MegaSys® System


Gates meets the needs of high-powered, high-pressure hydraulic equipment with its MegaSys® line. As part of an integrated solution, the spiral-wire and wire-braid hose and coupling products offer peak performance and flexibility.

MegaSys® Spiral-Wire Constant Pressure Hoses
EFG3K, EFG4K, EFG5K, EFG6K and G8K Hoses

  • Four layers (six in some larger sizes) of spiraled, high-tensile steel
  • Nitrile tube for use with biodegradable hydraulic fluids
  • Tested to industry-leading 1,000,000 impulse cycles
  • Temperature range -40°F to +250°F (-40°C to +121°C)
  • Available with abrasion-resistant MegaTuff® cover

MegaSys® Wire-Braid Constant Pressure Hoses
M3K, M4K, M5K and M6K Hoses

  • Two braids of high-tensile steel wire (one braid in M3K -3, -4, -5, -6 and -8 sizes)
  • Nitrile tube for use with biodegradable hydraulic fluids
  • Tested to industry-leading 600,000 cycles
  • Temperature range -40°F to +212°F (-40°C to +100°C)
  • Available with abrasion-resistant XtraTuffor MegaTuff® covers

MegaSys Benefits

  • Simplifies hose selection with constant pressure ratings
  • Bends up to one-third the SAE specification
  • Saves overall hose assembly length
  • Facilitates easier plumbing and routing in tight applications
  • Requires fewer bent tube fittings
  • Eases installation with higher flexibility
  • Lowers inventory requirements
  • Extends life in bending, flexing applications
  • Reduces costs by as much as 64 percent

Exclusive Layline Treatment

MegaSys hoses have color-coded laylines and constant pressure ratings through all sizes, making the hoses easier to identify in stock and in service while reducing inventory requirements. The layline indicates hose trade name, size and pressure; SAE, EN or DIN standard; and US MSHA flame resistance compliance.

MegaCrimp® and GlobalSpiral Couplings

Two leak-free fitting designs are available: Gates MegaCrimp® coupling for one- and two-wire braid hydraulic hoses and GlobalSpiral couplings for all Gates MegaSys four- and six-spiral wire hoses up to 8,000 psi. Corrosion-resistant TuffCoat plating is standard.
