What are Common Issues with Excavator Stick Cylinders?
Excavator stick cylinders are a vital component of any excavator and can experience a range of issues over time. Common issues that can arise with excavator stick cylinders include:
- Leaking Cylinders
- Weak Cylinder Seals
- Rusty Cylinder Pistons
- Broken Cylinder Hoses
- Sticking Cylinder Valves
- Damaged Cylinder Rods
How to Resolve Common Issues with Excavator Stick Cylinders
When it comes to resolving issues with excavator stick cylinders, it is important that you follow the correct steps and take the necessary precautions. Here are some tips for resolving common issues with excavator stick cylinders:
1. Check for Leaks
The first step in resolving any issues with excavator stick cylinders is to check for leaks. Leaks can occur due to weak cylinder seals, broken cylinder hoses, or damage to the cylinder rod. To check for leaks, you should inspect the cylinder for any signs of fluid leakage. If you find a leak, you should replace the cylinder seal or hose.
2. Inspect the Cylinder Piston
The next step in resolving issues with excavator stick cylinders is to inspect the cylinder piston. If the cylinder piston is rusty or corroded, it should be replaced. You should also check for any signs of wear or damage to the cylinder rod. If the cylinder rod is damaged, it should also be replaced.
3. Clean and Lubricate the Cylinder Valves
If the cylinder valves are sticking or not operating properly, you should clean and lubricate them. To clean the cylinder valves, you should use a solvent-free cleaner, and then lubricate them with a high-quality lubricant. This will help to ensure that the cylinder valves are operating correctly and prevent them from sticking.
4. Test the Cylinder After Repairs
Once you have completed the necessary repairs, you should always test the cylinder to ensure that it is functioning correctly. You should test the cylinder at various speeds and pressure settings to ensure that it is working properly. If the cylinder is not functioning correctly, you should contact the technical department of WLY Transmission for further assistance.
