“Understanding a forklift’s capacity is crucial for many reasons,” explains [CONTACT NAME, TITLE]. “Not only is it important from a safety standpoint but exceeding a lift truck’s capacity by even a small amount can cause costly wear and tear on the equipment. Our system ensures that owners and operators have the right information for the safest, most practical operation of their equipment.”

Many forklift operators rely on general capacity guidelines provided by manufacturers, but numerous factors affect a lift truck’s true capacity. Attachments can add weight and reduce capacity, and can also affect balance in a way that impacts how much weight a lift truck can lift. Operating height, mast type and fork size, and numerous other features also affect capacity. Accounting for these variables is the only way to be sure of a specific forklift’s true lifting capacity.
