I have a leaking lift cylinder so I have to replace before im ready to use. I am going to be replacing the hydraulic lines on both cylinders so does anyone have the measurements of the four needed lines with fitting sizes? Also does anyone have a cylinder they are willing to part with? If so please let me know...

There may be a manual in the Manuals section, but I doubt they have hose specs. Hopefully someone can help, but did you try your JD dealer? They may still have them available.

The parts diagrams do not list the length of the lines. Unless you can find someone with the exact hitch you may have to estimate the length and get them made. Deere may still be able to supply them but the cost will likely be higher. If you check jdparts.com you can find out what fittings are needed to route the hoses properly. You may be able to find a used cylinder on ebay or at an online hydraulics shop. The problem is that the cylinders are very short for the stroke they have. It is difficult to find anything that will work unless it is custom made.

Take the line to your local hydraulic shop and they will be able fab them up for you.

Just measured mine, they are all 18" +- .25" Hope it helps. Tractor Supply can make them. Take a cylinder with you to get the correct connection.

As suggested, Tractor Supply can make the lines or if you have a local hydraulic shop they can make the lines for you as well. It would definitely be worth it to take the cylinder to a hydraulic shop also to have it rebuilt. I don't know how much new ones or used ones go for so maybe compare those prices first.

Your cylinders are non rebuildable, but I have chucked them up in a lathe and cut off the solid end. Rebuilt the cylinder and welded them back together. You might want to look into that as an option.
