Multiflex Speedtiller Operator Safety Manual

 Hydraulic fluid escaping under pressure can have sufficient force to cause injury. Keep all hoses and connections in good serviceable condition. Failure to heed may result in serious personal injury or death. Escaping hydraulic fluid under pressure can penetrate the skin causing serious injury. Avoid the hazard by relieving the pressure before disconnecting lines or performing work on the system. Make sure hydraulic fluid connections are tight and all hydraulic hoses and lines are in good condition before applying pressure to the system. Use a piece of paper or cardboard, NOT BODY PARTS, to check for suspected leaks. Wear protective gloves and safety glasses or goggles when working with hydraulic systems. DO NOT DELAY! If an accident occurs, see a doctor familiar with this type of injury immediately. Any fluid injected into the skin or eyes must be treated within a few hours or gangrene may result.
