Increase floor travel speed and improved speed control
Hydra Handler Max travel flow control cartridge valve updated to 7GPM version to provide higher floor travel speed. 8836 PWM card updated to high resolution version to provide easier setup. Both updates are functionally equivalent to previous components; besides providing better performance (i.e. they should not cause and issues)
Increase hose and cable life, reduced maintenance
A806245A HHA Hose Routing Inner Frame to I-Beam Retrofit Kit for Standard Hydra Handler. Converting eliminates the severe twisting of hydraulic and vacuum hoses, and electrical cables that occurs with the original routing. Conversion will take approximately three man-hours to complete.
Reduced maintenance needs, higher gripping power
Conversion from 3 Solenoid to 1 Solenoid Vacuum System on older Standard Hydra Handlers. Converting removes solenoid valves from extractor arm where they are prone to damage and creates a positive air pressure to release the battery from the left (right) cup when the selector switch is set for right (left) cup vacuum, which also blows dirt out of the vacuum line.
