Normally, these machines are powered by an IC engine, usually diesel. This fuel choice gives the machinery the power it needs for speed and acceleration.

A Brief History

Manitou initially launched the 4-wheel drive rough terrain lift truck in the latter part of the 1950s. They were made in Ancenis, France. Not long after, in the 1960s, the first telescoping boom rough terrain lift truck was launched. This particular model transformed the way materials were handled within crowded construction sites, specially places where conventional models of industrial products were not being utilized.

Various improvements have been made in the last three decades on the telescoping boom and the automatic hydraulic frame. These updated designs have greatly enhanced load capacity and stability. Many enhancements of safety features have evolved this materials handling option into a really essential tool.

The rough terrain forklift is used in numerous key businesses such as mining, farming, military and construction applications. Certain models of rough terrain forklifts can be used on every surface, paved and rough. These units are called all-terrain forklifts. This machinery could transport things from outside waiting transportation to within the factory and vice versa.

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

4 wheel drive forklifts have helped to transform the market and are here to stay. By keeping up your maintenance schedule, your forklift can serve you for numerous years to come. These types of equipment have to be taken care of and checked on a daily basis, specially when they are working outdoors in dirty and difficult applications.
