    I went to the fisher dealer today and picked up a bunch of parts...300$ worth. I bought 4 hoses for the angle rams and when I got home, I realized they won't fit. Is there an adapter to make them work? Or do I return them for a different type? I don't know what was on there from factory as I am the 2nd or third owner of the plow. It's a MM2 ezv.
    Picture attached. Old and new hose..

    You can get a nipple to screw into that new hose to make it a male connection or you can return those hoses and take the old ones to a hose shop and have a set made. It's probably cheaper to have them made versus paying dealer prices.

    Well, I already bought these from the dealer, maybe I can just swap them even stevens...

    I take them back since they are not right ones or buy a nipple

    If you have a farm store most time buy from there half the price and they are heavier made

    Being a MM2 the hoses your dealer sent you home with should have been correct (JIC ends) apparently someone has changed something on the pump/cylinders OR it's actually an MM1 which would explain the NPTF ends,either way take them back,ask for parts #4424,they should be at least half the price of the hoses they sold you so you should get some coin back

    Well, I did get the correct hoses but, I did not get any money back?? I did notice they felt a bit cheaper though...they were a rubber hose vs. the other hoses had a textured wrap on them. I think someone changed the fittings on the rams because there are adapters on the fittings on the pump. If I took them off, the jic would've threaded right on. Ohh well. The plows done except for an edge...

    Sorry man,hoses should have been about $10 cheaper a piece,as long as they are rubber and not cheap thermoplastic you'll be fine.Feel free to PM about edges,could probably hook you up.
