    Default Cylinder ID

    I got these off E Bay and wondered if anyone would know anything about these or what they were used on.The seller knew nothing about them.They are of extremely high quality and it looks like they have regulators on them.Looks like military as they are heavy and of better quality than any I have seen before.
    Thanks for any info. What...You can't do this without pictures?

    Best guess based on the little plastic hoses ? and brass compression fittings?, I am thinking maybe they are pneumatic (air) operated cylinders?

    Larry, there was some hyd fluid in the lines when I extended them.I know some cylinders can use air or fluid.High pressure/low pressure, how can I test them?.Judging from the 1/2 in holes in the mounts they would seem to have some force to them.

    Pneumatic cylinders usually have a smaller rod as they have way less power. The lines do look like pneumatic. Can you get a close up pic of the cut end of the line? They do look like some nice hydraulic cylinders. Maybe for a low pressure application, that's why the brass fittings. Only way to test is to hook it up and turn on the power. Too bad you weren't closer, I have a nice test bench for hydraulics.

    Stephen (Bones1),

    Those are a really nice matched pair of cylinders. Regardless of what they were used for in the past, my question is - what are you planning on using them for? What is the bore & stroke? and the rod diameter? How about the size of the clevis mounting holes? Do the clevis ends have a swivel? Want to sell them to me for a small (very small) profit?

    Andy, I can come up with lots of fine spirits to taste test
