Class Type Description
General Freight Loading Where the load is distributed, the weight of any single piece is not more than ¼ the capacity of the elevator and the load is handled on and off the car platform manually or by means of hand trucks.
Motor Vehicle Loading The freight elevator is used solely to carry trucks or passenger automobiles up to the rated capacity of the elevator.
Industrial Truck Loading A four-wheeled vehicle may be used to load and unload the elevator. The combined weight of the vehicle and the load cannot exceed the rated capacity and may be rolled onto the platform as a single unit.
Industrial Truck Loading During loading and unloading, max load on the platform may be up to 150% of the rated capacity. This enables you to use a forklift to load a car with freight weighing up to the rated capacity.
Other Forms During the loading and unloading process, the rated capacity must never be exceeded.
