Skin contact: Avoid skin contact. This product may cause an allergic skin reaction upon direct contact. Symptoms may include pain, itching, discoloration, swelling, and blistering. If this material is heated, thermal burns may result from skin contact. Prolonged or repeated contact may result in contact dermatitis which is characterized by dryness, chapping, and reddening. This condition may make the skin more susceptible to other irritants, sensitizers, and disease. Prolonged or repeated Page 2 of 7 CUB CADET HYDRAULIC TRANSMISSION FLUID Revision Date: 09/15/06 Replaces: 04/21/06 contact may result in oil acne which is characterized by blackheads with possible secondary infection. Injection of pressurized hydrocarbons under the skin can cause inflammation and swelling, as well as severe, permanent tissue damage. The initial wound at the injection site may not appear to be serious at first, but, if left untreated, could result in disfiguration or amputation of the affected part. Inhalation: This product has a low vapor pressure and is not expected to present an inhalation hazard at ambient conditions. Caution should be taken to prevent the formation of an aerosol or misting of this product. May cause respiratory irritation or other pulmonary effects following prolonged or repeated inhalation of oil mist at airborne levels above the recommended mineral oil mist exposure limit. Symptoms of respiratory irritation may include coughing and difficulty breathing. Ingestion: Do not ingest. Because of its low viscosity, this material can directly enter the lungs, if swallowed, or if subsequently vomited. Once in the lungs, it is very difficult to remove and can cause severe injury or death. DELAYED OR OTHER HEALTH EFFECTS Cancer: None of the components in this material are listed as carcinogens by IARC, NTP, ACGIH or OSHA. Other: On rare occasions, prolonged and repeated exposure to oil mist poses a risk of pulmonary disease such as chronic lung inflammation. This condition is usually asymptomatic as a result of repeated small aspirations. Shortness of breath and cough are the most common symptoms. In accordance with Canadian WHMIS Regulations: Reproduction and Birth Defects: Contains material that may cause adverse reproductive effects if swallowed based on animal data. See Section 11 for additional information. Risk depends on duration and level of exposure. SECTION 4 FIRST AID MEASURES Eye contact: Immediately flush eyes with large amounts of water and continue flushing until irritation subsides. If material is hot, treat for thermal burns and take victim to hospital immediately. Skin contact: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated area thoroughly with soap and water. If redness or irritation occurs, seek medical attention. If material is hot, submerge injured area in cold water. If victim is severely burned, remove to a hospital immediately. If material is injected under the skin, seek medical attention immediately. Note to physicians: In an accident involving high-pressure equipment, this type of product may be injected under the skin. Immediate treatment at a surgical emergency center is recommended, no matter how small and insignificant the wound may appear. Inhalation: This material has a low vapor pressure and is not expected to present an inhalation exposure at ambient conditions. Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Seek medical attention.

NFPA RATINGS: Health: 1 Flammability: 1 Reactivity: 0 (0-Least, 1-Slight, 2-Moderate, 3-High, 4-Extreme, PPE:-Personal Protective Equipment Index recommendation) FLAMMABLE PROPERTIES: Flash point: 390 °F (ASTM D-92 Cleveland Open Cup) Autoignition temperature: > 550 °F Flammable (Explosive) limits (% by volume in air) Lower: No Data Upper: No Data Extinguishing Media: Use dry chemical, foam, or carbon dioxide. Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Water may be ineffective but can be used to cool containers exposed to heat or flame. Caution should be exercised when using water or foam as frothing may occur, especially if sprayed into containers of hot, burning liquid. Unusual Fire and Explosive Conditions: Dense smoke may be generated while burning. Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and other oxides may be generated as products of combustion. SECTION 6 ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES Protective Measures: Eliminate all sources of ignition in vicinity of spilled material. Consult hazards Identification information in Section 3, Personal Protection information in section 8, Fire Fighting Measures in Section 5, and Reactivity data in Section 9. Spill Management: Contain spill immediately. Do not allow spill to enter sewers or watercourses. Remove all sources of ignition. Absorb with appropriate inert material such as sand, clay, etc. Large spills may be picked up using vacuum pumps, shovels, buckets, or other means and placed in drums or other suitable containers. Reporting: Report spills to local authorities and/or the U.S. Coast Guard’s National Response Center at (800) 424-8802 as appropriate or required. SECTION 7 HANDLING AND STORAGE Do not transfer to unmarked containers. Store in closed containers away from heat, sparks, open flame or oxidizing materials. Fire extinguishers should be kept readily available. See NFPA 30 and OSHA 1910.106--flammable and combustible liquids.

(0-Least, 1-Slight, 2-Moderate, 3-High, 4-Extreme, PPE:-Personal Protective Equipment Index recommendation) PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT Eye protection: Eye protection is recommended under conditions of normal use. If material is handled such that it could be splashed into eyes, wear plastic face shield or splash-proof safety goggles. Skin protection: Skin protection is recommended for single, short duration exposures. Prolonged or repeated exposures, use impervious clothing (boots, gloves, aprons, etc.) Over parts of the body subject to exposure. If handling hot material, use insulated protective clothing (boots, gloves, aprons, etc.). Launder soiled clothes. Properly dispose of contaminated leather articles including shoes, which cannot be decontaminated. Respiratory Protection: Respiratory protection is not required under conditions of normal use. If vapor or mist is generated when the material is heated or handled, use an organic vapor respirator with a dust and mist filter. All respirators must be NIOSH certified. Do not use compressed oxygen in hydrocarbon atmospheres. Ventilation: If vapor or mist is generated when the material is heated or handled, adequate ventilation in accordance with good engineering practice must be provided to maintain concentrations below the specified exposure or flammable limits. Other: Consumption of food and beverage should be avoided in work areas where hydrocarbons are present. Always wash hands and face with soap and water before eating, drinking, or smoking.
