I am interested to hear from anyone who has some advice for preventing tip over incidents of mobile equipment (industrial blenders etc). I am aware of acceptable push/pull forces to start and maintain motion but would like to see what other measures people can clarify:
What wheel size is needed for stability in terms of diameter when considering height/weight/CoG of the equipment?
Is there any calculation to assess the tip over point of equipment (something that could be incorporated into a risk assessment by trained assessors)?
Any other useful information/considerations would be gratefully received.
Many thanks in advance.
