Hydraulic oil in the system can be under pressures
over 3000 psi with the engine OFF. ALWAYS relieve
pressure in hydraulic lines before attempting to remove
any component in the hydraulic system. With engine
OFF and MLRS attachment on the ground, move
control levers through all operating positions several
times to relieve line pressure. Relieve pressure in
hydraulic oil tank by loosening filler cap very slowly.
Failure to follow these precautions could result in
serious personal injury.
