The Crown SC 5300 Series met approval within the company’s Fuel Cell Qualification Program that analyzes Crown electric forklifts for use with fuel cell packs. The truck designed for fuel cells maintains similar features and benefits presented by the standard SC 5300 model.

The 5300 Series is a member of Crown’s line of sit-down counterbalanced forklifts, which are equipped to handle multiple applications from dock work to transporting and stocking.

Air Liquide, a French gas company, was the first customer to install the Crown trucks in the European market and the first operation in France to use fuel cell-powered forklifts.

More than 20 of the company’s forklift models have been qualified for use with fuel cells.
