We specialize in rebuilding cylinders for the earthmoving, industrial, recycling, refuse/garbage, material handling, forklift, and manufacturing industries. These cylinders include Caterpillar, Komatsu, John Deere, Nissan, as well as large tie-rod cylinders commonly used in manufacturing.
Whether your cylinder is at your shop or on the job site, we will pick up and deliver any size cylinder for a fast turnaround. For any out of state repair needs, Nationwide LTL Trucking is also available.
All cylinder components are inspected, measured, and recorded on our detailed inspection sheet. By verifying the clearances on all seal and wear surfaces, we can eliminate potential problems and assure maximum seal life and cylinder performance.
Our heavy-duty torque bench has the capacity to remove piston nuts and glands up to 50,000 ft. lbs. During re-assembly nuts and glands are torqued to the proper specifications.
All cylinders receive a light hone during our standard re-seal process. This allows a cylinder to perform at optimum levels and live longer without leaks. Our automatic honing machine can correct any irregularities or heavy scoring to renew barrel life.
When cylinder barrels are not corrected through the honing process, new tubes are custom made using OEM specifications.
Manufactured rods and barrels are auto-welded, creating the most consistent bond/weld possible.
Cylinders are assembled using OEM quality parts. During pressure testing, cylinders are stroked multiple times. Cylinders are then pressurized to operating pressure on both sides of the piston to test against internal and external leakage.
Remke’s Garage has unique experience in rebuilding large bore hydraulic cylinders. The ability to do work on a 24" bore tube or an 18.000" chrome rod takes heavy-duty large capacity machinery and experienced machinists. Technical skills are required to do final assembly on large cylinders.
Cylinder rods are checked for straightness during the inspection process. Rods that pass inspection are polished to eliminate minor imperfections and renew chrome finish.
On-site manufacturing using our inventory of metric and standard rod stock provides quick turnarounds. We believe in only using the highest quality 100,000 tensile strength or induction hardened chrome rod stock to maximize cylinder performance.
We are distributors of MUNCIE cylinders for dump trucks and dump truck trailers. Call today to learn more about the selection of cylinders available through Remke’s Garage.
The pin-pin mount cylinder is engineered to reduce oil consumption and increase dumping speed. As one of the lightest cylinders available, the pin-pin cylinder is a great addition to dump trucks.
Pin-pin cylinders have increased rigidity due to tight machining tolerances. They feature solid stop contact faces and create a larger overlap between stages. These improvements help prevent accidents due to vehicle roll-over, increasing dumping safety.
The trunnion mount cylinders increase dump body capacity by reducing or eliminating the dog house. They are low maintenance with tight machining tolerances for increased rigidity. Trunnion mount cylinders also have solid stop contact faces* and larger overlap between stages.
MUNCIE cylinders are one of the most stable and strongest cylinders on the market.
We stand behind our work and all cylinders rebuilt are serial numbered and recorded in-service history.
