The hydraulic mule that was donated a year ago was finally tested on 3-phase power and seems to work quite well. The museum is looking for 100' of 6 AWG or 8 AWG four-wire extension cable (flexible) or three-wire + ground. This will allow us to use the mule in almost any location in hangar three.
This mule has a 10 hp motor which drives two independent systems serving up to 3000 psi. Several of the aircraft require a high-volume, high-pressure mule to fully test their hydraulic systems.
