Does anyone see any issues with switching from regular line connections (wrench connect) to quick connect lines? Pressure problems? Other? Thanks

Re: Any problem with switching to quick connect hydraulic li

No, I installed quick connectors on the hoses for the loader on my D-15 (high pressure (3200 psi)-low volume) that I need to take loose to remove it.
Makes it a lot easier to remove when I want. Pull four pins, and pop loose two hose connectors. ;)

Thanks Dave, I was concerned looking at that big return line off my 750 backhoe attachment. Looks like a 1 inch line so I thought putting a quick connect might cause issues. Don't know much about the dynamics of this hydraulic stuff. Chris :cry:

Shouldn't be a problem. Quick connectors are made to flow the same amount of fluid as the size hose they are made for.
