functions will not operate.
Position truck on level ground so all loading and unloading can be done
from one position.
Put transmission range selector (1) in Neutral (N) position and pull
PARKING BRAKE control knob (2) out.
Hydraulic selector switch must be in OFF position before
moving selector switch to prevent equipment damage.
