OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS - CONTINUED
OPERATE LIFTING BOOM AND TOPHANDLER
used only when driving. In blackout mode, oscillation and tilt lock/unlock buttons do not illumi-
nate. However, these buttons will light up in service mode or when IR lights are on. With IR lights
on, container handling is permissible with proper night vision equipment.
Refer to Operation Under Unusual Conditions, WP 0006 00, for instructions on emergency lower-
ing of the boom in the event of engine shutdown.
a. It is essential that the operator know how to safely perform every RTCH container handling operation.
b. The following information will provide the operator with instructions to perform container handling operations using
the joystick to maneuver the lifting boom, tophandler, and forklift kit.
c. The RTCH-RT 240V2 tophandler is designed to move, stack, and unstack 20 to 40 ft (6.10 to 12.19 m) ISO contain-
d. With the forklift kit installed on the tophandler, the tophandler spreader controls will open and close the fork tines.
e. The RTCH-RT 240V2 ECU continuously monitors the boom angle, boom extension, and pressure in the hydraulic lift
cylinders. From this data, the computer calculates the actual load. This information is compared to the allowed load at
the current position. When 100 percent capacity is reached, the system cuts off and will not allow any more move-
ment, except to retract. When the load is moved into a safe operating range, system control is returned to the operator
f. During lifting operations, DO NOT exceed maximum lifting capability. The following chart indicates lift capacity in
relation to inches of boom extension. Note that as the boom is extended, the lift capacity is reduced.
