Hydraulic hose
« on: August 04, 2018, 09:05:29 AM »
I poked a hole in one or the hydraulic lines on my Sundown/Ingland log grapple this week.
Did it busting down a mixed pile the tree company dropped.
Went to Napa to get a new one made.
Picked up yesterday  $100 for a 3ft hose and 2 fitting.
I almost fell over when they told me the price.
Does that sound right?

Hydraulic hose is a high markup item. Most places charge by the inch. I get most of mine from surpluscenter.com. Still expensive but less than custom made.

The hose and fittings are the cheap part it's the hose machine time that costs so much.

I feel the same way when I leave my local hyd.shop,but when you are in a jam you don't have much choice.SS seems to be the best deal around but only if you are planning ahead.

Yeah, they have you over a barrel.  A few years ago I had to have a 5/8" or 3/4" x 6' hose redone and NAPA charged me $90 while I waited about 10 minutes for them to make it.  I spent $1,000 on 17 hoses for my Davis Little Monster but that was cash and at a hydraulic shop.  These were all 1/2" and anywhere from 12" to 24" with the exception of 4 for the outriggers - those were 1/4" x 6" long.

Hydraulic repair is a good business.  My two rams for my SkyTrak cost me $600 for new seals!

4 wire or 2 wire? How big of a diameter? Swivel or other special ends? None are cheap. Easy to spend $30 on just a fitting.

Price a crimper, a dozen dies, spools of 2 and 4 wire in every size, and about 500 fittings plus bins to keep em in, reel rack, the chopsaw to cut em and an employee who has the brains to distinguish a JIC 37 vs JIC 45 vs a kobelco vs metric flat face etc etc.. then get back to me on that hundred dollar hose being expensive.

Check out tractor supply they have pre made lengths of hose and sell the different fittings.  These are good quality and very reasonable.

Here in the Midwest that would be totally ridiculous but not knowing what kind of hose and what kind of fittings I should not pass judgement seems very high to me but I go to a hydraulic hose supplier for my hoses

Most Tractor Supply hoses have IP fittings.

A couple of months ago I went to Ozark Fluid Power and had them make a 30" hose for my tractor FEL.  They use good Parker hose and fittings.  It was in the $30-$40 range and took 10 minutes.  The fittings were a bit uncommon but the hose was common.

If they get too pricey it opens the door for others....crimpers, dies, and supplies can be sometimes found at auction for penny's on the dollar.

That's not uncommon pricing. I had to replace a 6', 5/8" hose on my Case 1845, it was around $100. I have a dozer blade attachment that I blew a hose on. 3/8"x6', I bought a premade hose with pipe thread ends and fittings for around $40 at the lical farm supply store. If I dealt with more I'd probably buy some bulk hose and reusable fittings.

    Sounds high to me. I get my hoses from the local JD equipment company and I'd have thought a hose as described would be under $35 around here.

In my younger days I did excavating, kept a 50' roll of hose in my truck and a box of Aeroquip reusable fittings. It took me no time to make up a hose but those were simpler times. An unmentionable company here sells made up hoses reasonable, keep a couple of spares. You can use a longer hose as a stop gap until you get the right one. Frank C.

Iím replacing two lift hoses for my Cat forklift.

I called and got an estimated price at the local Cat dealer, $110 each, built at the dealership.  

Same thing built at a local hydraulic hose company, $40 each.  

Shop around.....

Reading @YellowHammer  reply I suddenly had visions of the Cat guy trying to convince him, in his best Dan Ackryoid / Blues Brothers voice that their hose will be better as it will have "Cat rubber, Cat lettering, Cat smell, Cat receipt".... ;D
