Retract mast on sideloader before moving


sideloader mast extendedDo NOT travel with the forks/mast extended.

Place the load securely on the bed of the sideloader using back tilt for stability.

Some loads, steel tubes are an example, can roll off the bed particularly when the machine makes a left turn. In cases like this the load should be chocked.

Travel with the forks just below bed height but so that the top of the mast is not extended.

For information on the testing of sideloader operators see the next slide.
