QC hydraulic fittings on 9020's


Recommended Posts


I need to replace the two front hydraulic female QC fittings on my 9020. Is there a Parker (or other brand) direct replacement for these?

Not without also replacing the male ends from what I understand. Are yours leaking?  I've replaced the small O-Rings in them before but that's about it.

FYI, I replaced the leaking hydraulic quick disconnects on my XL with Parker. I replaced both the male and females. I am unable to attach Parker catalog because it is a .pdf file.

FYI, I orderd extra Safeway male tips for my XL back in March from a local hydraulic vendor.  Expect to see them by end of summer.
