We have a V30 grapple the forward hose fitting causes the hose fitting to constantly crack. Needs to allow for more hose movement. Hoses also get into pinch point too easily. Need a way to hold hoses out of the way and allow movement of hoses when latter is raised high and in full dump position and return to none pinch point when fully lowered and grapple rolled back. We have gone through 3 hoses do to wear and breaking of front fitting. Rest of the Virnig items we have seem to work well.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience these issues may have caused you, and we’d like to help find a proper solution. We’ve found most hose problems come from either improperly matched hoses to the machine or inadequate hose length. To allow more hose movement the hoses probably need to be longer but we can’t identify the exact problem until we have more information.
Pinching hoses is very frustrating. Many operators have used bungee cords and zip ties to keep hoses up and away from pinch points but still allow some movement. A simple hose re-route could solve/prevent the issue.
Feel free to call to discuss in more detail.
