Forklift Maximum Capacity Calculator

Use the form below to calculate the approximate MAXIMUM capacity of your forklift with a new cargo load center. This is different than the residual capacity calculator.

And don’t miss out on our forklift online training at DollarTrainingClub.com

Please consider that a calculation according to this form will only show you an estimated residual capacity. Various factors influencing the residual capacity, such as extreme lift hights or load centre distances are not considered in this calculation. Please contact your forklift truck supplier for exact values. The nominal capacity of the attachment may not be exceeded. Find out below:
