Engine speed must be at idle before using hydraulic selector
switch, or damage to equipment may result.
To avoid equipment damage, ensure that main frame cylinders
do not complete full extension while operating at engine speeds
Manual mode is used mainly in event of a failure of control
electrical system. Greater care must be exercised during
operation of MANUAL mode for correct cycle of events to
occur or damage to equipment may result.
If LHS had previously been used in Manual Mode and not
completely stowed in Auto Mode, the hook arm cylinders must
be completely extended or the LHS must be completely stowed
using Auto Mode before the flatrack can be loaded. Failure to
comply may result in damage to the truck and flatrack.

straight as possible with lift-hook (10) to the middle of hook-bar (8).
