Many of our dealers have been asking us when we are going to become a distributor. Well the answer to that question is NOW! Bird’s Radiator Service and Hydraulics (a sister company to Tubes n’ Hoses International) is now a distributor of all inventory that a Tubes n’ Hose dealer might need. Bird’s is direct with all their suppliers and are able to compete with other distributors. There will be product pricing on the Tubes n’ Hoses website in the future, but for now please send your orders by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax to 972-937-1368. Bird’s will in turn send you the pricing and availability of the items for your approval before shipping. For all your tooling needs, you will continue to call the Tubes n’ Hoses office at 972-923-0766.
Bird’s Radiator Service and Hydraulics will be handling Gates Hydraulic fittings and hose as well as Kurt fittings and hose. The Kurt brand is made in the U.S.A. and what makes it unique is that their W series fittings work with 1 wire, 2 wire, and 4 wire hose. They have a full line of R7 couplings (thermoplastic), and a full line of PTFE fittings (stainless braided hose), and crimpable R5 fittings (D.O.T hose). Bird’s will also be stocking: a full line of hydraulic adapters, all brass fittings, cam and groove fittings (all types), Milton air products, Harris/Lincoln welding supplies and alloys, A/C fittings, power steering ferrules, braze on stems and nuts, and battery cable and ends. If they don’t have what you are looking for they make every effort to find it for you.
We do have the Kurt Hydraulic catalog and the Ideal Air catalog available. Please contact Bird’s Radiator Service and Hydraulics at 972-937-7432 to have one mailed to you. You may also continue to use the old Tubes n’ Hoses catalog numbers if you like, Bird’s can cross them over for you.
