4-Wheel Counterbalanced Forklift
4000 - 6500 lb Capacity

Features & Benefits


A 36 or 48-volt power system.


Drive Unit/Drive Motor
Crown’s transverse design drive unit with in-line gears has proven durability backed by a two-year warranty. An impressive 11.4 inch-diameter AC traction motor supplies ample power, without strain, even in the toughest applications.


An infinitely adjustable tilt steering wheel column allows better positioning and comfort. The steering column is offset to the left for proper positioning of left-hand steering.

The steering column is only four inches wide, improving visibility, and is sculpted to allow more knee room.


Chassis configuration designed to provide maximum capacity at elevated heights without compromising right-angle stack.


Crown’s unique full-circle power disc brakes feature large friction areas, improved responsiveness, and extended brake pad life. All are backed by a two-year warranty.

A brake override feature allows you to drive the truck with the brake engaged for critical load positioning.

Push-button parking brake reduces effort and improves efficiency.


A clear-view mast and low-profile chassis allow operators to clearly see the fork tips, enabling high visibility for improved safety and reduced damage. The ”Waterfall” design of the overhead guard increases strength and visibility when high-stacking. A low-profile cowl provides the best forward visibility in this class of truck.


Three performance levels can be selected to match application requirements or operator skill level and can be tuned to individual requirements.
