Don’t leave it up to instinct
Tipping over a counterbalance forklift truck is dangerous; the driver can be severely injured and the cargo damaged. It’s not easy for the driver to stop the truck from tipping over, particularly if different, unknown loads are regularly being transported. To guarantee their safety, the driver would have to know and be able to precisely assess the load weight, the load center distance, and the required lift height. That is not realistic. In practice, it often comes down to instinct. In both the Active and Select versions, the LSP has a range of sensors that measure data such as lift height, tilt angle, and load weight at various locations on the truck. These key values are displayed on a monitor in the driver’s cabin. The driver no longer has to guess the weight of the transported goods or the current lift height, but can now use them to keep an eye on the level of danger.
