Hydraulic Hose Reinforcement Brackets
3 Jul 1998
Special brackets can be fitted to the hydraulic hoses of a regular bucket harvest system that uses hydraulic gate actuators. These brackets give the hydraulic fluid a corner to flow around, preventing hose movement due to pressure, and potentially increasing plot and test weight reading accuracy. Hydraulic hoses without the brackets can stiffen, or straighten with hydraulic pressure while the gates are being operated, causing bucket motion or putting force against the load cell, possibly affecting bucket weight readings.
The brackets can be purchased for $10 each. Two brackets are typically needed for each plot bucket system (four brackets total for dual plot systems). Please contact our sales department at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
