    TEXT VERSION OF SLIDE:

    Title: Stability Triangle - Figure 1
    Type: Picture Slide
    Content: Diagram of forklift illustrating:
    • A - Back of Forklift
    • B - Left side of Forklift
    • C - Right side of Forklift
    • Vertical Center of Gravity (Unloaded)
    • Center of Gravity of Vehicle and Maximum Load (Theoretical)
    • Notes:
      1. When the vehicle is loaded, the combined center of gravity (CG) shifts toward line B-C. Theoretically the maximum load will result in the CG at the line B-C. In actual practice, the combined CG should never be at line B-C.
      2. The addition of additional counterweight will cause the truck CG to shift toward point A and result in a truck that is less stable laterally.
