2-29. LOAD HANDLING SYSTEM (LHS) (CONT).
When the lift-hook (10) has moved below level of flatrack hook-bar (8), set
transmission range selector (7) to Reverse (R) and back truck to flatrack
while aligning truck to flatrack as straight as possible (±10 degrees) with
lift-hook (10) in middle of hook-bar (8) until lift-hook contacts hook-bar.
Set transmission range selector (7) to Neutral (N).
Load must be evenly distributed on the pallet. Uneven load
distribution may cause LHS overload indicator to give false
signals and cause LHS to operate incorrectly. Damage to
equipment may result.
Slight misalignment (up to 10 degrees) will not prevent
hook from attaching to flatrack.
Move the joystick (1) to LOAD, engaging lift-hook (10) in hook-bar (8)
and lift slightly.
