Rough terrain lift trucks are offered in a range of designs. These are available with 4 wheel crab steering, 2 wheel steering and 4 wheel steering.

A Brief History

Manitou initially launched the 4-wheel drive rough terrain forklift in the latter part of the 1950s. They were manufactured within Ancenis, France. Not long after, during the 1960s, the very first telescoping boom rough terrain lift truck was introduced. This particular model changed the way materials were handled within crowded construction sites, particularly places where traditional units of industrial products were not being used.

Different improvements have been made during the past thirty years on the telescoping boom and the automatic hydraulic frame. These new designs have greatly improved load capacity and stability. A lot of improvements of safety features have transformed this materials handling alternative into a vital device.

The rough terrain forklift is utilized in numerous key industries like farming, mining, construction and military applications. Certain models of rough terrain forklifts can be used on every surface, rough and paved. These units are called all-terrain lift trucks. This machine is capable of transporting things from inside of the factory to outside waiting transportation and vice versa.

Being outfitted with deep tread tires, helps ensure that the vehicle could be used in the majority of outdoor applications. They could successfully function on rough, uneven or slippery surfaces. The huge pneumatic tires can travel easily over mud, snow, rocks, wood, sand and ice.

These machines have changed the material handling business. They are here to stay. By keeping up your maintenance schedule, your forklift can serve you for numerous years to come. These types of equipment need to be taken care of and inspected every day, particularly when they are working outdoors in dirty and difficult applications.
