I think I read that poppets, the ones with the point, not the ball bearing will do a better job of hooking up when there is pressure on one side of the connection. Since they came out later (entered the marketplace) than the ball I would assume they are improved and that is all I buy.
I am adding a hydraulic valve to a tractor that does not have any valves on it now. The valve will be used to control a snow plow. I will put 4 quick couplings on it to disconnect hoses for summer. Was just wondering why pioneer sells both poppet and ball type coupling sets. Is one better than other?
Poppet style has less restriction than the ball, we mix the poppet with the ball style with no issues. No issues with these small tractors GPM flow anyway. Pick one. Ball is usually cheaper and that is considered a AG style and the poppet Industrial. CJ
Agree with that logic. Case in point, different application: My round baler does not have bale compression springs like my larger diameter previous JD baler. TX. Jim (the resident JD Whiz-kid if you will) and I got into a dialogue about just how my baler works and he informed me that the gate cylinders on my machine act upon the belts in the same manner as the springs on other balers so I did in fact have the ability to put external pressure on the belts to deliver a tight bale.
So to prove it to myself and to have a visual monitor now so I don't have to guess what's happening, I put a pressure gauge in the line on the front of the baler that I could see from the cab and lo and behold I measured 2500# and had good tight bales. My soft bale problem I had initially was due to "operator stupidity"....er ah "uneducated operator" of a new to him machine. Grin.
