Gates M-XP hydraulic hose combines the flexibility of wire-braid construction with the strength and performance of spiral-wire reinforcement. The two-braid wire hose can handle 4,000 psi high-impulse applications in all sizes. Testing at 1,000,000 impulse cycles exceeds the SAE standard of 200,000 impulse cycles. The M-XP hoses are ideal for out-of-sight and hard-to-reach applications and reduce hose length requirements up to 60%. The hoses allow for greater flexibility and easier installation in confined spaces and are engineered with up to 1/3 the SAE bend radius requirement. The M-XP hoses can be fitted with Gates' economical, one-piece, wire-braid MegaCrimp couplings.
