I just found a crimper with all dies and rings for sale here cheap.. guy is going out of buisness and selling all his equipment, tools, etc.... So we will be making our own hoses soon...
The 2 piece ends are just that. They have a aluminum Furel(sp?) that makes up the 2 piece ends. The weather head that I use has 1 piece steel ends and are far better. I think pretty sure my local deere dealer uses parker, but I have had bad luck with ends blowing off. They were the one piece ends, 5000 psi hose.
