Welcome to Your Office

The operator compartment of the SC Series offers multiple suspension seat options to ensure a smooth and comfortable ride while the D4 Armrest provides arm and elbow support and one-handed adjustment for a customized fit. Optional bionic controls, four available configurations integrated directly into the armrest, place all of the forklift's hydraulic functions close at hand.

A variety of optional storage organizers, pockets and holders provide convenient, reconfigurable storage that places frequently used tools and accessories within easy reach.

Precise Control

The SC Series is a sit-down counterbalance forklift well-suited for a wide range of specialized tasks. Its optimized design and quiet, stable mast allows for precise control of loads of all shapes and sizes, especially when used with a variety of attachments. Whether working within the tight quarters of a semi trailer, stacking loads on the dock or handling put-away and retrieval within warehouse racks, the SC Series provides operators with the capability and confidence needed to position loads with precision.

Working in Tight Spaces

Narrow aisles and tight quarters are no match for the SC 5700 Series counterbalance forklift.  Its optimized design and 68.5” truck length – the shortest in the industry – ensures it can maneuver where no other 3-wheel counterbalance forklift can.

Better Ergonomics 

Operators benefit from the SC Series’ operator-focused ergonomics, superior visibility, ease of entry and exit and intuitive hydraulic controls options. 

Enhanced forward, rearward, upward and downward visibility enables operators to see people, objects and equipment more easily.

The Crown FlexSeat delivers a smooth and comfortable ride through its flexible seat back, wider seat and passive suspension system that absorbs and dissipates shock and vibration.
