One of the popular applications for “Pig’sTail” protective wrap is to protect hoses in extreme wear conditions. One of the most extreme situations is nut harvesting. They use machines called shakers and the machine has an arm that grips the tree and shakes it so all the nuts fall off. These arms are hydraulically driven and require a large number of hoses to power them. These hoses move back and forth thousands of times through a harvest season and usually wear out prematurely. Our product is used to extend the hose life so the machines can make it through a harvest season without being replaced. They ofetn make it through a second season as well.
Below is a picture showing our wrap on a shaker after it came in from the field.
