Eugene Bradley Clark, who originally specialized in the production of wheels for cars, became the pioneer in the creation of a loader. The first prototype of a modern industrial loader, created in 1917, is not accidentally associated with the name of Clark.

Clark Equipment Co. assembled a three-wheeled platform cart, which was powered by a gasoline engine. This invention was intended for the transport of sand.

This event is conventionally considered the moment of birth of the first forklift. Due to imperfect steering, the turning circle was narrow, the loader was not very comfortable and rather dangerous. To turn left, the operator turned the steering wheel to the right, and to turn right to the left.

The device was not equipped with a brake, so the easiest way to stop was to crash into something.


During the First World War, the military saw in the forklifts an excellent means of transporting various explosives, as a result of which the army ordered the company three-wheeled forklifts. For this, it was decided to open a whole production line, and later a plant was built. Since 1921, hydraulic lifting systems began to be installed on three-wheeled models, and from 1923, hydraulic cylinders, which ensured the tilt of the mast.

A year later, the company released the famous Clarke transmission. From that moment on, the technical evolution of forklifts reached a new level - a telescopic lifting device began to be installed on the model. The innovation was adopted by the manufacturers, and already in the 30s the chain and winch mechanisms were replaced by hydraulics.


By the beginning of the Second World War, Clark had become a well-deserved market leader. At least 90 percent of all tractors and loaders used by the US Army during the war were manufactured by this company. In 1942, the first electric forklift rolled off its assembly line. By the way, in the same year, Eugene Clark died at the age of 60 from pneumonia, leaving behind a firm with an annual sales of 77 million dollars.

The Clark company, which was founded in 1903, began its history as a manufacturer of spare parts for automobiles. This continued until 1917, when the company invented the world's first industrial forklift, thereby setting the standard for the modern prototype. Since then, for more than 80 years, the company has been a technology setter in the global material handling industry, constructing the first tractor-trailer in Buchanan, Michigan in 1917.

A year after the debut, eight tractors saw the light, and two years later - already 75 Tructractor tractors. By the way, in the same year the first Tructractor was sent to France. This marked the start of the export. 1921 saw the release of the Trucklift model, with a payload ranging from 2 to 5 tons.


Building on the success of its predecessor, a year later, the new Truclift was launched. Two years later, the Duat was introduced to the market: a tricycle capable of lifting 750 kg. In addition, the Tructractor and Truclift models are now being built at the firm's new plant in Battle Creek, Michigan. In 1926, a new model was introduced: the Clarkat tow tractor, capable of supporting weights of up to 1200 kg.

It replaced the Duat, which could only carry 700 kg. By the way, a year later the market was replenished with a new Clarktor tow tractor. It was used to tow planes and trailers. 1928 was famous for the Tructier, the world's first internal combustion forklift. 10 years later, the Carloader, the world's first compact forklift In spite of the war, the Electric Clipper, Carloader and Utilitruc were released in 1942, and in 1943 the first Planeloader pneumatic powered forklift. In the first post-war year, the Yardlift 40 was released. became the first of a line of loaders with pneumatic tires. It could be used both outdoors and indoors.


1948 was famous for the release of the innovative Dynatork part. It is an electromagnetic transmission device between the combustion engine and the transmission. It replaces the dry clutch that was previously used in forklift trucks. In addition, this year Clark Equipment entered into a licensing agreement with Tutt-Bryant Limited in Sydney, Australia, and two years later with Germany's Schultz-Stinnes of Essen.

By 1951, the Hydrolift and Electrolift forklift trucks entered the market for the first time. Released as Powrworker, the Electrolift trucks were battery-powered electric trucks. 1956 saw the development of a new line of Clarklift forklifts.
