BOOM HOSE REEL
A hydraulic hose reel, with two hydraulic hoses, is
allowing the hoses to extend as the attachment is
installed on the right side of the boom base section
lowered, and reels in the hoses as the attachment is
to direct hydraulic oil for operation of the crane's
hydraulically operated attachments.
A tagline assembly installed on the hoses should be
The reel incorporates four quick disconnects. Two
connected to the attachment so that there is slack in
connect the hose reel to the crane hydraulic system
the hoses between the tagline clamp and attachment
and the other two (at the ends of the hoses on the
connection points. This will relieve the stress of the
reel) connect to the attachment. The reel is installed
hoses pulling on the connection points.
BOOM HOSE REEL
Hose reel is installed with a spring preload. Hold on to hoses when
disconnecting so reel does not spin freely causing possible damage to
equipment or personal injury.
If hose reel hoses (7, Figure 2-10-6) and taglines are connected to an attachment, disconnect hoses and
taglines from attachment and allow hose reel assembly (6) to slowly rotate counterclockwise until spring preload
is released. Cap ends of hoses and attachment ports.
Position boom over an elevated platform and lower boom until hose reel assembly (6) rests on platform.
Disconnect hydraulic hoses (1) at connectors (2) (one on each side of boom). Cap ends of hydraulic
hoses and connectors on boom.
Remove nuts (3), lockwashers (4), capscrews (5), and hose reel assembly (6) from boom mounting
There may be shim washer(s) between hose reel and boom mounting
bracket for alignment. Mark position and number of shim(s).
If necessary, remove hoses (1 and 7) from hose reel assembly (6). Cap ends of hydraulic hoses and
connectors on hose reel assembly.
If necessary, remove tagline assembly from hydraulic hoses (7), refer to TAGLINE ASSEMBLY Removal
