    Does it keep breaking at the cylinder?

    from the picks Looks to me like the hoses are too short and when the plow dips it pulls on the hoses

    This is typically why angle cylinder hoses fail on a SX. Drive plow over the edge of drop off so plow can drop full length of lift cylinder and check the slack on the hoses.

    The dealer has provided me with new hoses that are 6 inches longer than factory spec of 36 inches. I went to a hydraulic shop and tried 36 inch hose that is arctic grade. They told me most of the stock hoses break in the cold Labrador Weather. They see it all the time. So far so good with the new hoses. No breakage or leaks so far. Dealer also provided me with a gallon of SX hydraulic fluid and credited me with the 6 hoses I have already ruined this season. I agree with the fact those 36 inch hoses are way to short for the angling rams.
