Capacity plates. Load centre considerations

capacity plates load centreLoad centres on a forklift truck were discussed earlier in this presentation. The load centre on this machine is shown in the horizontal column at the bottom of the capacity plate. Notice that the smallest load centre, 500 mm, is the standard load centre that is used on most forklift trucks. The other load centres, up to 1000 mm, are used when the operator of the truck is forced to exceed the normal load centre such as when undercutting loads or using fork extensions etc. Notice how the truck's capacity reduces as the load centre increases.
