Abstract : The Technical Information Report describes a 4,000-pound-capacity rough-terrain forklift truck that is powered by an 85-horsepower compression-ignition engine. Its 48-inch-diameter, 20-inch-wide high-flotation tires, low weight of 8,500 pounds, center-articulated chassis, and pivot-frame power steering make the vehicle suitable for operation on rough terrain, in mud, in sand, in snow, and on slopes. Its maximum speed is 35 mph. A simple crane kit is provided for loading and unloading high-sided cargo vehicles for which forks cannot be used. The forklift truck is 17 feet 4 inches long, 6 feet 8 inches wide, and 8 feet 6 inches high. For transportation purposes, the length can be reduced to 14 feet 1 inch and the height to 6 feet.
