    Too many other random attachments to list (or to own, per my wife) and a really bad tool addiction. But at least I haven't bought a dump truck or bulldozer. Yet.

    Honestly, I have no idea. All I do know is that I don't even have it yet, but I need to repair it by Tuesday.

    Several, all used and abused.

    I don't think I'd trust any of it for a rebuild, but just replace it and hope there's not cracks or integrity issues with the frame or pins.

    Just guessing here, but for that to happen, I think there must have been another force pushing on it, or they hit something with the stick extended. Maybe playing battering ram?

    looking at the pic it looks like there might be a "bite" in the outer shell of the cylinder, (just above the gland nut on the end of the cylinder), perhaps someone was using the cylinder as a lifting point while trying to extend the ram??? that is the only thing I can think of just from looking @ the picture.

    A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

    I've seen one bend like that before when the operator buried the man lift in a mud hole and tried to use the basket to push himself out. The results looked identical to the pic posted.

    The original point and click interface was a Colt.

    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you... the AMERICAN SOLDIER and JESUS CHRIST. One died for your freedom; the other for your soul.

    Joe, actually, you hit the nail on the head. I just spoke with the customer and that's exactly what happened. You get a gold star!

    Aaron, thanks for pointing that out. I'll have to ask about it. They are bringing in the cylinder today and they need it yesterday. I am pricing a new cylinder as opposed to the parts. I don't like to take any kind of chances with any kind of man-up equipment.

    That has got to be an expensive mistake! (Lost time, broke parts, etc etc not to mention the years of ribbing the poor sap that did it is going to take!)
