Personally, I'm planning on doing a lot of hillside farming, so I'm working on terraces, swales, hugelbeds, etc. I don't really have any need for PTO applications. About the only thing I would possibly need a PTO for is a big mower or bushhog. For that, I might someday buy a junky old tractor with PTO and the bushhog attachment, but I'll spend the least amount of money on that as possible because it's not a high priority for me. I generally try to avoid having lots of different machines. That's why I stick with a backhoe. It's the one machine with which I can do almost everything I need. For the few things I can't do with it (e.g. mowing), I may just need to bite the bullet and get a second machine for those few applications that a backhoe won't handle well, unless I can get some goats to do my mowing for me.

Not a fun thing to happen as it is dangerous to contact skin or eyes.
This toxicological profile discusses only three classes of hydraulic fluids: mineral oil hydraulic fluids, polyalphaolefin hydraulic fluids, and organophosphate ester hydraulic fluids. The classes are based on the major chemicals found in the hydraulic fluids. However, hydraulic fluids are often complex mixtures of many chemical components. A particular hydraulic fluid can differ in its chemical components from another hydraulic fluid even if the two fluids are in the same class. Thus, effects of exposure may differ.
