**Which dimension defines the load center?**

A load center is the horizontal distance from the vertical face of the forks to the center of gravity of the load. As a general rule, load center is 24″ from the face of the forks (the center point of standard 48” x 48” pallet).

**What dimension defines the load center?**

**How do you calculate forklift load center?**

You can determine the Maximum Load Moment for any forklift by multiplying the weight rating by the center load distance state on the data plate. In the example we used above, it would be a 5,000 lb capacity multiplied by a 24 inch load center (5,000 x 24), which gives you a Maximum Load Moment of 120,000 inch pounds.

#### What is load Centre distance?

In working with forklifts, the concept of “load center distance” can be described as “the distance from the vertical face of the forklift tines to the load’s center of gravity.” For the purpose of this article, we will say the forklift in question is a counterbalance, and the load center distance it is rated to is …
