Safety Warnings

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

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

Hot oil and components can cause personal injury. Do not allow hot oil or components to contact skin.

Remove the filler cap only when the engine is stopped, and the filler cap is cool enough to touch with your bare hand. Remove the filler cap slowly in order to relieve pressure.


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

Personal injury or death can result from escaping fluid under pressure.

Escaping fluid under pressure, even a very small pin-hole size leak, can penetrate body tissue and cause serious injury and possible death. If fluid is injected into your skin, it must be treated immediately by a doctor familiar with this type of injury.

Always use a board or cardboard when checking for a leak.



Care must be taken to ensure that fluids are contained during performance of inspection, maintenance, testing, adjusting and repair of the product. Be prepared to collect the fluid with suitable containers before opening any compartment or disassembling any component containing fluids.

Refer to Special Publication, NENG2500, "Caterpillar Dealer Service Tool Catalog" for tools and supplies suitable to collect and contain fluids on Caterpillar products.

Dispose of all fluids according to local regulations and mandates.


To prevent dirt and contaminants from entering the hydraulic system, always plug or cap the lines, fittings, or hoses as they are disconnected.

This action also lessens the chance of oil spills.

The 223-2105 Hose Cutting Machine is capable of cutting all Caterpillar hydraulic hoses except 1543 Air Conditioning hose and 1028 Thermoplastic hose. In addition, it will cut six-spiral hose up to a 50.8 (2.00 inch) diameter.

The hose cutting machine uses a hand lever to push the hose into the cutting blade. 228-7902 Lubricant is released at the cutting edge and only during the cutting process to reduce friction and extend the serviceable life of the cutting blade.

Caterpillar does not assume responsibility for this product, especially related to operation, maintenance, and safety issues.
