||This data sheet describes hazards associated with the use of metal-reinforced hydraulic hoses on aerial bucket trucks near energized power lines. Such hoses may rupture and cause fires if they contact power lines; electric current flowing through the metal reinforcement may also create an electrocution hazard. The use of nonconducting hydraulic hoses near energized power lines is recommended.
