Crown Equipment Corp., New Bremen, Ohio, introduced the Crown FC 5200 Series counterbalanced forklift to give operators the strength, stability and maneuverability needed to lift heavy loads in tight aisles and on crowded docks.
The Crown FC 5200, which can support load capacities ranging from 4,000-6,500 pounds, is built with a strong, durable frame and power train to handle the most demanding loads. Crown’s Intrinsic Stability System uses integrated sensors and controllers to constantly monitor and control key forklift functions and movements. The forklift’s dual drive motors and steering axle geometry allow for a smaller turn radius, so operators can handle heavy loads in tight spaces without disturbing surrounding pallets or adding extra wear on tires.
Furthermore, the tighter turning radius of the forklift enables the truck to be used in the same space as a conventional 4-wheel forklift, while also allowing room for a larger battery that provides 15% more runtime per battery charge. The forklift’s eGEN Braking eliminates traditional friction brakes and reduces the need for maintenance.
