Color Coded Markers For Hydraulic HosesIt's virtually impossible for even inexperienced operators to make wrong hookups if you "brand" tractor hydraulic hoses with new color-coded markers manufactured by Keeton and Co.
First, you hook up all the hoses from the implement to your tractor in the order you want them. Then, you clamp a color-coded marker, made of aluminum, to each matching male-female pair to hold them together. The clamp is positioned about 18 in. from the outlet. You then affix a color-matching decal to the outlet served by this pair of hoses.
"With this marking system, hydraulic hookups are a breeze," says inventor Lyle Keeton. The pair of hoses held together by a yellow clamp, for example, go to the No. 1 outlet which is marked with a round, No.1 decal also colored yellow. Only one side of each clamp is colored so, to make the right male-female hookup, you only have to see so the colored side of each clamp is up.
The markers¨available in yellow, blue, orange and green¨ sell for $4 each.
