Operation

  • The product must be positioned on level ground. (We would recommend that two people carry out the assembly of the unit, beginning with the removal of all packaging. Lift and position the back guard into an upright position aligning all 4 holes with the platform and fix the 4 (M12) Bolts supplied into the four slotted holes and tighten the bolts using the washer and nyloc nuts provided. This now ensures that the Access Platform is ready for use).
  • Position the forks to the correct distance apart to locate into fork pockets.
  • Remove fork pocket heel pins from access platform and drive forks into fork pockets.
  • Insert fork pocket heel pins directly behind the heel of fork and attach safety lynch pin into hole provided.
  • Attach your safety harness to the safety harness anchor point within the platform.
    6. The attachment is now ready for use. (Please note – the gate automatically locks once raised and unlocks when placed on level ground).
