For a Toyota Forklift, there is not a weight limit for forklift operators. However, optional forklift features such as retractable seat belts, adjustable seat positions and tilt columns can accommodate various body types.

Federal Law Regulation

Physical size may limit some forklift operators from operating specific forklifts. This is due to federal law regulation ANSI B56 5.2.4 which states an operator cannot have any body parts outside the operator compartment. To ensure safer operation, a forklift operator must fit within the confines of the equipment.
