Clark IC Forklifts

Clark IC Forklifts

The History of the Gas Forklift
During the early part of the 20th century, the Clark Equipment company manufactured the first gas powered forklift. Clark has led the industry in gas-powered forklifts ever since that time.

Beginning
During the year 1917, the Clark Equipment Company, situated in Buchanan, Michigan, was the maker of the first Tructractor. Employees fabricated the tractor so as to make it easier to move parts within the plant. When visitors came to the plant and saw the machine, they asked Clark to build more. The next year Clark sold eight Tructractors, and the year after that Clark began the Clark Tructractor Company within Buchanan, selling seventy five of the machinery that year.

Duat
In nineteen twenty three Clark manufactured a gas-powered tow tractor. Called the "Duat," this three-wheeled equipment later developed into the modern gas-powered forklift.

Improved Models
A gas-powered tow tractor with four wheels and could draw up to five thousand five hundred kilograms, the Clarktor was developed during the year 1927. In 1928 the Tructier model was built. It became the foundation for a modern line of gas-powered forklifts.

Forklifts which have internal combustion engines could run utilizing liquid propane, liquid natural gas, diesel or gasoline. These kind of forklifts need to be refueled either at on-site fueling stations or with gas canisters. Internal combustion forklifts cost less to purchase, but more to operate due to the cost of fuel. For loads over 6,800 kilograms, an internal combustion forklift is recommended.
