In the early 1900s, a farmer named Lester Sears altered one of his farm tractors for industrial use. The "Model-L" that he made changed the way that materials were handled. This first truck which Lester made had features such as equal high-speed forward and reverse gears, rear-wheel steering, under-the-load front wheel drive and hydraulic lifting and tilting. This prototype was so innovative that it was utilized for 30 years before newer technology was finally utilized and took over. Though the "Model-L" has altered significantly ever since it was first made, it was full of new ideas which are still utilized these days. During the 1960s, Lester Sears sold his business, Towmotor, to Caterpillar. The new company was referred to as Cat Lift Trucks, that strives to provide the innovative services and uphold the values which Towmotor was recognized for.
