Title: SUPPORT ASSEMBLY FOR SWIVELLABLY SUPPORTING HYDRAULIC LINES
Abstract:
A support assembly for hydraulic lines is disclosed. The support assembly includes a frame designed to retain at least one ring within its opening. Each ring is configured to be secured about a single hydraulic hose, thus simultaneously securing it within the frame. Each ring can rotate with respect to the frame about their longitudinal axis, reducing the stress exerted directly on the hydraulic line. The support assembly further includes a second frame in which the frame is attached. The frame can rotate about an axis that is perpendicular to the rotation of the rings to further lessen the stress on the hydraulic lines. The support assembly is attached to a hydraulically operated machine by a base plate or bracket onto which the second frame is fixedly attached.
