The hose that controls the bucket curl on the H120 failed on me today. Fluid everywhere. It failed right at the point where there is a large nut that looks like it is crimped onto the hose. Anyhow, anyone know the part number for the hose?

its the one with the black cover, or if that changes from tractor to tractor it is the hose to the upper rear connector.

You can take the hose into most any auto parts store and they can make you a hose to fit and cheaper than JD stuff. I had to do that this summer summer on my H180 loader.

Find a Napa, I've had them make up hydraulic lines, they're pretty universal.

If there is a cat dealer around they will have the stuff to do it as well. Should be o-ring face fittings pretty common ends.

Thanks, I will check around today/Monday to see if anyone can do this. I assume that if a parts store can do this that I can grab the parts from TSC and do it myself? maybe that's a big assumption. :)

There are 6 of these hoses on your loader. Part numbers are listed below FYI.
As others have stated, you can have them made up locally.

Double check that the fitting is tight.


I did check when it happened but I will have another look today. I didn't notice the leak until the forks I had on kept drooping and when I looked behind me was when I noticed that there was a river of fluid that would have made any petroleum executive smile and of course my wife not smile since there was fluid all across the pavers in the driveway. I grabbed some wrenches and when I couldn't make any headway on tightening anything I focused on the mess.

Not a do it yourself

TSC may have pre-made hoses but I would get one made to order. It's not a do it yourself as the fittings are crimped on with a lot of pressure. Generally there's a die and a hydraulic crimp that can apply several tons of force to the fitting. You could buy the machine but unless you plan on tearing a lot of hoses, best just use a local store. . . Make sure they have the exact right fittings in stock to match the old one, a slight difference either won't work or could be difficult to connect.

As others said, you need special tools to make these lines.

Just take the busted line off the tractor, bring it with you to a Napa and tell them "I need this made", honestly I doubt you'd even save any money doing it yourself.

Remember to bag the ends of the hose and fittings. The hose needs bagging to keep your vehicle from getting oily. Bag the fittings on the tractor to keep dirt out while you are getting the new hose.

Don't put tape on the fittings themselves. Use a sandwich bag and wrap the tape tightly around the bag so there's no residue on threads or fittings.

Found the problem

It was, as suggested, a loose fitting in the end. I originally checked the fittings when I noticed the lead and thought they were tight. I completely disassembled the FEL from the tractor today and found that;

A. It was not an original hose that came with the FEL, it was a shorter hose that came with the Artillian Grapple.
B. When the hose is installed it is under quite a bit of tension as the hose has to go under the Tektite frame and barely reaches the black (upper rear) quick disconnect due to the length of hose and the angle of the connector.

The hose probably came loose when I was wrestling that quick disconnect at some point and it didn't really start leaking until I put it under pressure.

A quick tighten of the connections on the end of the hose and reassembly of the FEL on the tractor and the leaking is no longer there although; without a bucket, the left and right curl arms (where the quick disconnect attaches to the bucket) are out of phase meaning that when I curl (no load at all) the right hand arm curls ahead of the left hand one. Not sure if this is normal and it was way too dark to check levels so I will look again in the morning.

What I really need to do is have new hoses made from the Artillian diverter to the tractor quick disconnects, I fight those connections every time due to the angle and length.

Thanks for all the advice.

Well, in my case you get what you pay for. Some of the other posters give you much more than you pay for.

Glad it was something simple. It does make sense to get longer hoses so you won't have to fight them.

It's normal. Cycling them fully will probably align them somewhat.

Just FYI,

My John Deere dealer makes the custom hoses in their parts department and they were very competitive with the other "Non Deere" parts sources in the area....It might be worth checking with your Deere dealer just to see as it is nice to have a good relationship wit the dealer parts and service department just in case you ever need it.....Plus I like having all of the fittings exactly the same, etc. and some of the 3rd party sources in our area use a variety of different fittings.

We can get you a part number on that hose if you just want to order it from Deere! But yea I'd take to local Deere dealer and have them make it. They should have the build specs on that hose in parts doc
