------ WARNING! ------

At operating temperature, the hydraulic tank is hot and under pressure.

  1. Maintain the oil level to the "FULL" mark in the sight gauge. Check the oil level when the oil is cold. Verify that the oil level is below the "FULL" mark before you remove the filler cap.

  2. If the hydraulic system requires additional hydraulic oil, remove the filler cap slowly in order to relieve the pressure. Add oil through the filler tube.

  3. Clean the filler cap and install the filler cap.
