Hydraulic Hose Service

Not all hoses are created equal. Each Riggs location has state-of-the-art Caterpillar hose presses to ensure you get the quality workmanship you have come to know and trust. All of our hoses are assembled by certified technicians; visually and dimensionally checked, then cleaned to remove contaminants, and then finally capped. In addition, Riggs has gone to great lengths to ensure a comprehensive inventory of hose parts that our customers require. We reviewed the equipment our customers own, determined the most common required couplings and seals for those machines, and then compared those items to our on-hand inventory. We then added additional inventory to meet the anticipated needs of our customers based on those findings. The result? We now stock nearly 4,000 line items – a total of over 10,000 pieces – statewide! If you need it . . . we have it!

Hydraulic Testing

All components that Riggs CAT rebuilds or refurbishes are tested. Our technicians will not send a cylinder, pump, or motor back to the field without first being performance tested. We pressure test hydraulic cylinders at normal system pressure – not just testing the seal. Our pump and motor test bench allows us to simulate machine or system

Contamination Control

Our Little Rock Hydraulic facility is climate controlled to minimize the opportunity for contamination. With the current sophisticated hydraulic systems that are designed with ultra – tight design specifications, any intrusion by contaminates can cause catastrophic failures or greatly reduce system life. We have stringent standards of cleanliness that we adhere to in order to minimize, with the intent to eliminate, component killing contaminates.
