Features & Benefits


A 24-volt electrical system with a built-in charger.


Drive Unit/Drive Motor
The largest drive unit in its class of lift trucks means long-term performance.

The drive unit is both top and bottom mounted to withstand the constant impact delivered when crossing expansion joints or docks.

Crown-built AC drive motor matches motor performance for the task.

Horizontally mounted motor simplifies maintenance and eliminates potential handle whip.


Drive Tire
The largest drive tire in this class of lift truck improves traction and decreases downtime caused by rough floors and poor dock conditions.

Drive tire is mounted on both sides, reducing thrust when traveling over uneven surfaces.


Fork Assembly
A dual entry-exit system that combines rollers and ramps assists with pallet entry and exit. This system is designed to perform over the long haul.

A fully-adjustable fork assembly withstands loads of 6000 and 8000lb.


Control Handle
Crown’s field-proven control handle, designed for riding or walking in multi-task applications, incorporates a robust aluminum casting throughout. This provides maximum levels of hand protection and durability, and reduces damage.

Directional activator with twist grip is ergonomically designed to comfortably fit a variety of positions, minimizing hand and wrist fatigue.

Optional QuickPick™ control handle speeds order picking by reducing operator motion and fatigue.


Infinite speed control in forward and reverse can be tuned to fit any application.


Operator Comfort
The exclusive rubber kneepad gently cradles and cushions the knee as the operator performs the daily grind of starting, stopping, and turning. This durable rubber pad is standard on the PE 4000 Series, improving comfort, stability, and ultimately productivity.

The PE 4500 Series has 13% more floorboard area than its predecessor. In addition to improved foot room, the sculpted, clam-shaped doors provide more space for the operator.

Crown’s premium floor mat, standard on the PE 4500 Series, features an integral skin, open-cell foam composition to reduce discomfort and back stresses by stimulating leg muscles and improving blood circulation. The floor mat will provide the operator with a softer ride, translating into improved productivity. The improved wear resistance will lower the operating costs as well.


Steel doors provide protection of internal components such as electronic controls, motors and pumps. Doors are removable to provide further access. All components are easily accessed for fast repair or replacement.

Crown’s exclusive Access 1 2 3® Comprehensive System Control enables safe, reliable, industry-leading lift truck performance and diagnostics through an intuitive method of communication. Guaranteed.


The PE 4500 InfoPoint® system allows your technicians to trouble-shoot without schematics, wiring diagrams or service manuals for over 95 percent of your repairs.
