1.1. Rated Load for the Bucket
2.1. Rated Load for the Logging Fork

------ WARNING! ------

Failure to comply to the rated load can cause possible personal injury or property damage. Review the rated load of a particular work tool before performing any operation. Make adjustments to the rated load as necessary for non-standard configurations.


Note: Rated loads should be used as a guide. Attachments, uneven ground conditions, soft ground conditions, or poor ground conditions have effects on rated loads. The operator is responsible for being aware of these effects.

Rated loads are based upon a standard machine with the following conditions:

  • proper lubricants

  • full fuel tank

  • enclosed ROPS

  • 80 kg (176 lb) operator

  • 26.5x25 14PR L-2 tires or equivalent

Rated loads will vary for different attachments. Consult your AVSpare dealer about the rated load for specific attachments.

The rated operating load is defined by SAE "J818" (May 1987) and by the ISO 5998 (1986) as 50% of the full turn static tipping load.

For North America, the rated operating load is defined by SAE "J1197" (February 1991) as 50% of the full turn static tipping load.

For Europe, the rated operating load is defined by CEN "474-3" as 60% of the full turn static tipping load.

Rated Load for the Bucket



Illustration 1g00104485

The dump clearance and the reach are given for each bucket at maximum lift height and at a 45 degree dumping angle. Dump clearance (A) is measured from the ground to the bucket edge. Reach (B) is measured from the front of the front tire to the bucket edge.

The following tables provide the rated operating loads for the standard machine configuration with a bucket.
