RELIEVING HYDRAULIC SYSTEM PRESSURE
DO NOT disconnect or remove any hydraulic system line or fitting unless engine is shut
down and hydraulic system pressure has been relieved. Tighten all connections before
applying pressure. Escaping hydraulic fluid under pressure can penetrate the skin,
causing injury or death to personnel.
DO NOT leave operator compartment without ensuring parking brake is engaged. Failure
to follow this warning may result in injury or death to personnel.
Hydraulic oil can remain under pressure in hydraulic system even after engine has been
shut down and hydraulic pump has stopped.
It is important to relieve this pressure before disconnecting any hydraulic line or performing
hydraulic system service.
1. Park machine on level ground. Refer to Parking Machine in this work package.
2. Lower work tool to the ground. Refer to Operating Loader in this work package.
Stopping engine immediately after it has been operating under a load can result in over
heating and accelerated wear of engine components. Failure to stop engine properly may
cause premature engine failure.
3. Stop engine. Refer to Stopping Engine in this work package.
4. Actuate auxiliary hydraulic pedal side to side several times before attaching or removing work tools.
