Automatic Coupling Inserter

Adjust the hose through the jaw halves such that a

sufficient length overhangs to accept the coupling. Turn
the threaded spindle to tighten the jaws around the hose.

Close the pump valve and pump the ram forward until the

coupling is fully inserted. Note: Make sure the fitting is
aligned with hose during insertion. Open the pump valve
for automatic ram return. Remove assembly.

Lubricate the inside of the hose end and/or the shank of
the coupling with Dixon's lubricant (DCL-80). Insert the
end of the coupling shank into the hose and position the

hydraulic ram assembly behind the fitting. Secure the
hydraulic ram assembly in place with the position pins.







Caution: Never place body parts directly in path of hydraulic ram while in operation, as injury may result.
