Add-On Makes Hydraulic Connections A Snap
Westendorf, a manufacturer of front-end loaders for over 80 years, says their patented Hydra-Snapô add-on lets you quickly couple multiple hydraulic hose configurations in a single motion.
Itís a metal box with remote outlets that mounts ahead of the cab. Each hose is fastened to a self-aligning keyed plate, so the hoses stay organized. You can add it to an existing loader or upgrade your Westendorf loader package at purchase to include it.
The deviceís one-lever manifold ensures a spill-free connection point, and the patented spiral lock technology makes it hassle-free to put into place. Itís easy to install, simple to use, and best of all, the deviceís space-saving design makes it useful for different locations and applications.
By design, all hoses connected to the Hydra-Snap will merge into a keyed, multi-coupling unit that keeps them aligned and organized with minimal risk of mixing them up. The unit is self-storing and comes with a dust cover to keep the hydraulic connections clean when not in use. An integrated electronic connection is also available.
To disconnect the hydraulics, you rotate a lever on the back of the box 90 degrees. Reconnecting again requires inserting the hose assembly plate and rotating the lever back to its prior position.
Thanks to its universal design, the Hydra-Snap can work with almost all loader models and other implements with hydraulic hoses, including balers, planters, snow blowers, and disc blows.
At publication, the Hydra-Snap comes in four and six-line models. Contact Westendorf directly for current pricing information.
