2-17. LOADING/UNLOADING ISO CONTAINER WITH M3 CROP USING FORKLIFT
Use forklift lateral movement during insertion to steer CROP into container, exercising
caution to ensure CROP remains laterally centered to prevent damage to sides of con-
Using forklift, lift front of CROP (2) and push it into the ISO container (3) until the CROP
rear bumpers (5) fully contact the inside front of the ISO container corner structure (6).
If CROP cannot be pushed into ISO container far enough to engage ISO container front cor-
ners because forklift (4) vertical structure (7) will not allow the CROP to go far enough
inside the ISO container or the forklift (4) otherwise contacts the container, lower the CROP
and reposition forklift (4) approximately 12 inches (30 cm) aft. Insert a 4" X 4" or larger
board (8) between the CROP and forklift (4), resting on the forklift tines, to provide suffi-
cient range for the forklift to push the CROP into the ISO container until the front corners are
fully engaged by the CROP bumpers.
Using forklift lateral movement, ensure CROP is centered laterally in door frame of container.
