A Smart Approach
Crown’s proactive system technologies
are designed to improve operator safety
in real-world applications, boosting
productivity and confidence.
The Crown Intrinsic Stability
System is engineered to minimize the
causes of unstable conditions. This
complements safe, efficient operating
practices that build the operator’s
confidence, rather than test it.
System-controlled hydraulic speeds
The hydraulic system automatically
limits tilt and side-shift speed to increase
vehicle stability and operator confidence.
Travel speed control
The RC 5500 Series automatically controls
travel speeds and braking based on fork
height and other operating conditions.
Cornering speed control
The RC 5500 Series knows the direction
of travel, angle of steer wheels and speed
of the truck. It uses this information to
automatically limit travel speed in turns.
When forks and mast are tilted more
than two degrees forward, a tilt interlock
helps keep forks from raising above free
lift. More tilt at higher levels could tip the
Crown lift truck testing uses real-world
forces to ensure optimal product design.
This explains why the RC 5500 Series
has a counterweight that exceeds ANSI
Ramp speed control
The intelligent control system maintains
the truck at a constant speed on a ramp,
so it won’t gain or lose momentum. It also
automatically holds a truck stopped on an
incline until the operator initiates forward
or reverse travel.
