In the UK, the Quattro Owners Club has found a hydraulic hose manufacturer who 
will make equivalents to the urq hoses for half the price.  Apparently, this 
type of hose is VERY frequently used in industrial hydraulic machinery and 
almost all implementations are custom.  Try a service organisation that 
maintains excavators, bulldozers, etc.
