Needed a rebuild kit for one of my loader's hydraulic cylinders, so off I went into internet land.

But after remembering what NJ Ken went thru I decided new was better than rebuilding them. :D

Talk about my lucky day, found these from Baileys brand new and marked down to 49.97 each, along with a few other things, like a filled 3000 psi gauge and hour meter. They have a lot of good stuff,  plus no mark-up on shipping :thumbs: hydraulic_cylinders_lt.jpg

Most of my troubles were self empossed John. But good deal on the new ones.
Now that I have a clue, I'd rebuild them again. Less then 10 bucks each and simple once it's figured out.

I hear you Ken, mine were a little iffy due to a few rust score's so I said, "for that price why chance it"  :thumbs: 

P.S. I asked about rebuild kits on the new ones, 12 bucks , done.

When you are on Bailey's site check their clearances too. 10 years ago I bought a box of miscellaneous bushings and bearings for only a few dollars. They have been very handy. Baileys also has tractor seats and transaxles. Good Luck, Rick

There was a guy at the other joint who rebuilt welded cylinders. Said the same thing. It's easy with a few attempts.

I assume you cut them with a pipe cutter then re weld them ?

Sorry John, for the thread hi jack. But I'm sure your ok with it. If not O well. : )

Great deal! I now have the site bookmarked.

 

After browsing for a few minutes, I found a bearing that cost $646!

I cut down the body & rod of hay roller cylinders for my FEL build, and got it right the 1st time!   Likely just lucky!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

 

Those are EXACTLY what I need. :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:

 

I bought a Bolens 1886 with a home made FEL on it, and the guy that built it used single action lift cylinders on it :wallbanging:  :wallbanging:  :wallbanging:

 

I just ordered a pair so I can have a proper FEL.

They will make your FEL more enjoyable to use for sure :thumbs:

Oh, I figured that out immediately after I took it off the trailer.  My side yard was totally saturated, and the tractor had turfs with no weight of any sort on the back.

 

I got it off the trailer, went to move it a bit, and it just sat there on top of the saturated sod and spun.  My first thought was just to 'walk it out' using the bucket, but...with no down pressure that wasn't happening :wallbanging:

Update:

Fedex was here today and dropped the cylinders off along with a *few other things, quick shipping, and everything was just as ad states, look like a real nice product and packed well too.

 

* Hour meter and a 200psi and 3000psi liquid filled gauges
