Happy birthday, Timberline.

That smell is the smell of 'getting back to work'.  Or as we used to say while entering the nasty fog around the Rumford/Mexico mill, "the smell of jobs".

Thanks NRE.  And kinda like my friends Monte Carlo when we lay down ruber ;D.  I ran into a guy with a 58 oliver industrial tractor. He said he still has a lot of the original hoses. Is that because he parks it undercover and does a every 5 yrs hydro fluid change or are the hoses made better back then or lower hyrdo psi on the old machines? Good luck bm with the hose machine.

Sunlight degrades hoses quick. Every 2 yrs we change all of the hoses on deck exposed to salt and light, the barges get eaten up, rolls of petro tape, wrap every fitting and they keep from rusting to bad. Im picking the machine up when I get home, I asked the guy how much they wanted for the cabinet and bench it was mounted too, he said they where going to probably throw it away.  :o.   I had my wife at the bank the next morning before the doors opened, I always find the deals when I'm stuck here.  :D

Timberline;  Probably all three reasons.   :)    Lack of sun and lower psi is probably the main ones but good maintenance never hurt anything either.   Changing the oil regular would keep some moisture out of the system.  My old backhoe has probably self changed by that time period though...   ::)

Timberline,
I suspect rubber products are nowhere near as environmentally stable as they once were.
Older equipment tended to be high volume/ low pressure, which would put less internal stress on the hoses.

Thanks it seem like environment and maintenance and psi are the reason for hose blowing. We don't put a ton of hours on our splitter but its like 15+ years old and never blew a hose.we keep it covered when not in use and change fluid ever so often. I worry sometimes when it's hot outside and the splitter is really hot and getting blasted by hot hydro fluid from a broken hose. The hoses from the outside look new. An I a worry wart?

 Got off the boat in Albany and ran out to New Haven to pick it up, it barely fit in the wife's Subaru Legacy but I'm so cheap I didn't want to pay the tolls for a dually going out.  :D  works good, needed a switch.  Called today to the local supplier about more hose, they want to meet with me when I get home, want to set me up to be a parker dealer in our area.  :o  99% of the time I have the worst luck ever but lately I don't know.

Who do you get your crimp ends from? I have a weather head press and was getting them through napa but found out discount hyd hose is way cheaper and they're the same fittings, you'll like the conveinience of having your own crimper
