    Does anyone worry about contaminating the hydraulic system in their equipment when using rented attachments?

    I asked this question to my Bobcat service rep one time. It was something he didn't really think about before. He said just to hope eveyone else's fluid was clean, and it was a minimal amount anyway.

    We don't rent attachments for this very reason.

    i only rent from my local cat dealer and most of the stuff they have is realitivly new so i think that i should be safe
    i do worrie though sharing attachments is a lot like sharing needles
    i also change my hydrolic filter every 500hrs
