(6) Know your vehicles operating limits for ascending, descending, and traversing slopes.
Do not exceed 45% grade (25°) longitudinally. Vehicle becomes unstable
and fluid levels are shifted. Internal components may not be properly
lubricated causing vehicle damage. Tires may slip (loss of traction) or
vehicle may tip, causing possible operator injury or death.
(a) With or without rated capacity load, for maximum longitudinal stability, do
not exceed 45. grades (250).
