BRAKE SYSTEM - The brake system on the CGC 40/50/55 series is simple and error-proof to use. The brakes are applied with a hydraulic servo-type power brake valve. The transmission also disengages when the parking brake is set, preventing the operator from driving against the brakes.
HYDRAULIC SYSTEM - The CGC 40/50/55 series hydraulic system uses a load-sensing flow control valve for steering to reduce heat build-up and operate with maximum horsepower. The main hydraulic valve incorporates adjustable flow controls for tilt and auxiliary functions. The sectional design allows for the easy addition of extra functions which simplifies service. The upright-mounted load lowering valve allows for controlled lowering, independent of engine speed.
STEERING AXLE - The rugged “Double Shear” design allows the steering axle to withstand impact without loosening or breaking.
OPERATOR COMPARTMENT - The fully adjustable, full suspension seat is contoured for support with a non-cinching, retractable seat. The tilt steering column adjusts to suit the operator. The fingertip control operation minimizes fatigue. The thick molded floor mat is also optimized for operator comfort by reducing vibration and noise level.
ENGINE - The field-proven 4.3L PSI - 4X LPG Engine is built for smooth, quiet operation and comes with an auto shut-down feature which helps you protect your investment in the event of excessive engine coolant, high transmission oil temperature, or low engine oil pressure. A visual warning light illuminates to warn operators of low oil pressure levels. You can access the engine compartment in less than 30 seconds with no tools required. The system can be diagnosed using an automotive-style malfunction light and fault codes. The engine has a computer-controlled fuel system, and has hardened exhaust and intake valves which lengthens the lifespan of the truck.
FRAME - No exposed seals or driveshafts to wear or collect debris. The modulated shift protection ensures smooth engagement and cushioned shifting. The common sump for the axle and transmission lube allows both to be cooled with the transmission cooling system. The inching valve allows for precisely controlled travel speeds during high speed lifting.
RUGGED UPRIGHT AND CARRIAGE - The nested I-channel allows space for cylinders, hoses, and chains, providing the operator with maximum visibility. The hydraulic cushioning valve’s silent staging reduces shock and vibration. The carriage has 6 shimmable, sealed, and canted rollers to maximize load distribution and reduce free play.
