A Brief History

In the late 1950s the first 4-wheel drive rough terrain forklift was introduced by Manitou. They began their manufacturing process within Ancenis, France. Not long after, during the 1960s, the first telescoping boom rough terrain lift truck came about. This model changed the way supplies were handled in crowded construction sites, particularly places where conventional units of industrial products were not being utilized.

In the last three decades, different improvements have been made on the automatic hydraulic frame and on the telescoping boom. These updated designs have greatly enhanced stability and load capacity. A lot of enhancements of safety features have evolved this materials handling alternative into a vital device.

The rough terrain lift truck is used in numerous key businesses such as farming, mining, construction and military applications. Some units of rough terrain forklifts could be used on every surface, rough and paved. These units are referred to as all-terrain forklifts. This specific equipment is capable of transporting things from inside of the factory to outside waiting transportation and vice versa.

To guarantee that the forklift can be utilized in a huge range of outdoor applications, they are equipped with deep tread tires. They could successfully operate on rough, uneven or slippery surfaces. The large pneumatic tires could travel easily over wood, rocks, ice, sand, mud and snow.

4 wheel drive lift trucks have helped to revolutionize the market and are here to stay. By keeping up your maintenance schedule, your forklift could serve you for numerous years to come. These machinery must be inspected and taken care of every day, particularly when they are working outdoors in difficult and dirty applications.
