Gates Releases MXT with XtraTuff Plus Cover

Gates, a leading global provider of application-specific fluid power and power transmission solutions, has introduced the MEGASys™ MXT™ with XtraTuff™ Plus cover (MXT-XTP), a universally applicable hydraulic hose, featuring Gates’ patent-pending wire-braid technology. MXT-XTP offers all the benefits of Gates’ industry-leading MXT hose – compact size, light weight, flexibility and high performance – with added durability from the company’s proven, industry-leading XtraTuff Plus (XTP) cover.

Gates’ lightweight, high-performance MXT hose is proven in the factory and field, around the world, being specified in by OEMs and used repeatedly by replacement channels. It’s 25% lighter weight than conventional hoses, making it easier to lift and handle, plus MXT is up to 49% more flexible, allowing faster and more ergonomic installations. Gates has enhanced the MXT hose with the optional XTP cover, maintaining MXT hose performance while adding 25 times the abrasion resistance and enhanced ozone resistance, as validated by a rigorous 800-hour ozone exposure test. The XTP cover was previously introduced as the standard cover on MXG™ 4K. MXT-XTP hose meets or exceeds relevant ISO, SAE and EN performance standards, is MHSA-certified for flame resistance, and is certified leak-free per SAE J1754 when used with Gates MegaCrimp™ couplings.

As a universally applicable premium hydraulic hose, MXT-XTP is suitable for the most demanding fluid power challenges across a broad array of industries and applications. Its broad applicability allows customers to simplify and consolidate inventory with a standardized, multi-use hose.

MXT-XTP is available globally, wherever Gates hydraulic products are sold. Please contact your Gates salesperson or visit to learn more.
