Hello,
trying to pick people's memory. I saw somewhere (I think on here) a hand tool for pulling quick couplers together. There was a link to the website complete with a video. I cannot remember what it was called other than I think it was European. Does anyone else remember seeing it and remember the name of the company who made it? Thanks

Whats up with cracking a hose off to relieve the pressure.

Or if you dont fancy that why dont you swap them for the twist on type couplers.

It's for a work colleague for a specific application. Like an idiot I did not save the link at the time and now I cannot recall the name but can remember watching the video. All I think I can remember is that it was possibly German and the machine in the video was possibly green. I have googled everything I can think of around coupler tool and it's not coming up. It looked to be a good job if a little pricey.

Myself and Graham's got one, great bit of kit, think we sorted some sort of discount for forum users, but it's going back a long time now. The name of the dealer is Paul and his no. is 07885 232924.

Couldn't tell you, we'll soon find out though if he gives him a ring though:), need to get mine sent down to Druid central so he can have a good look at it.

Handy bit of kit of you don't want to spill any hydraulic oil by cracking off the coupling.

Do they work OK with flat face couplings?

Does 180 + vat sound about right for them? Got quoted that today from ,

Jeeeeeeez ... better start making these :eek:

Look simple enough items in the pix I've seen of 'em :D

Bit like a valve spring compressor really .... now there's a thought :D

I'm sure I paid about 80, but too long ago to find the paperwork. Ollie may remember. 180 plus VAT seems steep.

I've been in need of something like that for years I don't like 'cracking a fitting' and getting oil everywhere and risking contamination I'll see if I can order myself one of these when I have some money to spare.

Did you ever get yourself one of those devices ??? - I dont see an engcon ecoil and all that reorganising happening anytime soon and i get a bit fed up of the routine of getting rid of the pressure on flat face couplings - I was interested in some myself if they are any good.

Cheers

I bit the bullet & bought one, haven't used it yet but looks good strong quality, comes with different size adapters so csn be used on all sizes of fittings

You got any other pix of those Pete? .... been looking for some decent pix of 'em for ages .... could spend a few hours on some of them at 170 euros/quid (near as parity these days) :D and I've a few that're lil' bar stewards .... occasionally ..... PITA de-pressurising the system :mad:

aye Ped, the 'real deal' ..... I did find a few more on the net last night but now't showing the toggle lock plate and its attachment point ... can sort of see how it's been done though, in one pic. :)
Silly money for off the shelf units, really, for what they are ..... low volume items or not .... 'tis still silly money ..... halve it and sell four or five times the volume eh? :rolleyes: must be lots of folk wishing, wanting and thinking - no ****ing way am I spending that for the odd usage ..... but if they were cheaper ;) ..... I just look and think Hmmmm ... new project :D

First thought after using them was why the fuck didn't i get these years ago, so simple and no messing about now! Hopefully no more cracking fittings anymore 😁😁

very true Mog .... but you'd want a grip like Popeye to use one o' they to crack a fitting under pressure, let alone connect one. :eek:

Just had a quick net scan, see if there's such a thing as a heavy duty version, but couldn't see anything :(

I wonder if one could be sent to China and have them made with a different name for a fraction of the price. Just need someone with manufacturing contacts in China.
The converted car jack back in the thread looks a good solution.

Would something like a Stanley trigger clamp be strong enough?

AtlasRob
27-11-2016, 11:15 AM
Do away with the problem altogether and use screw on like Atlas & Hydrema :D quite why Druid removed his I'm still not 100 sure :o

I am really ;) flat face are easier to source when you first start looking and it can be an easy enough decision.

Whether that is true later on and experience shows it would be better to stay with screw on I cannot confirm or deny.

I cant see it been any where near strong enough and as druid said you would need arms like popeye to press it in!

Car jack idea would be best option or a spring claml maybe?

The quick on clamp works on a cantilever idea to get the pressure needed

If your changing fittings a fair bit the tool is worth it's cost,seconds each fitting job done, end of story...

I tried screw on, but once you get a bit of sand on them you can't get them clean. At least with flat face you can wipe them clean each time.
I'm sure when I bought my easy on it was about 80, so someone is making a huge markup now.

well I can confirm that ............... I won't be refitting the screw type Rob ... PITA cleaning up after 'em and keeping them clean.
The FFs can be an occasional PITA but no mess and easy to keep clean.
Plus they're a damned sight quicker and no bruised knuckles.
Still got the BIG screw ons, on her, on the change-over from the crowd, but they get used so infrequently, I'll live with them ...... for now, anyway.:rolleyes:;)
