History of Forklifts
The technology of forklifts provides the capacity to easily transport heavy or bulky objects across short distances. Forklifts are commonly utilized in the daily operations of different kinds of businesses. Forklift design is always going through improvement as technology advances.

In the early part of the 20th century, at the beginning of the industrial period within America, the forklift was invented. A company known as Clark manufactured the first truck tracker during the year 1917. It was developed for use within Clark's very own plant, but when other individuals saw it they were impressed with this lifting equipment, even if it can just raise loads only a few centimeters off the ground. The following year, Clark began to market the trucks widely.

The early models were very basic. By the year 1920, hydraulics was integrated into the design. In 1923, Yale Baker developed an electric powered model with a pinion and ratchet system which cost a lot less to utilize. Pallets were developed as surfaces that are stackable on which to transport supplies. This permitted larger loads to be moved.

During the Second World War, more companies moved into the materials handling sector in order to deal with increased demand. Businesses, such as Hyster, went from producing various types of machines to manufacturing lift trucks. The United States Armed Forces increased demand for forklifts for the reason of bringing military materials to the frontlines. The demand for longer lasting electric models resulted in the development of forklifts which could last for eight hours.

Forklifts have changed significantly over the course of their history. Businesses around the world require forklifts to reduce costs and increase production. Modern trucks are more productive and more comfortable and safer than their predecessors.
