Operators, during your PMCS walkaround on the 22-ton crane, make sure you check for oil leaks around the vehicle’s outrigger assemblies.

Exposure to the elements and plain old wear and tear cause leaks. Sometimes a hose even comes loose.

A sure sign of a loose or leaky hose is oil pooling on the ground or on the outrigger’s pad.

If you see a leak, report it.
