Ha! HFT to the rescue!! I use their black split poly wire wrap, SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) #66986): 1/2" ID and 11/16" OD @ $2.99 (less discount) for 7' -- it seems to git 'er done!I now have a few implements with hydraulic hoses, with some obvious abrasion points. I can reduce most of it with creative tiewrap use, but there will still be some areas that will be more prone to rubbing/wear and tear. What do you use to protect your hoses? Nylon tube sleeve, plastic spiral wrap, velcro sleeves?
I would rather get a solution that allows me to protect the hoses still attached (less mess), but will consider all options.
The loader hoses on my Kioti have a nice nylon velcro sleeve, but it is a bit low on coverage and is already fraying. Ideally I would find another source and overlap the oem sleeve (basically warps all 4 hoses) with another nylon velcro sleeve, increasing coverage and doubling up on the "fraying point".
