It's like a poly rubber hybrid. It's rated to 300 PSI. Specs are different on the box than on those sites

 

Sorry man but that's all that's available online. When yours doesn't appear to exist you have to base value on what does exist.

 

Tekton's made in the USA hybrid 300 PSI air hose sells for $26 on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/TEKTON-46137-8-Inch-50-Foot-Restrictors/dp/B00Z1K6I0K/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1458087012

 

Unless you want to go by some unknown pawn shop: http://syracuse.craigslist.org/tld/5443965081.html

Oh I know. I was just pointing out that it's different.

OK, I see what you're saying. I honestly think they're high for their version and spot on for your version....that's not to say that you can't get more on Craigslist. I mean how many people are going to know that Tekton has made in the USA air hoses? Name recognition trumps specs for most people. Dewalt fan boys might eat those up at $40, who knows.

 

What's your plan with it/them? Keeping it or flipping it/them?

We opened up a hose yesterday to see how it unwinds and to test its "memory" or the lack thereof. And I have to say that I am very impressed. It's a super light hose but not super cheap. There is virtually no memory in the hose and it winds up nicely. I prefer smaller loops and my dad likes larger loops. We were able to easily take the same hose into our own preferred loop size and maintain a clean bundle.

The female end is a quick connect meaning the ends push together without having to pull the sleeve back. The sleeve stays retracted when disconnected and when you go to connect it, it then releases forward to lock it in.

Overall, I can not believe these didn't workout for DeWalt.

This is really baffling me.....

The model number of the hoses i purchased are not found ANYWHERE. I've scoured DeWalt's website and it's not listed on their "Discontinued Products" page either.

All the DeWalt hoses I have found are Polyurethane and do not come with fittings. This one is a hybrid and COMES with male and female ends. I noticed the cases are labeled XXX of 250.

I'm beginning to think these are new hoses that haven't been fully released yet.
