curtis b :

None of the tele-handlers have to remove the cylinders to install new hoses. Genie, Skytrack, Terex, and JCB all will have hoses that can be changed . Use a wire or rope attached to the hoses on removal to aid in pulling them back into position. Most will be in a plastic track and can be removed as a set. I don't have the JCB service manual to show it. Sorry.
