  • Anybody fix there own jetter hoses

    I need to fix my 1/2" pirahna green 4000psi hose. I looked and each brand of hose needs it's own special couplers and special swaging tool. The crimp dies and pusher is $200 but the hand machine is $700 wow. I would like to buy the dies and use a hydraulic unit like a greenlee to crimp them am I out of my mind and have to buy the pirhana stuff?

    I have taken my jetter to a shop that works on hydraulic hoses and have them fix my hose for me when I wear out a part of it. The place by me services the hydraulics on the garbage trucks.

      I do the same.
      Local car parts store in town makes hydraulic hoses to order.
      Replaced many on the truck, hydraulic system and jetter system is one in the same.

        after breaking a hose on the job and stopping me in my tracks lost 3 hours as i had to unwind 500' of hose and take the hose in. then try to wind the 500' back in without tangles

        i invested in a parker hydraulic crimper.

        1/4''- 1/2'' dies. haven't used it yet

        the thermoplastic hose are different dies than the wire hydraulic hoses.

        a hand swedging machine typically only puts on ends. not couplers.

        i also carry extra hose just in case now and leave the crimper at the shop.

        have 500' of 1/2'' and 400' of 3/8'' and 200' of 1/4''on reels. then a bunch of jumper hoses 1/8''- 1/2''.

          I looked at parker they don't have the pirhana dies just parker. Has anybody bought the pirhana crimper? The hydraulic version just does 3/4 on up I need 1/2" so looks like the manual is the only one I can buy. I wanted a hydraulic generic crimper so that I could fix all my hydraulic hoses also.

            Been there! Probably the best solution I found is to buy the hose ends from piranha (I have 10 on hand), then take them to a hydraulic repair company. Here in Dallas, I found two that would do it. The shop I went with wouldn't warranty it, but its been on there for at least 2 years now. It seems that the Piranha end is a special little booger. Great hose though.

              I have some 3/8 Pirahna the black stuff. I have put new fittings on there twice in three years. I used CNH Case New holland skid steer stuff. Works fine. I replace hose ends once a year. It cost 10 dollars at the Case dealer.
