1. Position the forks at the correct distance apart to locate into the fork pockets and drive fully into the pockets.

2. Tighten thumbscrew retention on both forks.

3. Remove sprung loaded pins at the top of the trunnion arms in preparation for picking up wheelie bin and undo ratchet strap across the front of the attachment. Ensure the strap does not get caught under the forklift truck.

4. Lift the attachment clear of the floor and with the body of the attachment horizontal to the ground, approach the rear of the bin, positioning the trunnion arms under the trunnions of the bin.

5. Lift the attachment to engage the trunnions and replace the sprung loaded pins to hold the trunnions in place.

6. The ratchet strap is then fastened at the front of the bin to hold it securely into the frame of the attachment.

7. The whole unit can now be moved to the discharge area and the handbrake applied, ready for lifting.

8. Before lifting, remove the loop chain from the storage box.

9. Once lifted into the correct emptying position and height, operate the gearbox by means of the continuous loop chain and rotate the bin forwards to empty the contents.

10. The gear box can be left at any angle during the unloading process and will hold in place at any angle when left unattended.

11. Once discharged, rotate the bin back to horizontal, lower to the floor and replace the loop chain into the storage box for travelling.

12. The ratchet strap is then released, trunnion pins removed and the attachment reversed away from the bin.

13. You are now ready for your next lift.
