Before servicing brake system components, make sure that the machine is on level ground. Set
the parking brake. Put chocks on each side of all four wheels. Disconnect the battery so that the

The use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is required when using or handling hazardous
materials associated with operating and maintaining equipment (jet fuel, hydraulic luid, brake
luid, ethylene glycol, cleaning solvents, compressed air, and engine/axle oil). Failure to use
PPE when handling these materials could result in injury or death.
Hydraulic luid is combustible. Do not use or store near lames, sparks, or hot surfaces.
Use only in a well-ventilated area. If hydraulic luid is decomposed by heat, toxic gases are
released. Prolonged contact with liquid or mist can cause dermatitis and severe skin irritation.
If there is any prolonged contact with skin, wash contacted area with soap and water. Remove
contaminated clothing and launder before reuse. If liquid contacts eyes, lush eyes with water
immediately. If luid is swallowed, do not try to vomit; luid may enter the lungs and cause
severe injury. Get immediate medical attention. When handling liquid, wear rubber gloves
and impervious clothing to minimize contact. If prolonged contact with mist is likely, wear
NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator.
