Hydraulic Hoses Online source?

Anyone have a good online source for hydraulic hose? The two local places
don't stock many of the fittings for my backhoe and I'd prefer to replace
more than 1 hose at a time. I thought there should be a place online where
you can select a hose, a length, and fittings, then they would assemble it a
ship it to you. Or perhaps I could just buy the fittings & hose and pay the
local shop to crimp the ends on.
Also, I'm looking for some of the wire spring coil that goes over the hoses
to protect them.
Thanks!

Your local shop should invest in the fittings you need. Unless you went out of the area to buy your equipment, they will surely get more requests for those fittings. If they are not willing to do that, I'd take my business elsewhere. I am sure you can buy the fittings online, and probably custom assemblies. Have you considered buying a used crimper and the fittings you need? You can usually pick up an older machine for around $500, often less.

They have all kinds of bulk hydraulic hose, and fittings. they are in Nebraska. As for myself, whenever I have to change out a hydraulic hose and since I don't want to invest in the crimp equipment, I get a new hose and install reusable or field attachable fittings. They come in both JIC 37 and pipe sizes. All you need is a couple of regular wrenches. Might be double the cost of a made up crimped assembly on average, but I like to be able to work on my stuff with a minimum of outside help. Make sure you get the same number of wires in the hose. Most tractor type stuff I work on my farm is about 2000psi and most of the hose is 2 wire hose. Also, I can order Gates bulk hydraulic hose at my local Big A auto parts store. Try NAPA or Big A as a source for hose. Don't know if all the stores are equipped with the crimp gear, but my local Big A store has the setup.
