Crown adds diesel options
Crown Equipment Corporation has introduced a diesel option to the Crown C-5 Series, first launched in 2009 as the company's first internal combustion line of industrial pneumatic and cushion tyre forklifts.
The new Crown C-5 diesel forklift, available in 5,000 and 6,500 lb. (2,205 and 2,700 kg) lifting capacities, features a 2.5 l industrial engine.
"The new diesel C-5 follows the lead of the C-5 LPG model, with an industrial, heavy-duty Kohler engine, opening the series to an even broader range of customers that require maximum durability, long-lasting reliability and operator comfort in demanding environments," says Rob Chaney, C-5 marketing product manager. "The diesel C-5 is an ideal outdoor truck for foundries, lumber and masonry yards, scrap-waste recycling businesses, manufacturing logistics, and any other operations that have diesel fuel on site for delivery truck fleets.
"The complete C-5 Series offers a high-performance powertrain, precise cooling, ergonomic design for operator comfort, and stability," he says.
The new models are backed by a three-year/6,000-hour warranty.
A variety of options are available for special applications, such as debris guards that protect loads in wet environments; air-filled tyres instead of the standard solid pneumatics for better traction in mud and snow, and to prevent ground compaction; and dual drive tyres for greater stability and hauling wide loads.
