Hello,

Is there anyway to get generic information for forklift trucks.  Say if 
the owner needs a 3000lbs capacity truck it will typically have a wheel 
spacing of 37" and for pneumatic tires a contact area of 10 in^2 and an 
axle load of 12500 lbs.  This would be handy for designing slabs on grade 
in warehouses where the owner does not know who he will get the trucks 
from, just that he needs some (and usually does not know the capacity 
needed).


Thanks, 

Mike
