Lister Dursley England
The Lister Autotruck was a range of industrial trucks/Works trucks built by R.A. Lister & Co. of Dursley Gloucestershire England. Listers are best known for their range of single cylinder engines, but they also built multi-cylinder versions and other products
The Autotruck evolved from a requirement for a small works truck or tractor to pull components around the factory. Due to the nature of the site and the weights involved from heavy castings a powered truck was seen as the solution to using horses which were not ideal in a noise and dirty factory environment. The loads being too heavy for hand carts and space being too tight for small tractors within the workshops.
In 1954 Listers started producing an air cooled range of small diesel engines, which were seen as ideal for use in the Auto-Truck range. The LD1 single was offered as well as the LD2 twin cylinder. In fact the first of each was kept at the factory used as runabouts until the 1990s.
