Aeroquip Hose

https://www.summitracing.com/search/brand/aeroquip

Any speed shop in your area will carry this also. As said above...easy to fix with simple hand tools. The fitting are pricey but can be reused.

If you're replacing Hydraulic hose...I'd go to a shop and have it made/crimped. Any CAT dealer can do this with CAT branded XT hose.

Thanks all for your replies!
Duct tape and a hacksaw will work too (if working with braided to keep the exterior stainless wires from going everywhere.)

No real need , a non 90deg hose end may not look pretty but works 100% as well as the true square cut (with in reason).

When I redid some oil pressure lines, I used AN fittings and braided SS hose.
I wrapped with tape, then I cut the hose on my table saw using a grit grinding cutting blade.
A circular saw with same blade would also work. It just grinds right through everything quickly, makes a smooth cut. The grit blade wont grab the SS braided outer covering.
