I'm replacing some hydraulic lines on a loader and the lengths I need are not standard from what seems to be typical "off the shelf" lengths, so I'm weighing my options for custom hoses.
Most of the hoses I need I ordered from Surplus Center. I bought all 100R17 hoses...here's an example: https://www.surplusc...SI-903-3812.axd
Surplus Center does not do custom lengths or hose-end fittings. My local CarQuest makes custom hoses from Gates tubing, but they are pretty expensive (about $50 for a 66" hose with standard 3/8" NPTM rigid fittings). I found this online source that brings that cost down by about 50%:
Only thing is I know nothing about Hydraulax hoses. I sent Hydraulax an email this morning asking where they manufacture their products.
I'm trying to ensure Made in USA parts, but trying to conserve cash as well. If anyone has a better source for custom hoses, please share!
