A Brief History

In the late 1950s the first 4-wheel drive rough terrain lift truck was launched by Manitou. They started their manufacturing process within 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 congested construction sites, especially locations where traditional models of industrial products were not being used.

Different improvements have been made during the past three decades on the telescoping boom and the automatic hydraulic frame. These modernized designs have greatly improved load capacity and stability. Many improvements of safety features have changed this materials handling option into a really important device.

The rough terrain lift truck is used in many key industries like mining, farming, construction and military applications. Some units of rough terrain lift trucks can be used on every surface, paved and rough. These models are called all-terrain lift trucks. This equipment is capable of transporting objects from within the factory to outside waiting transportation and vice versa.

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

4 wheel drive lift trucks have helped to transform the market and are here to stay. By keeping up your maintenance schedule, your lift truck could serve you for numerous years to come. These kinds of machines have to be taken care of and checked every day, especially when they are working outdoors in difficult and dirty applications.
