RE: Fork-lift Trucks

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Mike,
By the way,  the military has a very good Technical Manual, "Concrete Floor
Slabs on Grade Subjected to Heavy Loads", available on line at
http://www.usace.army.mil/inet/usace-docs/armytm/tm5-809-12/   It covers
designing for forktruck loads (but doesn't give detailed data on the
forklift trucks themselves).
