When reliable performance in demanding applications is critical, GH493 hose is the perfect solution. The GH493 hose exceeds four leading industry standards, including EN856 Type R12, EN856 Type 4SP, SAE 100R12 and ISO 18752. Tested up to one million impulse cycles, GH493 hose offers long in-application life, as well as above-standard pressure tolerance and flexibility. A versatile solution for a wide range of mobile machines, the GH493 hose can help maximize uptime and minimize maintenance.


Tested up to 1 million impulse cycles— twice the requirements of SAE 100R12, EN856 Type 4SP and EN856 Type R12

Better average pressure performance - exceeds SAE 100R12 (37% better), EN856 Type 4SP (22% better) and EN856 Type R12 (38% better)

Better minimum bend radius - 18% tighter than EN856 Type 4SP and 43% tighter than EN856 Type R12

Meets ISO 18752 constant pressure standards

8X higher abrasion resistance with Danfoss Dura-Tuff® cover

Pair with Danfoss 4S spiral fittings utlizing Dura-SealTM technology for Class 0 leakage (SAEJ1176)


Long lifecycle in demanding applications maximizes machine uptime and lowers maintenance spending

Above-standard pressure rating enables use in a broader range of hydraulic systems and allows for the creation of more power dense machines

High pressure rating helps maintain the desired pressure levels and ensures efficient system operation, while enabling safer operations and longer application life

Greater flexibility enables use in really tight spaces, allowing more design freedom, lower assembly costs, and reduced machine weight that increases fuel-efficiency

Higher abrasion resistance lessens a leading cause of hose failure, increasing in application life and reducing maintenance
