**Stability Triangle**

If you were to raise a lift truck up and look at its underside, you would see that the support points for the truck are located at points A, B, and C. The triangle formed between points A, B, and C is called the Stability Triangle. The lift truck will not tip over as long as the center of gravity remains inside the triangle. (The center of gravity is the point within a lift truck where there is equal weight all around it.) |
