Clark IC Forklifts
The History of the Gas Forklift
The Clark Equipment Company made the very first gas powered forklift in the early 20th century. Since that time, Clark has led the industry in gas-powered forklifts.
Situated in Buchanan, Michigan State, the Clark Equipment Company was the maker of the first Tructractor during 1917. Workers fabricated the tractor so as to make it easier to move parts within the plant. When visitors came to the plant and saw the machinery, they asked Clark to manufacture more. The next year Clark sold eight Tructractors, and the year after that Clark began the Clark Tructractor Company within Buchanan, selling 75 of the machinery that year.
During the year 1923 Clark manufactured a gas-powered tow tractor. Named the "Duat," this three-wheeled machine later developed into the modern gas-powered forklift.
A gas-powered tow tractor with four wheels and can draw up to 5,500 kilograms, the Clarktor was created during 1927. During the year 1928 the Tructier model was manufactured. It became the foundation for a modern line of gas-powered forklifts.
Forklifts which function on diesel, gasoline, liquid propane or liquid natural gas have internal combustion engines. These type of forklifts should be refueled either at on-site fueling stations or with gas canisters. Internal combustion forklifts cost much less to buy, but more to operate due to the cost of fuel. For loads over 6,800 kilograms, an internal combustion forklift is recommended.
