    Default Cats Eye or Crossfires Anyone?

    Has anyone ever used the Cats Eye or Crossfire Pressure Equalize Valve, and if so how did they work for you.

    I've had the Cats eyes for 5 years, only problem I had was one of the lines rubbed a hole in itself, they sent me a whole NEW set of 8 lines, I replaced the one and still have 7 left 8) 8)

    Did they help in the tire wear, and extend the life of your tires?

    I got 280,000 out of my last set of drives, I don't think I extended it by much, maybe 20,000 miles or so,BUT they are easier to check and they wore out perfectly, no getting knobby or uneven wear.

    I have Bridgestone drives on it now, so I'm not sure how many miles I will get out of these, I got 180,000 miles on them now, and they still look pretty good.

    The forum "glitched", and all the posts from today, and most of yesterday were lost.

    If you want me to re-post the info I put in this thread, I'd be happy to.

    Cat's Eye
    Crossfire

    Cat's Eyes are made with rubber tubing, Crossfires are made with steel braided tubing.

    Cat's Eyes will tell you if a tire is underinflated, Crossfires will tell you if a tire is underinflated or overinflated.

    Crossfires can be found on eBay every once in a while for about $50 a piece. To do an entire tractor, you will have to buy 4 of them (one for each tandem)



    I did find this auction on eBay for a pair of Cat's Eyes......really cheap, but they are 110 psi, not 100 psi.

    You can also get Cat's Eyes with the STEEL BRAIDED HOSE. The company I'm leased onto has them, and every one has the steel braided hoses.
    Destroy the cities...
    and they will rebuild them.
    Destroy the farms...
    and grass will grow in the streets of the cities.

    Destroy the economy of the blue-collar worker...
    and grass will grow in the executive offices.

    The bill has come due.
    ( R E T I R E D , and glad of it)

    Are you sure they didn't just replace the rubber hoses? I've heard of others doing this.
