For this you will need the following:
– Original derated capacity of the forklift truck fitted with the required mast
– Fork thickness
– X dimension or load moment centre of the forklift truck
Plus all attachment details to include
– Capacity
– CofG (centre of Gravity)
– Required load centre
– Mass or weight of the attachment
– Lost load centre of the attachment
We can then use this information to calculate the derated capacity of the forklift truck to ensure it is safe to use with the attachment fitted
