    Dura-Wrap Sleeving

    It is always a challenge to route my 54" front blower hoses so they stay out of the right front tire. This season I decided to try some of Kenny's Dura-Wrap sleeving. I used some 1 1/4 sleeving to wrap the two chute control hoses together and then used some 2" sleeving to wrap all four hoses together. This makes a nice tight bundle all the way back to the quick connects and keeps things where they need to be with minimum need for tie-wraps.

    Very nice! Not only gives it a nice clean organized installation you can also rest assured if you ever get a hose leak.

    Not too many people realize how dangerous a high pressure hydraulic leak can be.

    I agree. A leak will certainly make a bit of a mess inside the sleeving but it beats spraying around.

    I forgot to post my other photo. I also put some of the sleeving on the hoses running to my rear blade.

    Spraying around is the least of the worry. Hydraulic oil under pressure will pierce your skin instantly. Looking at the last photo posted even more important being the hoses are right behind you.

    Not to get into the whole story now, but I was operating a Case tractor which had hydraulic lines in the cab, and sprung a leak running at full throttle.......

    No doubt! Funny thing is normally I fiddle with the hoses for 30-mins routing, putting on zip-ties, etc. With the Dura-Wrap it took less than 10 minutes.

    I too, route and reroute hoses until I am happy with the result. There is one the 2030's loader that crosses others that I do not like, but it will have to wait for a warmer day to get moved. The loader is currently off the 2030 and with it off, it's hard to tell which hose I wanted to move.

    jgayman,

    Looks very nice. I have the blade instead of the blower, but I had lots of issues last year with the hoses hitting the front tire. I bought a short piece of dura-wrap with the same thinking as you. I haven't used it yet since we haven't had enough snow to use the blade, but now that I see yours, I'm afraid I didn't get a long enough piece. I only got 2 feet I think.

    Anyway, thanks for the photos!
