CAT 4 Wheel Drive Forklifts

CAT 4 Wheel Drive Forklifts

Rough terrain vehicles are used mostly to handle stacks of wood, pallets of concrete blocks and other handling tasks on surfaces which are not paved. These machines are engineered to work in extreme environments.

Many rough terrain lift truck units are capable of carrying a few tonnes at the same time. These machinery are the ideal application for heavy work. Rough terrain lift trucks are offered in a range of configurations. These are offered with 4 wheel crab steering, 2 wheel steering and 4 wheel steering.

Typically, these machinery are powered by an IC engine, frequently diesel. This fuel choice supplies the machine the power it requires for acceleration and speed.

A Brief History

Manitou initially introduced the 4-wheel drive rough terrain lift truck during the late 1950s. They were manufactured within Ancenis, France. Not long after, during the 1960s, the first telescoping boom rough terrain lift truck was introduced. This unit changed the way supplies were handled in crowded construction sites, particularly locations where traditional units of industrial products were not being utilized.

Different improvements have been made during the last three decades on the telescoping boom and the automatic hydraulic frame. These updated designs have greatly improved load capacity and stability. Numerous improvements of safety features have changed this materials handling option into a vital device.

The rough terrain forklift is utilized in numerous key businesses like mining, farming, construction and military applications. Some models of rough terrain forklifts could be utilized on every surface, rough and paved. These units are called all-terrain lift trucks. This specific machine could transport items from outside waiting transportation to inside of the factory and vice versa.

Being equipped with deep tread tires, helps ensure that the vehicle can be utilized in the majority of outdoor applications. They can successfully operate on rough, uneven or slippery surfaces. The large pneumatic tires are able to travel easily over mud, snow, 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 lift truck can serve you for many years to come. These machines need to be taken care of and checked on a daily basis, particularly when they are working outdoors in difficult and dirty applications.
