Hydraulic Hose
Hydraulic Hose

Heavy duty equipment require pipes to convey fluids that make an entire machine operate smoothly. These pipes vary in sizes and pressure thresholds.

Different names exist for different categories of hydraulic hoses; low-strength ones are often called mild or small pressure hoses, medium-strength ones are called average-pressure hoses (also colloquially named two-wired pipes) while high-strength hoses are called heavy duty pipes (or four-wired pipes).

Note: The word pipe can be used interchangeably with hoses.

What category of hydraulic pipe is suitable for use?

There are different sizes of hydraulic pipes available in the market place. The appropriate one to use is dependent on the kind of fluid the pipe is expected to transport e.g hydraulic, fuel, engine oil, gear oil e.t.c. Also, the size of the fitting, and pressure demands of the machinery are both crucial contributing factors in the selection of an hydraulic pipe.

Are hydraulic pipes readily available?

Hydraulic pipes are available at vehicle spare-parts stores. Online availability is also guaranteed at popular e-commerce websites such as; alibaba, amazon, jumia e.t.c.

How much do hydraulic pipe cost?

Hydraulic pipe is an imported commodity in Nigeria, hence its cost is high. Local production is limited, as Nigeria relies heavily on imported hydraulic hoses to meet up with nation-wide demand. Intending buyers will need to let go of at least ₦1,500 to snap up a small-sized hydraulic hose.

It is a norm for prices to swing wildly from ₦1,500 for smaller hoses to ₦50,000 for bigger stronger hoses of about 30 metres length. Prices are also tied to factors such as length of pipe, strength of pipe, and grade of fittings.

Expect prices to fluctuate often due to the volatility of the naira-dollar exchange rates.


Mini-sized (low-strength hose) (0.5m) - ₦1,500 to ₦4,500

Mini-sized (medium-strength hose) (0.5m) - ₦3,000 to ₦7,000

Mini-sized (high-strength hose) (0.5m) - ₦5,000 to ₦7,000

Medium-sized (low-strength hose) (1m) - ₦3,500 to ₦7,500

Medium-sized (medium-strength hose) (1m) - ₦8,000 to ₦10,500

Medium-sized (high-strength hose) (1m) - ₦12,000 to ₦14,000

Big-sized (low-strength hose) (1m) - ₦6,000 to ₦7,000

Big-sized (medium-strength hose) (1m) - ₦9,000 to ₦12,000

Big-sized (high-strength hose) (1m) - ₦15,000 to ₦18,000
