Hi All
I was using the BH on my 1025R yesterday when my left foot was covered in hydraulic oil. The hose from the power beyond kit to the BH had split. I removed the hose and inspected the split it was at the end of the hydraulic fitting on the hose the crimping job looked very amateurish as you can see from the photo.
I lost nearly a gallon by the time I realized what had happened and shut the tractor down. I had been getting ready to do the 400 hr service on the Hydraulic so this forced my hand and I did it.
The hose is a single braid so I replaced with a double braid hose with reusable screw on hydraulic end fittings.:good2:
Regards John

Wow !!! Glad you weren't hurt and found it before any tractor damage occurred . If you don't mind my asking where did you purchase the reusable fittings ? Are they similar to the AN fittings I use on my car lines ? Thanks .:cheers:

You've got two choices when it comes to hydraulic hoses.

You can go somewhere and get them made or you can purchase pre made hoses with NPT (usually male) fittings crimped on in standard lengths of 6" increments and buy the needed fittings separately to make your own. You have more possibilities with the latter option on a Sunday afternoon. Runnings and TSC carry hoses and fittings. Runnings can make custom hoses as well.

Most industrial and agricultural jobbers can make pretty much any hose, but they aren't open on Sunday, which is the only day of the week hoses burst.

Hi All
I purchased the hose and fittings at my local JD dealer they keep them in stock and cut the hose to the correct length. They are similar to AN but are rated to 6000 PSI. You screw the feral onto the hose (it has a left hand thread to hold it on the hose) then you screw the tail into the feral and hose (right hand thread) the tail screws about 2" up the hose which has 2 steel braids compared to the single of the original hose (3000 psi rated).
Unfortunately my my tractor is at a friends place he is preparing the lay a concrete apron on his 80 foot shed so I cannot get pictures until Tuesday.
Regards John
