Your Sit-Down Rider
Your sit-down rider truck lifts and stacks loads. It is also designed to move loads over long distances.
YOUR LIFT TRUCK IS NOT AN AUTOMOBILE
With a load it may weigh more than 4 automobiles, and the steer wheels are in the rear instead of the front.
FORK FUNCTIONS, STANDARD AND OPTIONAL
Standard fork or hydraulic functions are Raising and Lowering the forks plus Tilting the mast. Accessories such as Sideshift or Carton Clamp may also be included. Your company has decided which features are needed in your work area and should train you how to use them.
HOW TO DRIVE YOUR TRUCK
Sit down, fasten your seat belt and pull it snug. Adjust the seat and steering wheel to their most comfortable positions. Keep your hands on the controls and your entire body inside the operator area. Look in the direction you are going.
GIVE YOUR BODY A BREAK
Take advantage of stop time. Flex your arms and legs. Staying alert will help you be a better and safer driver.
BUILT TO STANDARDS
This truck was designed and built to current industry and government standards and guidelines. For more
information see the following:
WHAT IS YOUR TRUCK CAPACITY?
Capacity is the load (including pallet or container that can be lifted to a given height at a given load center. See the capacity plate on your truck. Make certain you use the correct units of measure.
WHAT IS LOAD CENTER?
Load center is the distance from the load backrest or vertical face of the fork to the center of an evenly distributed load.
LOADS MUST BE EVENLY DISTRIBUTED
Your truck could tip over, in any direction, if a load is shifted to the front or side of a pallet or container.
Managing the Vehicle Damage Repair Process
In the event that your vehicle requires damage repairs, GM recommends that you take an active role in its repair. If you have a pre-determined repair facility of choice, take your vehicle there, or have it towed there. Specify to the facility that any required replacement collision parts be original equipment parts, either new Genuine GM parts or recycled original GM parts. Remember, recycled parts will not be covered by your GM vehicle warranty.
Insurance pays the bill for the repair, but you must live with the repair. Depending on your policy limits, your insurance company may initially value the repair using aftermarket parts. Discuss this with your repair professional, and insist on Genuine GM parts. Remember if your vehicle is leased you may be obligated to have the vehicle repaired with Genuine GM parts, even if your insurance coverage does not pay the full cost.
If another party’s insurance company is paying for the repairs, you are not obligated to accept a repair valuation based on that insurance company’s collision policy repair limits, as you have no contractual limits with that company. In such cases, you can have control of the repair and parts choices as long as cost stays within reasonable limits.
CAPACITY PLATE INFORMATION
The capacity plate is on the overhead guard. It contains:
READING YOUR CAPACITY PLATE
Capacity may be reduced as lift height increases. For example: On the sample plate, 1815kg (4000 lb) can be lifted to 4775mm (188 in). But above 4775 (188), to 5230 (206), capacity is reduced from 1815 (4000) to 1745 (3850).
Capacity is reduced as load center increases.
For example: On the sample plate, 1815kg (4000 lb) can be lifted if the load center is 600mm (24 in). But if the load center is increased to 750mm (30), capacity is reduced from 1815 (4000) to 1450 (3200).
Caution: You may not increase capacity if load center is less than shown on your capacity plate.
Your truck will be equipped with either one or two service brake pedals.
2 PEDAL OPTION
The smaller left pedal is the inching/brake pedal. Push the pedal all the way down for full braking. Partially depressing the pedal while applying the accelerator will give you controlled slower travel, or “inching”.
The large center pedal provides full braking only. When fully depressed, both pedals provide the same degree of braking.
1 PEDAL OPTION
The large pedal is the inching/brake pedal. Push
the pedal all the way down for full braking. Partially depressing the pedal while applying the accelerator will give you controlled slower speed, or “inching”.
Caution: On an incline the truck may roll before drive engages.
Note: With either pedal option, you must use full engine speed (with the inching/brake pedal applied) to obtain maximum performance for any hydraulic operation.
