ToughGuard Hose

Cat® ToughGuard™ Hose

Maximum performance. 
Maximum economy.

With cover abrasion being the leading cause of hose failure in rugged environments, hydraulic hose frequently requires greater abrasion resistance than standard rubber-covered hose can give. Cat® ToughGuardHose offers abrasion resistance far exceeding the capabilities of standard hose.

A polyethylene exterior provides increased resistance to abrasion caused by hoses rubbing together or against other abrasive materials.

Additionally, this cover:

  • Eliminates the need for nylon or plastic add-on protection in most applications
  • Does not sacrifice minimum bend performance
  • Offers protection against chemicals and weathering
  • Is compatible with Cat XTReusable Couplings
  • Uses existing clips and grommets
  • Has tested to two-million abrasion cycles without failure
