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.
