What is the weight of the cargo you want to handle?

The weight and size of the load are crucial for selecting the correct forklift capacity. Therefore, check the maximum weight of the loadyou will need to handle.
Note that other factors, such as length of the load and required lifting height, also affect the capacity of the forklift. If the load is longer than 1 meter to the front of the forks, this will reduce the load capacity of the forklift, and a higher capacity forklift is needed. We will be happy to consult you.

What is the maximum overall height of the forklift?

Overall height of the truck is also important. Check how high are your doors, gates, ceilings or other places, where the truck is supposed to drive and where problems with height may occur.
An important element is the so-called free lift. If the forklift is equipped with free lift, then overall height of the mast will not be changing, while lifting up to approximately 1.5 m.
