This SAE Standard provides general, dimensional and performance specifications for the most common hoses used in
hydraulic systems on mobile and stationary equipment.
The general specifications contained in Sections 1 through 12 are applicable to all hydraulic hoses and supplement the
detailed specifications for the 100R-series hoses contained in the later sections of this document. (See Tables 1A
This document shall be utilized as a procurement document only to the extent as agreed upon by the manufacturer and
The maximum working pressure of a hose assembly comprising SAE J517 hose and hose connectors per SAE J516,
SAE J518, SAE J1453, etc., shall not exceed the lower of the respective SAE maximum working pressure values.
When using SAE J517 hose for marine applications, see SAE J1475, SAE J1942 and SAE J1942-1.
The SAE J517 100R9, 100R10 and 100R11 hoses are discontinued due to lack of demand. For DOD orders see
The SAE J517 100R1A, 100R2A, 100R2B and 100R 2BT are discontinued due to lack of demand. For DOD orders
replace 100R1A with 100R1AT, replace 100R2A, 100R2B and 100R2BT with 100R2AT.
The SAE J517 100R2AT maximum working pressures will be replaced by the type S maximum working pressures
beginning with the year 2009, eliminating the need to label 100R2 as type S.
The SAE J517 100R16 maximum working pressures will be replaced by the type S maximum working pressures with the
year 2009, eliminating the need to label 100R16 as type S.
Rationale:Revise 100R6 to allow additional manufacturing processes by removing the braid requirement and revise the inside
dimensional min and max so that the product may be manufactured using a non mandrel process. This revision will allow
present production hose to meet the revised standard.
