Possible, but high pressure hydraulic hoses have usually press fittings that are attached to the hose at the time of manufacture. If this is the case, if would be easier and maybe less expensive in time and manpower to just replace the hose as an entire assembly.

Had problems with a car hyd steering once... the same you are mentioning. Also tryied to repair... thought it would be cheaper... it was not... had to change the hose anyway.

Yes it is definitely cheaper to purchase most industrial products fully assembled rather

than repair, but sometimes in the U.S. farm implement repair shops are cheaper, but

not all regions.

You would need to disengage hydraulic hose by unscrewing the hose assembly bushing from the engine and also the other end opposite and go to a agriculture

supply store or farm implement or marine retailer and purchase a new hose it is not

the type hose you can clamp and repair yourself. These hoses are normlly pneumaticly press sealed.

Dear

Anyway you can change the high pressure hose but you have to be sure that you did not lose air and hydraulic oil
