Pressurized hydraulic fluid can penetrate body tissue and result in
death, serious infection, or other injuries. Fluid injected under skin
must be IMMEDIATELY removed by a surgeon familiar with this
type of injury. Make sure connections are tight and hoses and
fittings are not damaged before applying system pressure. Leaks
can be invisible. Keep away from suspected leaks. Relieve pressure
