24 August, 2022

By Rob Woodley, managing director, Derek Lane & Co


Knowing if your hydraulic cylinder needs to be repaired or not is the first step towards ensuring your equipment can continue to function properly. A damaged hydraulic cylinder can lead to a vast array of problems in the workplace, heavily impacting on the efficiency of your operations and risking safety implications. Here are some telltale signs that your hydraulic cylinders need repairing: 

Compromised cylinder mountings

Leaking hydraulic fluid

Cracked piston, barrel or other components

Hydraulic cylinders may show these signs of damage gradually worsening over a period of time, or they may be subjected to sudden failure. Whether it’s a leak, crack, rusting or complete failure, you need a cylinder specialist that is able to deliver a fast turnaround, so you are able to get your cylinder operating efficiently again within a short timeframe.

Specialised hydraulic cylinder rebuilds

The service provider should possess deep knowledge of all cylinder makes and models used across a wide range of industries including marine, defence, construction and quarrying. Your provider of choice should also be able to offer fullservice rebuilds and repairs of specialised hydraulic cylinders with fast and efficient turnaround times.

Moreover, the company’s technical staff should be able to troubleshoot any cylinder faults and provide a full scope rebuild or repair solution. The services on offer by the company should be tailored to customers’ specific requirements, and be willing to recommend the most suitable, cost-effective solution for the tasks at hand – whether that involves a repair, rebuild or replacement.

At Derek Lane & Co’s repair centre in Newton Abbot, Devon, for example, we offer state of the art hydraulic cylinders and a repairs service to businesses in the surrounding areas including Cornwall & Somerset, with services extended nationwide if required.
