For the common pipe thread and jic flare ; Surplus center as mentioned but I still use a lot of the old reuseable  fittings that everyone threw away.

I use NAPA for hose and hydraulic fitting ONLY when it's the weekend and I need to get a machine running. Fittings cost about 4 times what the local hydraulics wholesale supply sells them for, and completed hoses are about 2 two 3 times. We have several good hydraulics shops in town. One primarily sells fittings and they are the cheapest in town. The other sells mostly custom fabricated hoses and since that's their specialty, they are the cheapest. I prefer to get my hose made by them because they pull a plug through the hoses to make sure there is no debris left in them, and they put a heat shrink covering on the ends to keep them from getting contaminated during installation. All for the best price in town.

We have 2 NAPAs close to me. One services the farm stuff primarily and the other is more for auto parts. Same name, completely different prices, attitudes, and abilities. They are competitively priced at what they do best. But hoses... not so much.

Had to replace a hose on my JD backhoe.  Was quite surprised that the proper part number hose at JD dealer was about half the price of Napa and the hydraulic shop.  Glad I was not in a hurry and was going by JD anyway!

John Deere's pricing for parts is hard to figure. I've got a bunch of old ones and some big parts are reasonable wile some simple little thing they take a tuck on you. Seems they get your confidence up and then nail you. Frank C.

Had a 3ft. 3/8 hose with jic fittings made up this at local Case/IH dealer this week.   38.00  We also have a hydraulic shop nearby that is reasonable as well.

I read this post couple days ago and thought it had been so long since I had to buy a hydraulic hose I had no idea what my cost had been. Well I found out this morning working the Kubota! Blew three hoses on the loader digging out a six inch black birch stump. 3 lines each less than 30” long, 4 straight fittings @ $13 ea. and two elbows @ $25 ea, hose was $44 and then tax. Came to $154.76 total. A local garage, dropped their wrenches and built my 3/8” @ 4800psi lines.

Blew a pressure washer hose right at a rub spot a foot from the current fitting.  Chopped it off, went into my bins, found the right end and fired up the trusty old aeroquip.
