Looking for fittings!

Hi All,

Anyone know what the hydraulic quick-connects that are used on the HF "porta-power" line are called or where I can buy them? And what the size is that screws into the cylinder?



TIA!

Russ

Hydraulic shop.
Possibly McMaster-Carr for a complete hose.

It'd prolly help to know the size(s), any idea on that? The hydraulic shops we have around here are all geared towards the refinery industry and mega-duty stuff. Pretty unlikely they'd have access to anything like these...

I believe those fittings are called "dry breaks". Hydraulic shop is the place to start.

That's what they are. The tool is commonly called a Port-a-Power. Many use them in the body shop. I used them in industry in the fab shop and welding shop.

farm supply ?

Our local farm supply store has a few different sizes but a shop that makes hyd hoses would probably have a larger variety, I needed to replace a couple of hoses on My backhoe and they could make about anything for a Hyd system.

NOT! Actually, I want to buy (make?) a small pancake cylinder with a hollow core that can "pull" with a bolt inside the hole. I've found a used Enerpac cylinder, but it comes with no attachment fitting. That Enerpac stuff is pricey, $75 for a used one...

HF has a complete setup with GreenLee-like sheetmetal punches for $99. As far as getting a dry-break, I'd prolly just buy a cheap $29 HF cylinder and rob the fitting. Come to think of it, if I could find a way to disassemble it and bore the piston... All the separate fittings I've been able to find are $40+.

Thanks!

Russ
