INSTALLING THE LOADING RAIL CONNECTOR ASSEMBLY & HORIZONTAL INTERCONNECTORS
BETWEEN FPU-8 AND FPU-12 CONTAINERS
CHANNEL CROSS MEMBER
Work with two ground guides when connecting individual containers in a combination
system. Never move the FPU container while the ground guide is between the MHE fork
and the FPU container. Forklift operators must maintain visual contact with their ground
guides at all time. Serious injury or death could occur if the ground guide is pinned
between the MHE and the FPU container.
All tools identified in the following processes are Basic Issue Items (BII).
Select only a firm level road surface to connect the containers. Align the container ends to be
connected. Leave about four feet between the containers to allow working space for attaching the
Horizontal interconnectors should have both arms extended in the open position and the adjuster
screws positioned inboard toward each other to prevent their damage.
