WARNING 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 condi- tion 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.
HYDRAULIC HOSE HOOK UP • For ease of hook up, hose grip handles are color coded. • The same color is used for each hydraulic circuit. • To distinguish between EXTEND and RETRACT, hose grips are marked accordingly. • Clean hydraulic hose breakaway ends before connecting to tractor.
• Hose grip circuits are color coded and marked accordingly for In & Out. • After disconnecting tractor, ensure hydraulic hoses are safely stored in the hose holder.
ENSURE HYDRAULIC SYSTEM IS FULLY PRIMED BEFORE USE
PRIMING HYDRAULIC SYSTEM • Fully extend and retract hydraulic cylinders. • Repeat 3-4 times and hold lever extended each way for 10 to 15 seconds to release air from the system. If problem exists hold hydraulic lever under pressure, until air is fully released from system.
