The first pickup truck to ever employ a motor was created in 1896 by Gottlieb Daimler. He had been an auto pioneer from Germany, who additionally built the first taxi, as well as the first motorcycle. Going forward, his truck had only two gear speeds, and for reverse, one, while 4hp was most of the power the engine could produce. The hauling of merchandise for the industry was the first purpose trucks were built for, and for every new application that followed a truck had to be specially developed.
Throughout wartime, soldiers and ammunition ended up being moved from one place to another by trucks, and the injured soldiers were also transported as well. Trucks were also built for logging, agriculture and also other commercial uses - even for carrying concrete while it was being mixed and delivering it to construction sites ready for use. A huge truck was invented later, that only had one particular purpose, and that was to haul other cars and trucks to where they were going to be sold, from where they had been manufactured. Nowadays you can see a truck designed and customized for nearly every different need you can think of.
Farmers now have multiple uses for their trucks; today they're going to be carrying supplies, tomorrow it could be cattle, and the day after it could be a farm tractor. Landscapers and lawn maintenance businesses make use of trucks a lot. Generally, these companies have a lot of equipment, and also materials, to carry to a job, so they also need trailers which are hooked up to the rear of trucks. Trucks are required with the business sphere, but also in the leisure-time arena. Lots of people like to go boating, and they need something big to haul that big boat. Furthermore, every one of the things that go along with boating needs the back of a truck to carry them. Many car producers also make trucks, and trucks come in just about any size, shape or color imaginable, and at different prices.
You will find trucks that only hold two or three people, and five can be seated comfortably in the large extended cab trucks. You can find plain-jane basic trucks, and you can obtain those with all the bells and whistles. Four wheeling is big for a lot of people, so they need to have a truck that will get them through bogs of mud along with rough terrain. People who do these things, as a rule, have a truck that comes with 4-wheel drive. For normal people, who don't drive in such places, the standard 2-wheel drive is usually quite sufficient for their needs.
Owning a truck has a certain allure about it, but before you get one be certain about why you want a truck and what use it will be put to, and whether you can afford one. Think about the needs of the family should you have one; a truck is usually not going to be the best choice for the family car. Yet a truck is nice to have to carry things you otherwise couldn't. Decide on what you are able to afford, and don't go beyond it when you get to buy a truck.
