Anyone who runs hydraulic equipment can tell you what a pain it is when a line blows!! Down time, lost fluid, a mess to clean up. You name it!! Dan Goldman at CPS Auto and Marine now has the capability to make new hoses, in shop and mobile using his new Gates setup. CPS also carries the entire Amsoil line of full synthetic hydraulic fluids. These extreme performance fluids will provide the highest levels of protection and efficiency in your machines. Extreme wear protection, high heat capable, very resistant to varnish. Just a few of the benefits of Amsoil's Hydraulic oils. Operating equipment in environmentally sensitive areas? Think golf courses!! Amsoil has a biodegradable hydraulic oil.
I was recently talking with an operator of several skid loaders. The objection to using Amsoil's hydraulic oils was this: His machines typically lose a hydraulic line frequently enough that the hydraulic oil in the machine gets replaced on a relatively regular basis anyway. While that is certainly an argument, I would suggest that Amsoil will provide far superior protection to delicate internal components such as pump vanes, pistons, valves, etc. It does not take much time for inferior oils to leave varnish deposits and cause wear. Additionally, Amsoil hydraulic oils condition and protect hydraulic hoses, helping to prevent costly hose ruptures.
But, when you do find that you need a hose replaced, CPS Auto and Marine will get you fixed and back in business!!

I'll be sure to get some hydraulic oils to protect whatever hydraulic hose I get. I have yet to find one though. So it all depends on whether or not my local hardware stores have any.
Thanks for helping me understand that one must wear extreme protection gears to ensure that they are not exposed to high heat and other substances. I guess that just means that pieces of equipment such as custom hydraulic hoses would have to be made from durable materials as well. They probably have to be able to resist chemicals or substances that can be harmful to people, so they must be secure to prevent spillage in their workplace.
