The tubing and hoses shown here are used when hydraulic fluid is supplied through exposed plumbing. Hydraulic hose is ideal for long, flexible hydraulic connections, such as the line from a power source to a fixture. Steel hydraulic tubing is ideal for permanent fixture plumbing where a rigid connection is desired.
This handy, high-quality tool is designed especially for flaring heavy-wall hydraulic tubing in 5/16" O.D. size. The Flaring Tool consists of two clamping jaws with a wire handle and a striking tool. The only other tools required are a hammer and a vise.
