A. When travelling if one or more wheels loose traction.
B. When stacking / de-stacking at height.
C. When loading / un-loading.
17. Why is it important to release the hydraulic pressure when a Moffett is being transported on a smooth ride mounting kit?
A. To ensure that there will not be a build up of hydraulic pressure during transportation.
B. To enable the lorry to be removed from the truck or trailer.
