Hydroscand has launched a new range of lightweight, portable hose assembly machines, suitable for service vans and portable applications.
The H16P, H24DC and H32DC have all had a lightweight revamp resulting in machines between 42-50% lighter than before – an important factor for weight-critical service vans doing multiple call-outs at peak times.
At just 10kg the new H16P Lightweight is the lightest portable crimping machine on the market. It’s an impressive 50% lighter than the standard H16P, offering versatile field performance. It is suitable for hose up to 1 inch and its LED light and buzzer ensures error-free crimping. The crimping range is 45mm with a 95-tonne force.
For hose up to 1 ½ inch the new H24DC Lightweight is 47kg. It’s 44% lighter than the standard H24DC and a great on-site choice. It features a crimping range of 61mm and an impressive 140-tonne force.
Lastly, the new H32DC Lightweight is 67kg – 42% lighter than the standard H32DC. It can safely handle hose up to 2 inch with its 87mm crimping range and a heavy-duty 200-tonne crimping force.
The new machines all have a special, high-quality, durable aluminium construction, which contributes to weight reduction, compared to the steel bodies of the standard models.
