Does anyone have this tool?

I am assembling some push-loc fittings and hose and while it sounds easy to push some hose onto a barbed fitting.... its not. If anyone has this tool I would really like to borrow it as I dont want to purchase a $250 tool to use just a few times.

Put the fitting in a ice and lube the barb...push-twist the hose on its not that hard.

I dunno if it's the brand hose I got but I tried to heat the hose and while it got super hot it didn't help much.

So, just right off the cuff.
The fitting, hose and tool in the pic you posted is High pressure Hydraulic. Not only do you need the tool in the pic, you will need the Hydraulic Crimping tool to smash the cuff of the fitting down onto the hose properly. Kind of like PEX connections but for REAL pressure.
Hopefully you have completely different fitting and hose?

I have no clue exactly why they chose to use that style of hose and fitting to represent the product but in everything else I have seen it uses the standard push loc style of hose and fittings. I found a $50 off of $250 summit racing coupon in my desk that was still valid so I ordered it this morning. If it does not work as advertised I will return it. Otherwise you can never have too many tools I suppose. I believe I will find myself using this style of fitting and hose a bit more often now that I will own a tool that makes putting them together easy.

Believe me I didn't want to buy this tool but after putting on just 2 hose ends with another 6 to go my hands were like, nope.

is that for hydro assist? If so go find a company that can make you some high quality hoses. Mine costs me 100 bucks and now I use the ones I made when I installed the hydro as trail spares.

We agree with this. Almost every failure we have seen related to Hydro was due to poor quality hose and push lock fittings. Push lock are good to keep in the tool back in case of failure. Outside of that, head down to the local Parker store and get some real lines made. The burst strength is superior and we opt for an upgrade to a liner that is designed to take abuse and not rupture.

It is a little more work to get everything set since once they are crimped, they are done and you can't change orientation, but it is worth it. We've had a steering pump blow on the trail and I can tell you that once you lose the fluid, you're not turning the wheels.

This is for hydro assist but only on the low pressure return side. Howe said I had to use this style of hose on the return side because the hose and fitting ID for push loc hose is larger than high pressure hose of the same AN - size. He was super adamant about keeping the pump fed for my application. (LS engine swap with a funky accessory drive)
