I am looking for a field calculation/test example to determine the load capacity of forklift truck. Also, I would like to know how to reduce the load capacity due to side-shifter instalation, and/or due to facing a non standard mast (higher). Asme/As std's suggest about 4 tests for this purpose but I could not calculate more than 2 of them ( i do not have the c.g info belong to the above new configurations-  i.e. unladen FLT mast up).

I agree with Dan. Any attachment you place on your lift truck, whether it is a carton clamp, roll grab, or a side shifter should have a capacity plate attached to your lift truck stating the specifics, which is available from the manufacturer.

Lets be realistic.

Theoretical calculations are one thing.

" out in the field " as you say is another.

There you must allow for stupid operators, Bad loads , uncertain ground conditions Etc Etc

Anybody who does not allow 25% for those little extra's can expect trouble.
