WHEN REPAIR

How Do You Know Your Caterpillar Cylinder Is Out of Order?

Contamination and rod damage are leading causes of Caterpillar cylinder failures. Some operators may miss early warning signs and not realize the cylinder is failing until unscheduled downtime is needed. This is common as efficiency losses come on slowly. 

Here are some red flags to be aware of when operating your Caterpillar hydraulic cylinders:

  • Contaminated oil
  • Unexplained leaks
  • Damaged seals or bent rods
  • Increased cycle times
  • Decreased speed and productivity

Why Work With Us

HOW WE REPAIR

Types of Caterpillar Hydraulic Cylinder Repairs We Handle

Before the point of total replacement is necessary, Caterpillar hydraulic cylinders can usually be repaired in three main ways. Whether or not the repair is possible depends on how much internal damage has been caused. Regardless of the issue, our team can handle all sorts of Caterpillar hydraulic cylinder repairs. 

We take on:

  • Reseals: This means installing new seals and wear rings  that are between the metal parts. Releasing typically involves a mixture of dynamic seals for the moving parts and static seals around the piston and rod. 
  • Repairs: If the warning signs are caught early, hydraulic cylinders can be restored to their original condition.
  • Rebuilds: Old or worn-down components are replaced and any reusable parts are salvaged accordingly. This is a cost-effective approach.
