Performance Versatility

In a busy work environment, the Crown RC 5500 excels, whether on the dock or in an aisle. It's designed to give the operator unmatched visibility, ultimate ergonomics and revolutionary ride control. Crown's exclusive FlexRide™ suspended floorboard eliminates much of the shock and vibration operators have to deal with everyday. In fact, many sit-down trucks can't match the reduced impact levels of the RC 5500 Series.
