Parking. Tilt forks forward and lower

When parking the machine, lower the forks to the floor and tilt them forwards. If the lift chains are adjusted correctly they should go slightly slack. This reduces the strain on them. When lifting the forks up from the parked position, care should be taken not to "snatch" them as the chains may well be loose.
