Abrasion and length change contribute to hose failure

The 563TJ TOUGHJACKET hydraulic hose, with 650x the abrasion resistance of rubber hose, offers the best change in length characteristics at +/-1% making it an ideal solution for boom or cable track applications.

Hydraulic Hoses for Lifts, Loaders and Cranes

Reduce maintenance down time with TOUGHJACKET HosesMachine builders trust abrasion-resistant TOUGHJACKET™ thermoplastic hydraulic hoses to deliver ultra-low length change under pressure for over-the-sheave and boom applications like lifts, loaders, and cranes. The 563TJ hydraulic hose series offers the best change in length characteristics at +/-1%. This makes it an ideal solution for boom or cable track applications where long lengths are required, because abrasion and length change are the biggest contributors to hose failure.

Most hydraulic hoses shrink at least 2% in a constrained environment, which can be disastrous for the hose and cable tracks. SAE accepts a change in length of between +2% to -4%. This means a boom run with 100 feet of hose must accommodate an extra 4 feet of hose to account for shrinkage under pressure and prevent damage to the hose, fitting, or cable track.

Whether your hose application requires a single-line, twin-line, or multi-line configuration, the amazing TOUGHJACKET cover reduces maintenance downtime and delivers hours of uninterrupted performance.
