Princeton PiggyBack®
PB50+

The all-new Princeton PB50+ Forklift is our medium-duty machine that offers 5000 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 PB50+ 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 PB50+ 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 PB50+ 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.
