Cornering Speed Control is one important element of Crown’s Intrinsic Stability System™. This feature automatically adjusts travel speed in turns during forward travel based on the weight on the forks, the angle of the steer tires and the speed of the truck.An infinitely adjustable tilt steering wheel column allows better positioning and comfort.The steering column is offset to the left so that the hand falls naturally into place on the steering wheel.


A cab forward design, clear view mast and low-profile cowl allow operators to clearly see the forktips and around the truck, enabling excellent visibility.
