Caterpillar Large Capacity Forklifts

History of Forklifts
Forklift technology provides the capacity to move heavy or bulky items easily across short distances. Forklifts are usually utilized in the every day operations of various kinds of businesses. Forklift design is always going through improvement as technology advances.

During the early 20th century, at the start of the industrial period in America, the forklift was invented. A company called Clark made the first truck tracker during the year 1917. It was developed for use inside Clark's very own plant, but when other individuals saw it they were impressed with this lifting equipment, even though it was just capable of raising loads a few centimeters off the ground. The next year, Clark began to market the trucks widely.

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

In order to handle the increased demand, more businesses moved into the material handling industry in World War II. Companies, like for instance Hyster, went from manufacturing other types of machinery to manufacturing lift trucks. The United States Armed Forces increased demand for forklifts for the reason of transporting military supplies to the frontlines. The demand for longer lasting electric models led to the development of forklifts that could last for eight hours.

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