    • Residual hydraulic fluid will be trapped in the hoses connected to the cylinder, and will drip out during the following procedure.

    • Place a bucket underneath the device, below the cylinder to catch any hydraulic fluid drips.

    • Have rags handy to stop drips and clean up affected areas.
