Old Farmer Tip #2: Hydraulic Hose

The second tip in my series is about hooking and unhooking hydraulic hoses. Took me a while to figure out why sometimes it seems there was pressure on the hydraulic hose when I went to hook it up and then I realized if I unhook the hydraulic hose with pressure on it then there is pressure when I go to hook it back up again.

So to make sure there isn’t pressure I almost always shut the tractor off and move the hydraulic lever back-and-forth to release all pressure before I unhook any hydraulic hoses. Let me know if this helps any of you.

    I like the look of those caps on your connectors. Everything I have only has the little plastic insert plugs, but they don’t seem to be effective in preventing the buildup of ice in the fittings. I’ll have to look around to find if there are aftermarket caps like you’ve got.
