Complete Powerpoint slide presentation for forklift instructors. Ready made training course

Forklift stability - longitudinal and lateral

forklift truck stability

Forklift stability can be a complicated subject particularly when one includes stabilty testing and stability deration calculations. For that reason, I have divided the subject into five "bite" sized chunks that should be easy to swallow. They are:

Longitudinal Stability

Lateral Stability

Longitudinal Stability Testing

Lateral Stability Testing

Stability De rating Calculations

I have written these in a easy to follow form and the pages are not designed for engineers and the like but can be useful for instructors when they are conducting the theory sessions on forklift training courses.
