I would think that you have several hydraulic shops in the Atlanta area. Most can rebuild cylinders and valve spools. Check the price for a new one, with Bailey Sales . Good Luck, Rick

I have one local, but I like to support guys in the hobby. If I don't get any bites, on Tuesday I will take it into the shop

Know someone that has a lathe?  Chuck it up in a lathe and cut the weld out. Then you can look for seals. 

 

I had my brother take a small lift cylinder to work with him to rebuild. He works at Caterpillar himac and he rebuilds cylinders every day.

 

He said Normally anything that small is a throw away because the parts and labor cost more than the cylinder is worth. But they had all of the seals in stock and because my brother rebuilt it on his free time while waiting for a piece to come out of the CNC lathe it only cost me a couple bucks for seals and some beers for my bro.

 

He said said CAT gets around 20k $$$ to rebuild or make one of the big lift cylinders from a 30 ton CAT 730 rock truck.  They make everything on the cylinders in house from CNCing new pistons to custom length barrels.

I would even consider buying new but I can't find any suitable odd ball cylinders

If you were to post a picture showing the whole cylinder beside a tape it is possible some one has one around that could work. Don

If you have an equipment recycler around that looks like the reel lift cylinder from an old Heston swather.  Don

Would this work? Heck of alot cheaper than rebuilding yours.

You might be able to change the ends?

 

Here is a AMF 1414 cylinder Cheap. But it has some rust on the end of the rod. It doesn't look to bad and it might clean up.
