A Forklift, the most common type of Powered industrial trucks[1]

Powered industrial trucks (P.I.T.) were fairly small trucks used for hauling, stacking and unstacking, and moving pallet loads.

They were usually used in warehouses and other places where such work is needed. They were capable of moving loads with their hydraulic "forks"; transporting a load from one location to another. Most companies had policies involving the operation of such vehicles and only those over the age of eighteen were typically allowed to operate one.
