Forklift operators who are insufficiently aware of the load they are lifting and the risks that come with exceeding the forklift-rated capacity not only compromise their safety but also place everyone working around them at serious risk.

Several factors can influence a forklift truck to become overloaded and these include load center, weight of load, lift height, and the type of load. The load center, which is the distance from the face of a fork to the center of gravity of the load plays a crucial part. The position of the load center can also vary depending on the type of load being lifted, for example, liquid loads or non-uniform loads.

Forklift operators should be competent in understanding the weight of the load. Combilift’s new product, the Combi Safe-Lift, is an anti-overload device that enables operators to avoid the pitfalls of potential overloading, which can have serious consequences if it occurs.

Managing Director Martin McVicar: “We offer the Combi Safe-Lift as an option at the moment but we believe that this simple and cost-effective system should become a standard option on all counterbalance trucks in the future. Fitting a straightforward device such as the Combi Safe-Lift is an effective way to reduce risks for the operator and other personnel, and also to avoid product damage as well as costly repairs.”
