Jackhammer hose assemblies, or air compressor hoses, are utilized to connect pneumatic tools to their compressed air source or manifold. We can custom configure and offer a variety of standard assemblies in a variety of colors, diameters, and pressure ratings. We offer a heavy-grade wrapped cover yellow hose, type 1801 and wire-reinforced yellow bull air hose, type 1803. These durable contractors hose assemblies are designed for rigorous outdoor use.
Our jackhammer hose assemblies typically include universal Chicago type couplings. Other popular jackhammer or compressor hose coupling options include Bowes or Thor interchange couplings, which both offer improved safety features. A locking type universal Chicago coupling is available. This is often mounted to the equipment rather than to the hose assembly side of the connection. We can provide custom hose assemblies made to your preferred configuration, and can also complete the installation with hose whip assemblies, oilers, and safety accessories.
Colors and styles include:
- Red 200 PSI Hose in 3/4 and 1 inch diameters
- Red 300 PSI Hose in 3/4 and 1 inch diameters
- Yellow 300 PSI Hose in 3/4 inch diameter (1 inch by special order)
- Green 300 PSI Hose in 3/4 inch diameter
- Blue 300 PSI Hose in 3/4 inch diameter
Our compressed air hose assemblies are made from domestic EPDM rubber which is an elastomer that is known for good all weather flexibility, ozone resistance, and durability. EPDM hose can handle a light oil mist such air supplied by a compressor with an inline oiler installed. For oily environments, a nitrile rubber hose may be more suitable, such as our type 1503, 1801 or 1803 hose series. Type 1502Y, 1801 and 1803 are all yellow cover hoses, so be careful in selecting the correct hose and when replacing an existing hose.
It is important to note that the hose used in assemblies is rated at 200 or 300 PSI. The Assembly is rated at its lowest rated component which is typically the hose coupling and clamp.
All universal couplings (crows foot, Chicago, 2-lug couplings) are factory rated at 150 PSI
Please notify all operators and tag all equipment if an assembled hose does not meet the pressure rating labeled on the hose.
Always use hose safety whip check cables to protect operators and people working nearby from potential hose failures. Whip check safety cables can significantly reduce the hazard of an unrestrained pressurized hose, and can fulfill requirements by job safety oversight organizations.
