Having any kind of equipment breakdown on the job can be a challenge, but when it’s fitted hydraulic hose, it can be incredibly problematic. Hose lines designed to carry gas and liquids throughout your equipment under very specific conditions aren’t exactly the kind of thing you can go to Home Depot and pick up, nor would you want to.
