Well Frankin Tractor seems to have blown a bladder seal on the backhoe and I have no clue where to get parts or even what parts to order...This always seems to be an issue with the odd ball stuff I seem to acquire.

This machine is a Dig-it 188T(tractor is a Ingersoll 6018 with a dig it backhoe..any ideas out there?

Do a search for Dg it backhoe and see if any dealers, parts suppliers or even repair articles/videos come up. You could also try a local hydraulic shop. They should be able to sort it out for you.

X2 I would just pull the whole ram off and bring it to a hydraulic repair shop. Most of time they will put all new seals in it cheeper than the dealer will want just for the part to do it yourself.

You live near any coal mines in Alabama?  There are hydraulic rebuild shops around areas with coal mines.  Mines have lots of hydraulics.

 

I had one of the vendors we use frequently for hydraulic repairs do a couple cylinders for me.  They made their own seals, packing, ect, and rebuild it cheaper than I could buy the OEM parts for.  I did NOT receive a discount as that is against our "gift and favor policy"(rightly so)  I paid the price anyone off the street would of paid.

If you find an online retailer of hydraulic cylinder seals and give them some accurate dimensions they will likely be able to get you whatever you need.

  David AutoZone loans tools, If you can get a spanner from them spin the cap off. You can then get your dims. Here Agri supply has a lot of seals and packings. Of course you do know on line.   Freddie       good luck

They're a few hydraulic repair and machine shops down there.Check the Online Yellow Pages.Here's a link.

http://www.yellowpag...quipment-repair

 

If you was a bit closer I would give it to one of my brothers to take into work.They both work at Harrisburg CAT Hymac division.They can get parts but CAT will charge ya $5,000-$250,000+  for machine work. :rolling: Those little cylinders are what they call "Throw away" because the machine work costs more than the cylinder is worth.

Any quarries or sand pits near you? You could also check with local construction companies or municipalities, they might know of a shop around where your at.
