The answer is actually quite simple, and it all comes down to one thing: physics. In this article, we’re going to explain how forklift stability works and how to stay safe when lifting heavy loads. Counterweight Physics teaches us that stability occurs when a force is balanced with an equal, opposite force. Forklifts attest to this theory by countering the heavy weight at the front with an equal or greater weight at the…
