To meet the increased demand for lift trucks to handle 20 to 40 tons, Clark Equipment Company's Industrial Truck Division has introduced a new line of trucks consisting of six models with capacity ratings from 40,000 to 80,000 pounds. The trucks, largest of Clark's C500 Y Line, have pneumatic tires and are diesel powered. They feature full-reversing powershift transmission, hydrostatic power steering and planetary axles. Clark has also introduced a high-mounted expandable container spreader, with a rate capacity of 70,000 pounds and a 48-inch load center. It has been designed to handle 20- and 40-foot containers and features automatic lock stops. With a 266-inch upright, the unit allows 9' 6" containers to be stacked three-high.
