 French term or phrase: Contraintes de pente / Contraintes de dévers Contraintes de pente avant et arrière - 35% Contraintes de dévers gauche et droit - 20% These are what needs to be taken into account during transport of the machine. Are these 'gradient stress' and 'slope stress'?
 stress due to longitudinal and transverse road gradient Explanation:due to inclination of the road (longitudinal and transverse direction) a transported item will be subject to increased stress (either the support or the subject itself). The percentages are not clear: they might be the relative increase of the stress to be expected with respect to the completely level situation. Good luck!

Explanation:
Yes, contrainte can be stress or limitation.

But is it stress or maximum gradient that is the corrext term. It seems from your text and indications of percentage, that it is not the effect (the slope stress due to the slope gradient) but that it is the slope gradient top limit accepted when transporting the machine.

I would say maximum slope gradient

Contrainte de devers is the same but in in the axis transversal to the road.This is the gradient of the slope from side to side of the road, like when the road is not flat.

"Se déverser": a vehicle falling/rolling to the side.

See drawings on ref.regarding driving a 4x4 on sidesloping roads.
