Thanks for all of the responses.
Tom T Sawyer: The straight up answer is to call Mike or Jason at TK. I did this last week and Jason quoted $1450 for the full B-20 package of hoses. I feel a bit guilty asking all of the lengths, so I can go to another vendor to beat their price.
RedBeard: I really don't like to discuss my sex life on timber forums, but a few weeks ago I had two 1", 10' hoses made at my local Auto Parts store to route from my Kubota SVL-90 track loader to the Ground Shark cutter. At $486.00 I considered to this be sex of some kind - and I did not enjoy it...
Kbeitz: I saw a picture of some Amish people one time. That seems to be as close as they come to East Texas. I checked in to the "screw on" fittings - the only objection here is the cost. Also, they are physically larger than the crimped fittings. This is probably not a problem in most cases. Have not given up on this because, like having my own crimper, it lets me make the hoses and fit them one at a time.
RedBeard: I have a twenty foot extension on my saw and along with changing the hoses, I would like to add hydraulic stops on the extension, add a third, or widen, the existing log loader arms and toeboards. So, when making/ordering new hoses, I will add the extra lengths of hose as needed. This is why my first thought was to buy a used hose crimper, and I have been shopping eBay and CraigsList, but again, this also looks like sex of some kind, not to mention that each crimper requires specific dies, rings, and use of specific fittings and hoses.
The TK stock hoses are one wire and with JIC type female flare ends. It would not cost much to upgrade to two wire hose and I plan to shield all of the hose that runs in the channels, then sleeve all hoses that are exposed. I think that upgrading from the TK 3500# hoses to 4800# as well as keeping the sun off the hoses should end my hose problems.
I have banged a log into a fitting that ruined a hose and pinched one of the log loader hoses.This kind of stuff will happen now and then, but should be less as I spend more time on the saw.
Anyone know of a hydraulic crimper at a reasonable price, please let me know.
