All Terrain Forklifts

The first four-wheel drive rough terrain forklift was introduced in the late ‘50s by Manitou in France. All terrain (or ‘rough terrain’) vehicles are used primarily for work on rough surfaces to handle stacks of wood, pallets of concrete blocks and other handling jobs where there are no paved surfaces. Many heavy-duty all terrain forklifts can carry several tonnes at a time, making them the perfect application for heavy work. Rough terrain forklifts come in a variety of configurations with two-wheel steering, four-wheel steering and four-wheel crab steering. They are typically powered by an internal combustion engine – generally diesel, which gives this tough machine the power it needs for acceleration and speed.
