Caterpillar Large Capacity Forklifts

Caterpillar Large Capacity Forklifts

History of Forklifts
The technology of forklifts provides the capacity to easily transport heavy or bulky objects across short distances. Forklifts are commonly utilized in the daily operations of various types of businesses. Forklift design is always undergoing improvement as technology advances.

During the early part of the 20th century, at the beginning of the industrial era in America, the forklift was invented. A company called Clark manufactured the first truck tracker during 1917. It was developed for use in Clark's very own plant, but when other people saw it they were impressed with this lifting machinery, even though it could just lift loads only a few centimeters off the ground. The following year, Clark began to sell the trucks widely.

The early models were very basic. By 1920, hydraulics was integrated into the design. During 1923, Yale Baker developed an electric powered model with a ratchet and pinion system which cost a lot less to use. Pallets were developed as surfaces which are stackable on which to move supplies. This allowed bigger loads to be transported.

During the Second World War, more businesses moved into the materials handling industry to be able to deal with increased demand. Businesses, like Hyster, went from manufacturing various types of machines to manufacturing lift trucks. The U.S. Armed Forces increased demand for forklifts for the purpose of transporting military materials to the frontlines. The demand for longer lasting electric models resulted in the development of forklifts which could last for eight hours.

During the course of their history, forklifts have considerably changed. Industries around the world require forklifts to increase production and reduce costs. Modern trucks are safer, more productive and more comfortable than their predecessors.
