Can I use a double-acting cylinder as a single-acting cylinder?

Yes, you will need to add a vent to the top fitting or plumb the top hose back into the tank.

Are repair kits available for welded hydraulic cylinders?

Yes, we stock repair kits containing the necessary seals for most of the bore sizes for the welded cylinders.

What seals do I need for my cylinder?

If you do not have enough identification on the cylinder for an OEM seal kit, the best thing to do is bring the seals into a local hydraulic shop or send them to us to match them up.
