4x4x4LIFT CONCEPT rough-terrain forklift
Design Challenge for Advanced LIFT-TRUCK Technology International magazine (2015 issue)
Design Challenge brief: "Devise a rough-terrain forklift that will offer greater comfort, safety, productivity and performance than current designs."
The 4x4x4Lift concept is a forklift designed for rough-terrain and changing environments such as the ones linked to Construction duties.
Forklifts are usually seen on sites where the surrounding area of a building is undeveloped. Construction of buildings whose infrastructure has not been finished yet or it has not even begun can be usual. A typical situation would be also the construction of houses in the countryside. All these sites share the same typology: rough terrain and uneven ground. These characteristics call for a high performance rough-terrain forklift.
