    Hydraulic high pressure

    This afternoon was using our old Craftsman 2000 pressure washer. While cleaning our concrete porch and sidewalks the nozzle of the washer hit my ankle and left a pretty good mark. I was talking to my neighbor and he noticed the bruise on my ankle.
    He is a manager for a PA company doing hydro seeding and guide rails.
    Anyway he told of a safety memo the other day.

    Seems a truck driver , not sure what type truck or eqpt mounted on truck, but the driver noticed he had a hyd leak but could not see where it may be.
    So he runs his hand up under the cab or side of truck. He felt something hitting the palm of his hand, pulled his hand back and noticed a small pin hole in his hand. Later that night he went to the ER because his hand was swelling and hurting really bad.

    Doctors had to remove part of his hand because the hyd fluid had gotten into his blood stream.


    I know this has been mentioned before but just a reminder to be aware of any pressure lines.

    ET.-that's too bad about that fella losing part of his hand. when i came back to the coal industry in 2004. my boss got oil under his skin-3 small places- i wanted to take him to the ER right away that day-but he refused to go--it turned a different color-kinda like a bad bruise --but after a week he was ok. first time i ever had seen oil go under ur skin. he claimed it was the new type of oil that was out now.
    in the old days-u never heard of anyone getting that.

    What you don't see

    What you don't see can definitely still hurt you. Hydraulic oil just ain't at all good when inserted into your body.

    Years ago, I toured a coal power plant with a friend who was part of the construction/initial startup crew. He reminded me that if I heard a steam leak, do not move as you can't see superheated steam and it can cut steel, bodies etc. Fascinating tour as we went all over the facility during his regular inspection but the idea of getting parts cut off by something I couldn't see scared the bejesus out of me.

    Posted for general info only. Not suggesting you alter your tractor based upon my feeble minded posts. Do so at your own risk. Maintenance and mods should be performed by a JD Dealer, or refer to your owners and maintenance manuals for proper procedures.

    That is why we had wooden broomsticks in various places in the plants. You used them to detect a leak and make sure the path you intended to walk was clear. Same concept as using cardboard to detect a hydraulic leak.

    Worked with an old navel guy. They used wood broom handles on ships to find the steam leaks as well.

    600 psi steam is VERY dynamic,,,,

    My ship was built in 1944,, I was on it around 1972,,,
    I stayed away from anything that looked like a steam pipe.
    We were preached all the steam pipe failure stories,,,

    I can't even repeat those stories,,,,

    No one mentioned diesel fuel injector lines,,,
    ?? higher pressure than hydraulics ??
    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!

    Absolutely, diesel is just as bad. But often due to less volume there is less risk. Seen the pictures at the coal mine when they have to jagged cut you open to let it bleed out.
