Crown Equipment Corp., New Bremen, Ohio, has unveiled the Crown SC 5200 Series of sit-down counterbalanced forklifts designed for multiple applications from dock work to transporting and stocking. The Crown SC 5200 Series features the three-wheel SC 5215 that has a 3,000-pound lifting capacity for applications requiring additional maneuverability to work in limited spaces such as 10-foot aisles.
Buyers can choose between the 36V or 48V AC systems, depending on application needs. These systems include Crown’s integrated AC traction and hydraulic systems, which has on-demand steering that lowers noise levels, a single hydraulic motor designed for improved efficiency, and faster lift speeds that can help maximize productivity.
Each model in the Crown SC 5200 Series includes more than 85 percent of Crown-manufactured components including tough drive units and powerful Crown engineered and manufactured AC motors and hydraulic controllers. The integration of Crown components optimizes power and enables the full-motor braking system of the e-GEN system, which eliminates the traditional friction brake.
The truck frame is equipped with Crown’s heavy-duty, 3/4-inch steel plate and I-beam mast rails that resist bending and twisting. Forklifts in the series support load capacities ranging from 3,000 to 4,000 pounds, depending on the model.
Users of the Crown SC 5200 Series stand to benefit from several ergonomic features, including easy-to-reach controls, the FlexSeat, which has suspension, responsive back flex and wider seat cushion; and enhanced visibility through operator-forward seating and mast configuration.
The Crown Access 1 2 3 comprehensive system control provides on-board intelligence that monitors and controls all systems of the Crown SC 5200 to ensure superior performance and reliability. The Intrinsic Stability System uses Crown Access 1 2 3 to proactively support safety and efficiency by monitoring performance based on the operating environment, such as the lift truck’s direction, speed, wheel angle and fork position. For example, the forklift automatically limits travel speeds based on lift height.
