Can anyone tell me the stroke length of the hydraulic lift cylinder for an open-sided LGT165?

I know the bore is 2", but can't find any other specifications.

I believe that this is the same cylinder used to angle the 48" trip blade, is that correct?

Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks

I believe it to be 4". And they did use that as the angle cylinder for the blade. Fixing to make some changes to the blade? I know I have seen a sheet on this option, just can't find it at the moment.

KennyP:

Once again, you come up with an answer, thanks so much. Certainly appreciate all your help.

Yeah, gonna make some changes in how the blade attaches and lifts, working on the design now.

Figured as long as I make those changes, might as well add hydraulic angle option as well.

Need to make a real snow mover, as we have 15" of snow here in upstate New York,

and I'm bettin' we get more before the end of winter

Again, thanks for the info

See if this helps on the angle:

This is on page 106 of the parts manual.

Yes that sure helps. Where can I find the specs for this cylinder?

It seems that Messicks part look-up isn't working today.

Thanks again
