Hydraulic Fault Finding

If your hydraulic system is sticking or working inefficiently, The Cylinder Service Centre will work through our systemtatic fault finding process to establish the cause of the failure and define the most cost effective solution to repair the vehicle and ensure long term reliability.  

Hydraulic Cylinders Removed, Repaired & Re-fitted

Once a root cause of hydraulic cylinder failure has been established and a proposed repair plan agreed, we will remove the suspect cylinder and perform a full inspection to confirm the diagnosis, or otherwise. This is where our specialised hydraulic stripping rig comes in very handy, allowing repairs to hydraulic cylinders that would otherwise be regarded as scrap.

If the diagnosis is correct, then we will repair the hydrualic cylinder as agreed. If, on the other hand, an unforseen issue is identified, then the customer is informed and a plan of action agreed in line with the repair need and any budgetary constraints the customer may have.
