shift-long operator comfort."

Key features include the 3.8 l Kubota industrial LPG engine, enclosed disc brakes with a five-year/10,000-hour warranty, a cast iron drive axle and an improved flow hydraulic system which lowers fluid temperature, promoting improved forklift and attachment operation.

A standard industrial dual core radiator further boosts the durability of C-G Series forklifts, with separate cooling for the engine and transmission. An optional dual radiator, with open core fins that resist clogging, is available for use in applications with dust, fibres, paper and other debris. Vented side panels are standard on box car models and optional on standard models and allow heat to escape from the engine compartment for operator comfort and to help cool the powertrain.
