Check Hydraulic Hose Wear 02/09/12 2:39:10 PM|
Check hydraulic hose wear periodically.
If a hydraulic hose starts to show wear, you’re often faced with the inevitable. The area of wear will fail eventually and create a sudden repair need that can set you back several hundred dollars. When you take into account the cost of a new hose, lost hydraulic fluid, service installation and unexpected downtime, the price of replacing a worn hose now is more practical in the long run.
Look out for:
Leaks at fitting connections.
Damaged, cut or abraded cover.
Kinked, crushed or twisted hose.
Hard, stiff, heat-cracked or charred hose.
Blistered, soft, degraded or loose cover.
Cracked, damaged or badly corroded fittings.
