Commercial Vehicle Payload

Commercial Vehicle Payload

Payload capacity is the amount of cargo a completed vehicle can carry. Payload restrictions are one of the reasons that it is not possible to install any crane on any commercial vehicle.

Further consideration should be given to axle weights. Any load must be distributed correctly to ensure that individual axles are not overloaded.

Refer to the Association of Lorry Loader manufacturers and Importers Guidance for Lorry Loader Installers and Operators for more information about commercial vehicle payload and what considerations need to be made when specifying vehicle mounted lifting equipment.
