I just couldn't let this stuff get thrown in the dumpster . 2 hydraulic cylinders, 2 sector valves , a seal kit for an unknown cylinder and a small fairless roller.

Couple hundred bucks worth of stuff. Great save. But a fella may never use it, but you never know.

lol my kitchen table and 6 chairs came out of a Sears dumpster.

 

Wood top with 4 glass panel inserts. Only thing wrong with it was 2 of the metal chair stringers was missing. Made 2 out of a hunk of 1/2 copper and a piece of all thread and 4 nyloc nuts. and a little white paint to match the other 4.

That was a great score, Al! I recently dug a Drill Doctor out of a dumpster.

Kenny I had saved some small cylinders like that were used and one came in handy when I broke the piston on the angle cylinder plowing snow with the PK ., the piston matched so it was an easy repair , I wish those selector valves were 6 ports instead of just 3 ( one in and two out ) then I could a 6 port to make a hydraulic top link using the single spool valve for the 3 pt  to control both depending on when position the selector valve was in . Like my mom used to say " beggars can't be choosy "  lol

How do the rams loo on those cylinders.  Look good from the outside but if the rams are rusted/pitted the seals won't hold.  Other than that looks like worth bringing home.

If you desire to part with those cylinders, I might be willing to buy them!
