My daughter went into O'Reillys for a couple of 4 foot hoses yesterday the place that makes them for most of the time is closed for a week or so for vacation family run they charged her $35 a hose nothing fancy just half inch male ends it seem quite a bit high to me what do you all think then they acted like they were doing her a favor to make them.

If I know I need them ahead--Sloan Express. 4 ft hose would be 10 to 11 dollars.

You got that last sentence right. Cost me $163 for an inch and seven sixteenths bearing last month.The lock collar didn't even come with it. Haven't found a bag of seed corn for next year yet for under $200. This stuff's really wearing on me.

That is about the going rate. I have a hose machine here. I charge $10 for the simple ends and 1/2 two wire hose is right at $5 per foot. So if I had made them the cost would have been: 4 x $5 = $20 plus 2 x $10 = $20 for total of $40.

So they where not out of line. The cost of all supplies is sky rocketing and I don't think we have seen anything yet. The government debt is going to eventually cause inflation that the Feds can't hide. Then high energy cost will help finish of the economy. I am afraid tough time are in our future.

ARe they still the crappy Chinese-made ones? I've had problems with those in the past, won't use them again.

Yes having a hose made will cost you twice what a premade hose will. In my area O'Reilly's is the cheapest place to get a hose made then if you want to get raped you go to one of the fastener places. Most of the time I go to the local farm and home place and buy pre-made

Always been that way. Back in the 70s when the Ford dealer here got the first crimper I ever saw,they had them up front premade for half what they soaked you to make one out in the shop.

That sounds right to me. I keep hose repair kits on hand, to get me out of a jam. I keep saying that I am going to list out some of my more used hoses and buy spares at TSC. The situation does show you that you need to be watching for wear points and damage.

About right to mabey a bit cheap if you got good quality hose. If you got the one wire Dayco crap... not so much. You're going to pay if you got better Parket/Gates hose.

That's a little high but to be expected from auto parts places.
Here in my repair shop a 4' 1/2" hose with 1/2" male pipe
ends would be around $26-28. I use only Weatherhead hose
and fittings.

The thing to remember with hyd. hose is that it has
a shelf life. Who knows how long it's been sitting
on a shelf. Going to a popular hose shop that makes
up your hoses usually gives a fairly new hose
instead of one that's been on the shelf for 2 years
or more.
