Do not place very heavy concentrated load against cab.
Such position may cause frame to bend-perhaps permanently-
or cause blow out from overload on front tires. Truck steers
hard, and load may be top-heavy.
Position heavy concentrated load near rear and on its long
side if possible. Most weight should be over and just ahead of
rear axle to prevent bending frame ond to load tires properly.
Do not place very heavy load toward side of truck.
position overloads spring and tire on loaded side and may
cause brakes to lock on light side resulting in flat spots on
tires and tendency to skid.
To distribute equal weight on all rear tires, place load
evenly between sides. Eliminates twisting of frame and
overloading spring, tire, and axle bearing.
Never permit concentrated load behind rear axle. Such posi-
tion bends frame, overloads rear tires, and makes steering
ineffective by lifting weight from front wheels.
See part B, above.
Do not use improper vehicle for the load. In addition to
dangers described in part F, above, on rough roads truck can
pivot on rear axle and Iift front wheels off road.
Use of proper type and size vehicle for service required
prevents damage to vehicle and possible serious accidents.
