hydraulic pump return line

Bob Does the pump return line HAVE to be the wire reinforced type hose or can it be just a thick walled hose?
Geoff a word NO. Look on it this way. The pressure side is the oil on its way to wotk and is getting compressed all the time....REINFORCED hoses. The return line is on the way home...job done....finished for the day...therefore the oil is more or less freewheeling downhill so the hose don't have to be reinforced. That is the way it was explained to me when I was an apprentice more years ago than I care to remember....Geoff
