Stronger Where It Counts

A revolutionary engine, rugged transmission, low maintenance brakes and dual radiator cooling system all keep our internal combustion pneumatic tire forklifts performing at peak, even when the heat is on and the hours are long.

Crown’s low-emission, LPG-powered 2.4-liter industrial engine, combined with a robust powershift transaxle, delivers dependable, long-lasting performance while maximizing uptime through extended service intervals.
