TM 9-2320-364-10 2-506      2-35.  LOADING AND UNLOADING CONTAINER (51 INCHES   (130 CM) TALL) TO PLS TRUCK USING LIFTING   FRAME (LF) (CONT). When loading or unloading containers on uneven ground (side slope up to 5 degrees and downgrades up to 20 percent), it may be necessary to apply truck service brakes to prevent truck roll away or severe injury or death could result. If LHS overload lamp illuminates but loading operation continues, operator is cautioned that LHS is nearing maximum capacity.  In this situation operator should notify supervisor if it appears payload is unevenly distributed in container or if container load exceeds 35,000 lbs. (15,890 kg).  If any of these conditions exist, payload must be redistributed or reduced or damage to equipment may result. Load must be evenly distributed in the container.  Uneven load distribution may cause the LHS overload indicator to give false signals and cause the LHS to operate incorrectly.  Damage to equipment may result. If LHS overload lamp illuminates and normal operation has stopped, return load to original position and notify supervisor to have payload redistributed or weight reduced.  Failure to comply may result in damage to equipment. Ensure parking brake is not applied before starting load sequence or damage to equipment may occur. NOTE The amount of time to load and unload is controlled by engine speed.  Engine speed can be increased to approximately 1500 rpm to reduce loading and unloading times. If container is extremely light or empty, it maybe necessary to place transmission range selector to Reverse (R) and allow truck to roll under container.
