Figure 6. Connecting WWET/T to Prime Mover
Ensure that two persons (not including the prime mover operator) are
available for this operation to properly guide the prime mover into position and
connect the trailer. Trailer parking brakes must be ON and chocks in place to
avoid injuries from a moving trailer to avoid serious injury/death between the
prime mover and the trailer when guiding the prime mover into position.
If lockout device isn't removed prior to forward motion, death, serious injury or
property damage will result.
8. If trailer is to be backed up, remove brake lockout (figure 7, item 1) from its mounting bracket and
install on the brake (figure 7, item 2). Remove lockout to resume forward motion.
