What are the floor load capacities of buildings and sheds?

Storage buildings and garden sheds have been engineered with floors strong enough to hold typical lawn equipment, such as lawn mowers, riding mowers, garden tractors, and snow blowers.

It is important that the load is evenly distributed. Adding support (such as 6 – 9 mm plywood) can help distribute weight to store heavier items. Other conditions, such as foundation and weight distribution, can affect the floor loading capacity.
