Caterpillar Large Capacity Forklifts

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

The forklift was invented in the early 20th century at the start of the industrial period within America. A company called Clark made the first truck tracker during the year 1917. It was developed for use in Clark's own plant, but when others saw it they were impressed with this lifting machinery, even though it was only capable of lifting loads a few centimeters off the ground. The next year, Clark started advertising the trucks widely.

The early models were really 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 operate. Pallets were developed as surfaces that are stackable on which to move supplies. This permitted larger loads to be transported.

During World War II, more companies moved into the materials handling sector to handle increased demand. Companies, such as Hyster, went from producing various kinds of machinery to producing lift trucks. The U.S. Armed Forces increased demand for forklifts for the reason of bringing military supplies to the frontlines. The demand for longer lasting electric models resulted in the development of forklifts which can last for eight hours.

During the course of their history, forklifts have significantly changed. Businesses all around the world need forklifts to increase production and lower costs. Modern trucks are more comfortable and more productive and safer than their predecessors.
