haha..you laugh...we had one guy, not the smartest thing put diesel fuel into the hydraulic oil filler tube...topped off the hydraulic system with diesel fuel, what a mess.

what type of skiloader you working with?...i know alot of our older CAT iron doesnt have a fuel gauge, you have to take the lid off and look down in there.

Let me guess... Bobcat, possibly a 753? Rest assured, he wasn't the first and probably wasn't and won't be the last!

A former boss of mine did that with the 753... In his defense though, it wasn't quite light enough that morning and he was in a hurry trying to get a jump on the day. Ended up costing around 2 hours for 3 of us to siphon out the hydraulic/diesel mixture and replace the fluid!

We recently had a guy put gasoline in the brand new SR-80. Of course it was on the day we had $1000/day worth of rental equipment sitting idle while we siphoned it out.

I was just starting to get over it when I said, "I thought you said you only put 1 gallon of gas in it?".... his response was "Yeah, then I filled it up with diesel":hammerhead:

I haven't screamed that loud in a long time.
