1. Things to Keep in Mind While Determining Forklift Capacity Do you know how the capacity of a forklift is determined? The weight which can lift by a forklift is called as then forklift capacity. This value depends on various factors such as the length of forklift attachment, etc. Determining forklift capacity- • Load center- While determining forklift capacity, the first factor which has to consider is the vertical and horizontal load centers. Forklift center of gravity will be affected more if the load gets taller, longer or wider. If the weight is unevenly distributed in the load, then the load center will also get affected. • Load manipulation, lift, and tilt- These three things are essential to understand the forklift capacity. After determining the forklift’s center of gravity, lifting, tilting or load manipulation can also be responsible for the variation of a forklift’s maximum capacity. • Attachment thickness- The thickness of the forklift attachment states the amount by which a load is moved from the vehicle’s fork face. The weight of the attachment has a very significant role in determining forklift capacity. The more the weight is, the less is the load weight that the forklift is able to support. • Types of tires and tread widths- These are two crucial things to keep in mind while determining forklift capacity. Dual tire configuration usually increases the capacity of a truck. This happens because of the wider stance, which results in increasing the forklift’s stability triangle size.
