Been around the world looking for hydraulic cylinder seals. The one hydraulic shop in E-town where I had to go anyway....nobody there, and nobody answers the cell number either....for 2 days. Lost my business. The Parker store was NO help at all, saying they'd have to send my parts off to be matched for seals. No thank you, I don't want you losing my parts. Go to 2 tractor dealers, but no dice. So end up coming towards home & decided to go past home, about another 8 miles to an obscure hydraulic shop down in a deep hollow that I swear you can hear dueling banjo's whenever you drive down there. BUT, this out of the way small hydraulic shop had what I needed. He's got my business! I have been there one other time, and then also, he had what I needed when nobody else did. $15 and change for all needed for both cylinders. I wrote the check for an even $20. So tomorrow I can get the front end loader going again. I wanted to be able to mainly due to the weather being horrible and shop time would be a plenty. Freezing rain now & may get worse. I knew if I didn't get down to the hydraulic shop tonight, tomorrow may be out of the question.
Now to get the silage fed, and not looking forward with the freezing rain coming down.
