Crown launches new LPG-powered forklift truck for European market

The C-5 Series of four-wheel counterbalance forklift trucks redefines the LPG-powered lift truck by incorporating a Crown-built engine and a rugged powertrain with a lifespan of up to 20,000 operating hours. Advanced technology is evident in every detail – from the innovative, dual-radiator cooling system and ergonomic design through to the intelligent stability system, providing high reliability and productivity-boosting efficiency.

Available with lifting capacities of up to three tons, Crown C-5 lift trucks work through the longest shifts and in all kinds of weather while delivering a full range of performance even over rough terrain. Moreover, the 2.4-liter industrial engine is energy-efficient and produces minimal vibration.

“We needed a tough truck for this application as the site is built on a hill and one of our main large-parts storage areas is at the top of the site. The Crown C-5 is very powerful, with enough torque to easily deal with the inclines, even when carrying heavy components,” said Kevin Cooper, Section Leader at Terex Trucks Motherwell in the UK, where the C-5 forklifts are already in operation.

Available as an option, Crown’s On-Demand Cooling (ODC) system combines precise ventilation with radiator clearing for reliable cooling as required. “This means that with each engine start, the fan automatically reverses to clear debris from the radiator. The cooling system is temperature-controlled, so completely independent of engine speed or direction of travel,” explained Martin Hainge, Director of Marketing EMEA at Crown. “And because it’s so efficient, we provide a five-year guarantee for the powertrain when fitted with the On-Demand Cooling system.”
