Our Hydraulic Hose Services
- Cat hose is available for all makes and models of equipment, with 40+ hose types and more than 3000 coupling options, with market-leading parts availability. Caterpillar couplings cover 96% of common industry fittings.
- Cat hoses exceed the SAE pressure impulse test requirement by 100%. XT hose is made in the USA and impulse tested up to 1,000 cycles to ensure long hose life.
- Cat hose also has one half the SAE bend radius. With more flexibility and requiring less bend force, it’s easier to install and offers improved performance in flexing applications.
- Abrasion resistant hose covers are available, including ToughGuard™ for the harshest operating conditions.
- Caterpillar is the only OEM to make its own hoses and has been doing so for more than 50 years.
- Stringent quality and contamination control processes ensure high-quality components.
- Cat dealer technicians are uniquely skilled to assemble and install hose and coupling products on almost all brands of equipment, using the latest tooling, assembly instructions, routing standards, inspection techniques and contamination control processes.
- Cat hose is available through dealer locations, assembled by qualified hose experts at branch locations and delivered quickly.

Our unbeatable expertise paired with rugged designs and lasting solutions means we can serve as your trusted partner.
Cat® Hose Replacements
A durable, long-lasting hose increases your machine’s life span and performance. Authentic Cat parts fit perfectly and deliver the high-quality function the brand is known for.
We offer low-, medium- and high-pressure hoses in various styles and sizes to fit a range of equipment. Our hoses work with engines, air brake lines, and heating and cooling systems. All our hoses also meet or exceed Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) 100R standards, so you get the best quality possible.
Our hoses are coated with a protective polyethylene cover and tested for endurance. Plus, couplings create a lasting connection that’s resistant to wear.
When to Replace Cat Equipment Hoses
Changing hoses on Cat equipment increases performance and maintains your machine’s condition over time. Though you may not know precisely when to replace parts, there are warning signs that can appear during regular inspections and maintenance.
Neglecting to replace a faulty hose can eventually lead to larger internal problems. Order a replacement from Thompson Tractor if you notice any of the following issues:
- Crushed/twisted hose
- Visual signs of leaking
Establishing a schedule for regular inspections and maintenance allows you to get the most out of your parts. Trust Thompson Tractor with maintenance, repairs, and caring for your equipment and parts. When you call us, we’ll work on repairing your hose right away.
