What’s the excavator’s “tipping load”?

The tipping load is the point at which the equipment (usually an excavator) begins to tip off the ground when lifting a load. On most excavators, the tipping load is 50% of the operating capacity (or 25% of the operating capacity with the boom at max height). How high the bucket is raised changes how heavy of a load the machine can lift. Make sure you check out the specs section of each equipment rental to find machine lifting capacities.
