- Jul 15, 2018 -

1. Rated lifting weight: refers to the maximum lifting weight of the forklift when the cargo center of gravity on the cargo fork is located at the specified distance of the loading center. Unit (kg)

2. Load center distance: refers to the specified distance between the center of gravity of the cargo and the front of the vertical section of the cargo fork.

State regulation :Q(represents carrying weight)< 1t is 400mm; When 1 is less than or equal to Q < 5, it is 500mm.

When 5 is less than or equal to Q is less than or equal to 10, it is 600mm. When 12 is less than or equal to Q, it is 900mm. When 20 is less than or equal to Q is less than or equal to 42, it is 1250mm.

3. The maximum lifting height: refers to the level of forklift in solid ground, door frame and vertically under rated lifting weight of goods, goods fork can maximum lifting height - goods fork on the plane to the vertical distance of the ground.

4. Free lifting height: refers to the maximum height that the cargo fork can leave the ground without changing the height of the door frame.

5. Minimum turning radius: refers to the distance between the instantaneous center and the outermost side of the vehicle body when the steering wheel of the forklift is turned to the limit position and the turning motion is made at the lowest stable speed.

6. Portal frame inclination: refers to the maximum Angle at which the portal frame of a no-load forklift can swing forward or backward from its vertical position.

7. Wheelbase: the vertical distance from the center of the front bridge to the center of the rear bridge.
