Do you need to replace hoses if they are perished and you can see the steel braiding?
This sounds more a case of old age rather than rubbing through.No.
This is an extract from the British Fluid Power Association.
The cover is torn and/or deteriorated, and reinforcement wires show signs of being rubbed, broken, or corroded.
Replace the hose assembly, and use a protective sleeve or hose guards. The hose assembly should be re-routed and, if required, the proper size clamps should be installed to prevent contact between hose and other objects.
Pirtek 'only' twice as much..... feeling generous,lol I could write a very good book on my Pirtek days.......I've ordered some hoses from TCP (the people who made the dumper) and apparently they get them from pirtek. My local pirtek quoted me with 45% discount and were still twice as much. You would think the same company would have similar prices.
To be fair to the local place I didn't know what thread the 6, 90° fittings were so maybe thats what the extra £80 was for.
agreed ..... I've also had some hoses off a guy on ebay who is very well priced too ... he has a long standing ad on there for them ... this bloke ... he's gone up a quid a hose ... IMHDO they're not dear and he will make you what ever you wantSeconded. Just watch the online order form as it can default your hose ends so you don’t get a matched hose...
