LOADING/UNLOADING ISO CONTAINER WITH M3 CROP USING FORKLIFT
Forklift must be capable of lifting gross weight of loaded CROP. Failure to comply
may result in damage to equipment or severe injury or death to personnel. Do not
drive a forklift on the CROP deck; doing so exceeds point load capability of the deck.
One M3 CROP weighs 3,800 lbs (1,724 kg) and the M3 CROP (S/N SC09001 and
up) weighs 3,730 lbs (1,692 kg). Six M3 CROPs weigh 22,800 lbs (10,342 kg) and
six M3 CROPs (S/N SC09001 and up) weigh 22,380 lbs (10,152 kg). Gross weight of
a fully loaded CROP is 36,250 lbs (16,443 kg). Ensure all personnel stand clear of
CROP when CROP is being moved. Failure to comply may result in severe injury or
death to personnel.
Attempting to load a CROP in ISO container requires extreme care to prevent dam-
age to equipment. Clearance between the inside of ISO container and each side of
CROP is unusually close.
Always lift a stack of CROPs by connecting to the bottom CROP. Failure to comply
may result in severe injury to personnel or damage to equipment.
Forklifts are required to have forks a minimum of 68 in. (173 cm) in length. Failure to
comply may result in severe injury to personnel or damage to equipment.
Open ISO container doors (1) and secure in open position.
