About this title


Weight: 1180g / 2.6lbs // The history of the forklift truck starts in the early years of the 20th century and is largely shaped by the ups and downs of the economy. The forklift in turn plays a role in industrial development. The story starts with a three-wheeled cart designed for internal use in a factory. A little later, a lifting mechanism is fitted and space is made for a driver at the rear of the truck. Thereafter, the most important changes take the form of technical improvements - companies are on the lookout for more efficient and effective ways of restricting storage costs and using the space available to its best advantage. And so the manufacturers begin to develop a compact and manoeuvrable lift truck, featuring electronic drive control, hydrostatic and automatic transmission, and joysticks. This process leads to the technologically advanced forklifts we see on such a massive scale in the world around us today.
