7-16. LOADING/UNLOADING ISO CONTAINER WITH M3A1 CROP
FROM PLS TRUCK (CONT).
When loading a stack of CROPs with the PLS truck, due to built-in tolerances of ISO
inter-CROP locking devices, CROPs may become slightly cascaded, thus not providing a
vertical rear plane against the front wall of the container. If this happens, bump the stack
against the rear wall causing the stack to become orientated vertically.
(14) Connect the hook arm extension (7) to CROP (2), then lift and push M3Al CROP (2) into
ISO container (4) until rear bumpers (8) firmly contact front of ISO container and container
transport locks (9) aline with the shoring slots (10) on both sides of the ISO container door
(15) Drive PLS truck forward to clear ISO container (4) doors.
(16) Remove hook arm extension assembly (7) from PLS lift-hook (6). Store hook arm extension
in PLS BII storage.
