    Pictures of my Hossfeld bender modified for hydraulics

    Here's a link to some pictures of some of my shop tools. The Hossfeld was converted to hydraulics. The bender uses the two DA cylinders as SA cylinders, when one is pulling, the opposite one is returning. We had a tornado come through and I needed a dump truck so I robbed the hydrailc pump off the unit to use on the truck I built a dump body for. It was 12vdc electric over Hydraulic with power both ways. I now have a 120VAC APU I'm going to install back on it with a standard hydrailc control valve with a lever action. I'll have about 1/3 of the $$$ I had when I did it with the 12vdc system, most of it is salvaged stuff.

    Photobucket is pretty much "history" in case you've not heard. Since that picture was taken, the bender was burned in a shop fire. I have rebuilt it yet again. I bought a new Hossfeld the last one made before Hossfeld was bought out I believe. I'll see if I can figure out how to post the pictures or you can send me via a PM and I'll send you them. I'm still looking another Hydraulic pump/motor to power it. The 5600 Ford tractor I'm using right now has WAY to many GPM.
