New to the North American marketplace, Palfinger has announced its CR 55 4-way truck mounted forklift. The machine, with a lift capacity up to 5,500 pounds, allows operators to move materials over rugged terrain and through crowded work sites by turning all wheels sideways (crab steer). The unit has a short truck-mount overhang that allows easy and safe transport. The center seat positioning gives the operator easier on-and-off access, a more stable feel and a much better view for judging load centers or mounting the truck, according to the company. The assembly of the CR 55 4-way units will begin in September 2007 at the Crayler forklift assembly plant in Tiffin, OH.
