Princeton PiggyBack®
PB45

The all-new Princeton PB45 Forklift is our medium-duty machine that offers 4500 lbs of lifting capacity in a compact, yet powerful package. Customers delivering lighter building materials, roofing, insulation, tile and agricultural products will find this new forklift to be everything they need and more. The PB45 forklift has excellent stability. While weighing in at only about 5,000lbs, the machine feels sure footed and rugged. Engineers designed the machine to have excellent ground clearance AND a low center of gravity. Even more impressive, the machine was designed to have a shorter overall length. The PB45 can be configured to a 56” overhang which allows for mounting to even 48 foot-long trailers.

EPA Tier 4 Compliant Engine

Perhaps the biggest news with the new PB45 is the all new, technologically advanced, Tier 4 Final compliant engine. Offering higher horsepower, higher torque, improved fuel consumption, and greater service intervals; the new power plant is the greatest leap forward in technology on this new truck-mounted forklift.
