/ Chenge Hydraulic hose in Hi Ranger bucket truck. #1
First thing to know about bucket truck hydraulics is they use a special non-conductive hose. Not found on every street corner. Had a guy from the local utility come to my parts counter one day and asked me to make a hose for the bucket truck he was driving. I told him to go call his supervisor and ask if he really wanted me to make a hose for him from Weatherhead H425 hose. He didn't come back in.
Never thought about that one:thumbsup:
Would the difference be in the fittings isolated from the wire? that is unless they have some kevlar or some other non cinductive alternate to wire.
OP, If it's inside the boom, attach a line (rope) to the old hose before you pull it out.
