For typical material handling
motors are selected based on loaded level conditions. This
is because very little time is spent on the grade. (For this
situation enter 0 for the percent grade.) If substantial time
will be spent on the grade or you want to evaluate the grade
performance, enter the grade percentage.
For on-road applications,
the vehicle may spend a fair amount of time on the grade and
this must be considered in motor selection. 3% is a typical
on-road grade percentage.
