OK. This brand new cramp that another hydraulic shop put on the hose companies hose blew again today. It only happens with hot water. The crimps are not penetrating the wire only the rubber casing so it warms up and slips off… is there any crimps that penetrate the metal so it stays on? Or is it not meant to attach to the metal so it protects the interior hose tube?
I would just replace the hose but the thing is, the hose is amazing. It’s just these ends won’t stay on. If I have to crimp ends on once a month or whatever I’m fine with that vs paying a shop triple what it would cost me. I know there are no manual crimp machines that can handle the pressure of the hose for our application, but i’m willing to get a real hydraulic system to do my own crimps since it will be used long term.
The main question of this post is, do you guys have any recommendations for a machine that won’t break the bank but gets the job done for crimping hoses? Any recommendations for brand fittings that you know will stay on and grips the metal if that’s a thing? Thanks guys
