Summit Hydraulic Solutions designs and manufactures cylinders to suit new applications, or to replace existing cylinders.

Our extensive machine shop facilities allow for complete in-house fabrication, major overhaul, or repair and reseal servicing of all types of hydraulic cylinder.

By stocking a wide range of honed cylinder tubes, hard-chrome bars (including induction-hardened), and all styles of seals and bushings you will benefit from our ability to efficiently repair or replace any cylinder requirement.

The machine shop includes state-of-the-art dismantling and assembly equipment, as well as automatic cylinder honing to recover damaged bores – hone capacity 2” to 20” bore (50mm – 5000m) and 4 metre stroke length (up to 8 metres end-for-end).

Hydraulic cylinders come in a variety of sizes and designs, from very simple to complex ones with sophisticated features to suit special mobile and industrial applications.

Hydraulic cylinders are linear actuators – devices for converting hydraulic energy into mechanical energy.

  • Single-acting cylinders are pressurised at one end only. They rely on gravity on the load cause retraction otherwise they can be spring assisted.
  • The double-acting cylinder is the most common type in mobile and industrial applications. Hydraulic pressure is applied to either port, giving powered motion when extending or retracting.
