LOADING/UNLOADING ISO CONTAINER WITH M3 CROP FROM PLS TRUCK
If the load is one pallet high or less, an alternative method to steps (8) through (10) may be
used, then proceeding with step (11). The alternate method is to pull the CROP until the rollers
are approximately 4 feet from the door and load the CROP directly from the ISO container onto
the PLS truck. This method requires caution to ensure the top of the load or web strap ratchets
do not contact the top of the ISO container door as the CROP is being removed from the ISO
container. Additionally, it may be necessary to stop loading, drive the PLS truck backward, and
resume loading the CROP, alternately to prevent the CROP from being pulled out of the ISO
container and onto the ground, which will damage the rear bumpers.
(12) If the M3 CROP on the bottom of the stack is M3 CROP (S/N SC09001 and up), re-stow
the HAE at the rear of the CROP in the underside stowage location; otherwise, re-stow the
hook arm extension in the PLS BII storage.
