The hydraulic hoses on the 120M road grader’s front wheel drive are constantly rubbed and chaffed during operations because they’re so close together. All that rubbing can wear holes in the hoses, possibly causing leaks.
Spiral wrap on road grader’s front hydraulic drive.
To guard against the chaffing, your mechanic can use black spiral wrap, NSN 9330-00-889-7776.
Not all hoses or their full length may require wrapping. Only those hoses or portions of them where points of friction occur will need the spiral wrap.
