edge of slopes

It goes without saying that the edges of slopes or loading bays are particularly dangerous places for forklift and should be negotiated with extreme care so that there is no chance of any of the truck's wheels going over the edge. This would obviously lead to serious overturning problems!

In addition, forklift trucks should NEVER turn across a slope. Once again, this action can cause the forklift to overturn.
