- Insert the forks fully into the fork tubes. Secure the unit to the fork truck by looping the chain around the fork carriage and fastening it back to itself with a quick-link.
- To lay a drum onto its side: With the carrier resting on the ground, pull the carrier release cable to allow the drum carrier rods to drop to the vertical position. Center the carrier over the upright drum and carefully lower it until the carrier rests on top of the drum. Slowly move backwards while lowering the forks until the side of the drum rests on the floor. Lower the carrier a bit more to allow the latch to lock the rods into the horizontal position. The drum can then be picked up, transported, and placed horizontally into a rack or be stacked.
- To stand a drum upright: With the carriage locked into the horizontal position, slowly approach the top lid of the horizontal drum until the back of the carrier contacts the drum. Tilt fork truck carriage back and lift. Rest the carrier on the floor and pull the carrier release cable. Slowly move forward while raising the forks until the drum is upright.
