Whenever an attachment is added to a lift truck, its weight and thickness reduce the overall capacity of the lift truck/attachment combination. This calculator allows you to estimate your new net capacity. Any actual down-rated capacity must be obtained from the lift truck manufacturer.
Note: The capacity shown on the attachment nameplate is a structural rating only and may not necessarily reflect the actual lifting ability of the truck/attachment combination.
Enter the necessary measurements into the form and then click the Calculate button to reveal your new estimated net-capacity.
Net Capacity = [R(F+LC) - W(D+HCG)] / (D+T+L)
