HOW TO USE THE RYCO PRODUCT TECHNICAL MANUAL
This Product Technical Manual is divided into four colour coded sections; Introduction, Hose, Couplings and Technical. A colour coded indicator tab on the edge of every right hand page aids finding and identifying each section.
On pages 4 and 5 is an Alphanumeric Index if you know the Part Number you’re looking for, and pages 6 to 7 provide a Contents by Section that lists the product ranges each section contains.
In addition, each section contains a Contents and/or Pictorial Index as relevant to further aid you in finding the exact information you require. In addition to a Contents and Pictorial Index, the Couplings section also contains an Index by Endstyle Number.
IMPORTANT – DO NOT MIX AND MATCH PRODUCT
Hydraulic Hose from one manufacturer is usually not compatible with fittings supplied by another manufacturer.
It is the responsibility of the hose assembly fabricator to consult the manufacturer’s written assembly instructions or the manufacturers directly before intermixing hose and fittings from two manufacturers. Similarly, assembly equipment from one manufacturer is usually not interchangeable with that of another manufacturer. It is the responsibility of the hose assembly fabricator to consult the manufacturer’s written instructions or the manufacturers directly for the proper assembly equipment. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for proper preparation and fabrication of hose assemblies.
