When you're tired of throwing your hydraulic hoses in the trash, and your money down the drain!


MegaTuff® is your hydraulic best solution – Cover abrasion is the first cause of premature failure of standard hydraulic hose in rugged environments such as mining, injection moulding, rock quarries or construction. Gates MegaTuff®   is the long-lasting solution to the problem of abrasion. Thanks to the cover, made special hybrid compound, the new cover material has been tested to last up to 300 times longer than standard rubber covered hoses. This feature increases service life, lowers maintenance, and eliminates the need for costly hose protectors such as guards, sleeves and bundling.

Built mega-tough: The innovative manufacturing process guarantees superior adhesion of the MegaTuff cover to the hose. The hose will not peel off, remains flexible and guarantees minimum bend radius performance. The combination of the MegaSys® Pressure hoses with the MegaTuff cover offers superior impulse performance and good flexibility on all sizes.     


MegaTuff stands up to extended use: During stringent abrasion tests (ISO 6945).

MegaTuff hose exceeded one million cycles with no failure. That is more than three hundred times longer than standard rubber hose.

Megatuff outperforms any other abrasion resistant hose on the market today. 

 

Megatuff stands up to severe abrasion conditions: 

  • Remains unharmed when in contact with sharp edges, debris or extraneous objects.
  • Ideal for bundled hose applications
  • Resists wear when dragged along metal or rough surfaces.
  • Eliminates the need for spring guards or other hose protection 
    Resists cracking from UV rays.     

MegaTuff stands for superior resistance to:

  • Abrasion (300 x of standard hose)
  • Ozone
  • Weather and UV
  • In-oil application

Hydraulic hoses available with the MegaTuff® cover have pressure ratings up to 6,000 psi. ID sizes are from 1/4- to 1-inch in the wire braid construction, and from 3/8- to 2-inches in spiral wire. Most are designed with a half SAE bend radius.
