The total weight of a forklift will depend on what type of forklift one is dealing with. However, the general rule of thumb is that the weight of the forklift with be twice the amount of what it is able to lift. For example, of the forklift is rated to lift up to 5,000 pounds, then the forklift itself will have a weight somewhere near 10,000 pounds. There will never be a situation when the forklift weighs less than the load it can lift. Knowing how much a forklift weighs is important when one needs to be transported via a flatbed truck.
