    Who here utilizes a hose crimping machne?

    I think Im ready to buy one. How do you go about choosing what hose then get the machine to match? Where can you buy bulk hose? I dont know too much about these machines except that Im tired of buying so much hose. I like the blue Goodyear 2 wire but anything comparable will suffice.

    The machines are pretty much universal, so they will crimp what ever hose you like to use as long as you have the correct die. I buy hose assemblies, and then repair them. I have found no substantial cost benefit over buying hose in bulk.

    Ed,
    Our crimping machine is one of the best tools we have. We buy pressure hose in 1000 ft lots with no ends and build our own hoses, repair blowouts and make jumper hose when needed. Call me we are getting quotes from wholesale companies. Getting ready to order soon.

    I thought I remembered you talking about this Jim. I'm sure the investment could pay for itself in 2-3 seasons. I will call you soon.

    Ed,

    if you don't mind me asking. What machine are you looking at and where are you buying from and how much do these machines cost?

    Thanks

    It will pay for itself in a couple weeks, your never down and not waisting hose that burst anymore.

    As far as I'm concerned the first time your not down because you can fix your own hose you paid for the machine.

    You mean like the 20 hoses I had on the floor that were repaired as soon as the machine came in? Well worth it, and I would not have found my machine without Ron's help.

    We use ours all the time well worth the investment. In fact we have 2 one powered and one with manual hydrolics. The hose is really not much cheeper than the pre made lengths in most cases I have found it to be more expensive.

    Scott hit it right on the nail. Every other day we are fixing hose throughout the season. Guys come in at 8pm with busted hose. Fixed in 5 minutes. Well worth the time saved.

    Yes, these twist on but a wrench or crescent wrench helps a lot to get them tight.

    This piece is actually 2 pieces, the inner and outer piece.

    The inner piece comes out of the outer piece.

    You thread the outer piece over the hose cover.

    Then you thread the inner piece into the hose and outer cover (the outer piece has a threads at the front for the inner piece to thread into and then it goes into the inside of the hose if this makes sense).

    The inner piece forces the hose between the inner piece and the outer piece and is a very strong fit, I have used these many times and the hose never failed at that threaded repair piece, not one time.

    I keep some of those reusable hose ends in my tool box but don't repair out in the field.

    Easiest way I found is use a metal cutting chop saw to cut the hose so the end is square and then thread the outer piece over the hose end, then put some vaseline into the hose and over the inner piece then thread the inner piece into the outer piece threads and into the hose then you are done.

    This takes about 10 minutes if you have the chopsaw, you can probably cut it with an angle grinder but it might fray too many wires and leave the end of the hose all frayed and it will be hard to use this repair piece as the outer piece has to go over the end of the hose and if it is frayed badly this piece might not go over the hose. The chopsaw makes it a lot easier to repair.

    These are about $8.00 more or less so keeping some in your shop would be a good idea for those repairs at odd hours to get back to work if you don't have the spare hose on hand.

    I have not looked but there might be a youtube video showing this, they have millions of videos there, you just never know.

    Hope this helps.

    Tip to keeping the wire from fraying so much when you cut with an angle grinder. Wrap some duct tape,or in a pinch, electrical tape at the point you are going to cut. It will make the outward cover strong enough that it won't fray. I have also used a hacksaw with some success, but I still had to tape wrap it. Just remove the tape before you put the end on.
