Repair or Replacement of Forklift Hydraulic Cylinders

Whether to repair or replace a damaged depends on the extent of the damage and the cost-effectiveness of the repair. Minor issues like leaks due to worn-out seals or gaskets can often be fixed by replacing these components. However, significant problems like a bent or cracked cylinder may necessitate a complete replacement, especially if the repair cost approaches or exceeds the price of a new cylinder.

When to Repair

Repair is usually the preferred option when the damage is minor and can be fixed without compromising the cylinder's performance. Issues such as minor leaks or seal wear can often be addressed through a repair. It is crucial, however, to ensure that the repairs are carried out by skilled technicians to avoid further damage.

When to Replace

Replacement becomes necessary when the cylinder damage is severe, such as a bent rod or a deep scratch on the cylinder bore. In such cases, repair may not be possible, or it might not restore the cylinder to its optimum functioning capacity. Additionally, if the repair cost is high, it might be more economical to replace the cylinder altogether.
