Here are multiple hydraulic hose specifications, and hydraulic hoses can be categorized into skive hydraulic hose and no-skive hydraulic hose based on the hydraulic hose cover.

In this guide, let’s see the skive vs no skive hydraulic hose, and this is the explanation of the advantages of skive versus no-skive hydraulic hose.

What Is Skive Hydraulic Hose?

Skive refers to that you need to remove or shave some parts of the hydraulic hose cover, and/or inner tube prior to the hydraulic hose ends, to fit the size of the hydraulic hose fittings, for hydraulic hose assemblies.

The skive hydraulic hose has a thicker hydraulic hose cover, you have to shave some layers of hydraulic hose rubber cover to make it much slimmer, thinner to make it much easier to be insert into the hydraulic hose fittings.

The hydraulic hose skiving machine can help you shave the hydraulic hose cover, making it suitable for the hydraulic hose fitting size, to connect the hydraulic hoses to complete the hydraulic hose installation.

Here we have hydraulic hose SAE 100r1A/DIN EN853 1ST with a thicker hydraulic hose cover, this is for you to use the hydraulic hose skiving tool to shave hydraulic hose cover rubber, during the hydraulic hose assembling process.

And this is the video showing you how to skive the hydraulic hose.

What Is No-Skive Hydraulic Hose?

The no-skive hydraulic hose is designed without needing the skiving step, this is the ready-to-assemble hydraulic hose, and the non-skive hydraulic hose is manufactured with the thinner hydraulic hose, compared with the skive hydraulic hose.

PS: Sometimes, the “No-Skive” is printed on the hydraulic hose layline, which can tell the hydraulic hose technicists don’t need to use the hydraulic hose skiving blade to remove the hydraulic hose cover. And the “No-Skive” hydraulic hose is applied widely due to the convenience of assembling hydraulic hose.
