wanted hyd. cylinder

Recommended Posts

Just go to a tractor supply or farm supply place and get a prince tie rod cylinder, remove the bolts, and cut it to length in a bandsaw, chamfer the cut edges, use shorter bolts and cut the ram to length. Off the shelf is going to be cheaper than custom built.

irnsrgn, Is right on the cylinder. I'd try to buy new what I'm looking for, there's less hassle. If you need it a certain length do like irnsrgn says shorten longer cylinder.

Question what are you using cylinder for? If you are building a hydraulic press. Do the math for an 8" diameter cylinder using 2500 psi power unit. It figures out to be almost 63 tons. That's big press.
