Full Answer

Lighter forklifts are ideally suited for maneuverability in tight spaces and for being mounted on the back of trucks for transportation. Heavier forklifts can carry heavier loads. For example, Rigger Lift claims that its model R160 is able to carry loads of up to 160,000 pounds.

In the United States, all forklifts are required by law to display a data plate stating their weight, model number, serial number, compliance and conformance designations and load capacity.
