FDT hydro lift hoses

Recommended Posts

went to my local NAPA to get some but they wanted 56.00 and some odd cents. So while I was at work went up to our express store and had some made up . But the catch on the old hoses all the fittings have a 110 to 112 deg bends to them and most I was able to get was a 90 deg elbow so I had them make the hoses 1/2 in long to allow for that and all. and still beat the price of NAPA and had them before I was off work.






DOnt mind how the LL looks I set the pump and lift on here to make sure both hoses were long enough and all . They fit good just a little tighter with the shorter elbows on the fittings . But they are going to work out good and have the new look to them also . LOL

I used to work in a heavy equipment/truck garage & the guys will still make my hoses for free. But they only have 90degree bends, but with the xtra length it worked finesm01

If you can wait a few days to get your hoses, these folks have excellent prices and ship within just a few days of receiving an order. [url]http://www.discounthydraulichose.com/[/url] They charge $10 plus the cost of the fittings and hose to make up a custom hose. John U
