    Default Turning radius of a forklift

    Howdy y'all,

    Here's one I haven't seen before: are there resources out there that show the turning radius of a forklift, including nosing and chording? If it differs between models, is there a resource for the different models?

    Hi Doug

    Please note I have *moved* this thread from the AutoCAD General forum to this one as I feel this particular Forum is a more appropriate place for such a topic.

    Thanks, Mike

    There is a program called AutoTurn that I believe has a template for a forklift. I'm usually using the aircraft templates so I'm not 100% positive, but they have a lot of vehicles.
    Still trying to find out "Who is a good boy?"

    It's in metric, but it has a pretty good group of turning radii

    I've played with AutoTurn before. From what I recall it is possible to create cutom vehicles, including wheel locations and determining which wheels articulate..

    I've found out a little more about what the engineer needs. What I want to find is the carrying capacity, fork length, and maneuverability. The engineer is trying to plan for an equipment room with some pieces that are 10'x12', and up to 20,000 lbs. Ultimately, I'd like to see a diagram of a forklift with the turn radius.

    BTW: never let an electrical engineer try architecture.

    Or vice versa.

    BTW, Doug. I have a 3d solid model of a generic FLT if you would like a copy.
