    can a 100 ft charging hose be repaired? I need a new end... do "Hose-Man" shops do this type of hose repair?

    a hundred foot hose is a lot of money to throw away.


    I know Dice would figure a way to have it fixed, if it was his hose.

    Just wondering, why such a long charging hose?

    I've never seen anybody around here with one.
    Get back to work.

    Here in our area we have a company called ###### rubber. They make up any kind of hose , can get any type of fitting etc...

    check your local yellow pages for an industrial rubber supplier

    I carry 200' of 3/8" and 325' of 1/4". Why so long? Ever try and carry 30- 30lb cans of gas up a 30' ladder, and 400' across a roof???? That sucks BAD. Easier to set 125 lb bottles in the parking lot and toss the hose over the edge...

    I really use the 1/4" a lot. Most of those are 25' and 50' lengths, one is a 100'. There are 4-50' 3/8 hoses.

    I'm with Dice on the copper, hose clamp, flare block thing if you can't find someone that can repair it. A good truck parts wholesaler might be able to help, or a large welding wholesaler.
