When buying a counterbalanced truck, you have to be sure the truck can handle your load. A truck's rated lift capacity is how heavy it can lift during perfect conditions. Within daily operations, the shape and weight of your load can differ, which impacts the actual lift capacity.
To make sure you buy the right truck for your operations we've created this guide, where we'll tell you what you need to know about a truck's residual capacity by answering these questions:
- What is the difference between nominal capacity and residual capacity of a forklift?
- What is a load centre and how does it influence load handling?
- How much can a forklift actually lift?
- How do you determine the right capacity for your forklift?
