    Default Hydraulic hose holder for portable unit

    Anyone have any pics of their own ideas on how to secure two sets of hydraulic hoses to a portable power unit? We are currently using straps, but it seems the hose becomes loose sometimes.

    I noticed the guys in Kentland have some sort of cage mounted to the side of their portable power unit, but could only find one pic of it. Looks like it holds the hose nice and tight, which is what we are looking to do.

    Anyone else use something similar? Please share pics if you have them!!

    I bet it was a "fast basket" and apparently the company is out of business.

    Updated the original to include link. It was on "toolmonger.com".

    Then again, if you want to be more link Kentland you could go with something like this:

    Thanks for the advice, but I could care less about being like "insert name here" F.D. They have an idea that works, simple as that.

    Quit hatin' on the 33 boys....were you riding along and then asked to leave pal? Why all the hate?

    No hate at all. It was just meant as a joke. Given all the bravado, a heart-shaped hose holder would look pretty funny. Forgive the slight threadjack.

    As for the original question. The theme of my original posts is that there are a lot of options for storing hydraulic hose. The commercial clamps/brackets made for extension cords or garden hose could be adapted for this purpose and work really well attached to a portable power unit. Even the heart-shaped one above.
