The Cool Flow hydraulic oil cooler from Loftness Specialized Equipment is designed to reduce the risk of overheating in skid-steer loaders and hydraulically powered attachments when operating in demanding applications and hot work environments. The automatic thermostat-controlled fan provides cooling to the system whenever needed to boost machine efficiency, even when an attachment is not being used.
The Cool Flow attaches to the roof of a skid steer cab, design choice meant to make it is less susceptible to vibration, back pressure, debris and potential impact damage. It is specially engineered to allow full hydraulic flow to the attachment in either direction without risk of damage to the cooler. This allows operators to run the attachment in reverse when needed, and it also protects the unit in case hydraulic hoses are accidentally reversed.
A self-cleaning design aids efficient operation. To further simplify maintenance, the bottom screen slides out for cleaning, and the hinged fan assembly can be raised to access the cooling core.
The Cool Flow has up to 40-GPM flow capacity and is compatible with all brands of skid-steer loaders. Operators can keep the unit continuously mounted to provide cooling for multiple attachments used on one skid steer.
