Default Hydraulic line replacement

I have to change out a hydraulic hose on the front bucket of my B21. Do I need to drain the "pressure" out or do I just unbolt the connection and remove?
Thanks

Just move your joystick to all positions and any remaining pressure should be relieved.

Then it is just a matter of disconnecting the old and putting on the new.

Just always keep in mind that your hydraulic system is like a loaded gun. There are mechanics killed every year from having high pressure oil being injected in their skin. A hydraulic system is about like working with a bull. It can be done safely but you never want to take it for granted.
