technically it shouldnt matter, but I will put em there from the looks of my set up. Fluid doesnt compress, no matter if it runs 5 inches or 5 miles. In a air free system it wont matter, but in some cases it may come into play.

hydraulic fluid is compressible 1/10th of 1 percent :biggrin:

You will get more line flex than fluid compressing....but you are correct, it will compress a negligable amount.
on a big ass press, lets say a 20" ram at 2500 PSI, theres actually a gallon or so of compressed oil, they have decompression valves in the circuits to bleed it off before the directional valve shifts. Oil is fun :biggrin:

I dont think youll actually see a gallon of oil. The accumulators should generally be located as close to the cylinder as possible. For something as simple as the function they serve for what youre using them for, its not that important.
