air hose

Well I went and bought two rolls of this air hose
http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=42185
when it was on sale for 9.99. One of them broke today by the metal end. I wouldnt say I got more than 10 hrs working time from it. I'll take it to work tomorrow and see if I can put another end on it and make it work. you get what you pay for.

A couple years ago I bought 2 hoses from them, they were on sale for $12.99. The ones I got were Goodyear rubber and I still use them almost every day.....
Sometimes I guess you just get lucky....

you know, they do sell genuine Goodyear hoses at discount prices too. I think I paid $20 for a 3/8 x 100' roll of the Goodyear from them. I bought 2 rolls of the the Central Pneumatic blue poly coated hoses, other than for kinking easilly, there still working good. both are outside 100% of the time, on rolls. 1 is 50', the other is 100'. the 50' is 3 years old, sun faded now, still working good.

That Central Pneumatic blue hose does hold up really good but it is almost stiff as a plastic pipe! That black Goodyear hose is a steal and sometimes they even have a premium Goodyear hose but I have not used that one. I bought the Goodyear for my shop reel and a couple of those blue ones to use outside where they have been in the sun, run over by vehicles and just generally get abused but they hang right in there and no leaks yet. I have noticed that the blue ones tend to swell quite a bit when exposed to hot sun but mine never have more than 90 PSI on them and most times less than that, not sure if I would want much pressure on them when left exposed to the sun on a hot day.

I've got a couple Goodyear hoses but haven't used them that much. I've also got an orange hose (don't know if I bought it a HF or not) that sounds like the blue ones that oldred has. It's stiff and if the weather is cold it's hard to straighten out.

I bought two 50 ft rolls of Cambell Hausefeld hose at Wal-Mart about 10 years ago...it is still holding up good.

I have 2 50' 3/8" ID hoses (rated for 600psi burst) that I bought from Homier Tools for $10 each. One is iron stiff, and the other twists and bends like a contortionist rattlesnake. I bought them on the same day, and they've both been in use for nearly 5 years now. Some day, I'll buy another when I need it. Just stay away from the cheapy hose ends.


In a while, Chet.
