Crown Equipment Corp., New Bremen, Ohio, introduced new hard and soft cabins for the Crown C-5 Series that contain a number of features to help operators gain comfort, greater visibility and improved performance while working in unpredictable environments.
The rugged design of the hard cabin is constructed from tubular steel and is available for the pneumatic tire model. This factory-installed option offers a smooth texture, sound-absorbing surfaces that reduce noise, long bar-style door handles for strength, leverage and easy closing and 2-way sliding, locking windows. Filtered fresh air, heat and defrost controls are built into the door assembly, so operators gain more floor space. This design also enables entry and exit on right side of the cabin.
The soft cabin features an acrylic top and soft rear window and doors that can be rolled up or down as weather conditions change. The soft cabin can be ordered as a full cab, a partial cab without doors or in modular components that can be used to create a custom solution.
Through the large windows, operators can easily view the fork tips, load and surrounding environment. With both cabins, forward visibility is maintained via the safety glass windshield with wiper and washer. Large acrylic roof panels provide optimum overhead visibility, especially valuable when handling loads at height.
