Now available are the 451TC and 471TC Twin Tough hoses. The hoses, engineered with the Tough Cover (TC) abrasion-resistant cover, are said to provide 80 times more abrasion resistance than standard rubber hose. A smooth finish on the cover prevents dirt buildup. The hoses feature a one-half SAE 100R1/100R2 minimum bend radius for easier handling and coiling.

Available in 25 and 50-ft lengths, the 451TC hose has a 3,000-psi constant working pressure in 3/8 and -in. sizes, and one-wire braided construction. The 471TC version features a 5,000-psi constant working pressure in 3/8-in. size, 4,250-psi constant working pressure in -in. size, and two-wire braided construction.
