2-36. LOADING AND UNLOADING CONTAINER (48 INCHES
(122 CM) TALL) TO PLS TRUCK USING LIFTING
FRAME (LF) (CONT).
On steep downgrades, contact is possible between the lifting
frame lower legs and the rear sliders during empty LHS cycles.
If contact appears likely, switch hydraulic selector to MAN H.A.
and retract (LOAD) hook arm a few inches. Switch hydraulic
selector to MAN M.F. and retract the mainframe until the lifting
frame clears the rear sliders. Return hydraulic selector to AUTO
and continue (LOAD) operation. Failure to comply may result
in damage to equipment.
Never drive with LHS NO TRANS lamp illuminated. An
illuminated lamp means that the LHS is not fully stowed.
Failure to comply may result in damage to equipment.
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
