for protection. If fluid enters skin or eye, get immediate medical attention.
Do not attempt to loosen or tighten hydraulic fittings or lines when the system is pressurized. Ensure
that the boom is in the stowed position before doing any maintenance on the hydraulic system.
Do not move under any hydraulically controlled implement when making adjustments or repairs to
