Whenever I use the loader, I have to deal with the hydraulic hose covers dangling down to catch dirt or coming apart to be able to catch more dirt. I have tried to hold them all together with a small bungee that sometimes work. I came up with this idea using some scrap cloth and some velcro. It wraps around all the hose covers keeping everything under control and much cleaner. Total cost was $1.37!!!!!

Nice fix!!!:thumbup1gif: I've been a proponent of keeping a wide assortment 'zip-ties' in my shop. Typically used to bundling wires, I use them for everything. The larger one even serve to hold cargo racks on the ATV. ~Scotty

He already screwed up and told us what his costs are:laugh: I would buy one though:good2:
Since it was just a prototype, you'll notice that she made it of material that wasn't even squared and made from scraps.

I was looking at the pretty spaghetti salad by my footboard today thinking, "Now, just what was JD thinking here?" I was really glad I wasn't heading into some patch of 2 year growth... I like that wrap idea. Now, being cheap-frugal (pick one) I'd have to make my own... unless the shipping is paid by the maker and the first 100 shipped were heavily discounted as "Product Field Testing"...!:laugh:

Have you seen this?

This is the wrap we use when keeping pneumatic lines in order on our robotic end effectors (especially on the 6-axis type). Check out the attached picture. This can be purchased in 1-foot increments from McMater Carr for around $2-$3/ft. It is the "ballistic nylon" variety (bottom left on the PDF). This is wrapping 8 separate 5/16" vacuum lines on this end effector.

Interesting commercial solution... Which begs the question, "Could we somehow use nylon stocking or pantyhose for this application?" Maybe a nice mesh or dark textured with a silver weave...?

I just got on here and have been searching for about 1/2 hour to see if anyone else had this problem. That's a very nice solution. Thanks for sharing that. If you're selling them, I'm buying! :)

The way that I use my tractor I think that cover would get packed full of dirt, but it looks like it could work well in some circumstances. This was my solution to that same problem...
