Hello Unimogers
I intend to copy the MB ram for size and maybe build them only 1 way with a safety rope to bring it back down
so still the 1860 mm long .
Thank you for the interest and i am already counting to see if we can make a production run .
Cheers
Urs

No worries Urs. Pump specs are as follows

Pumps can be had in either single or double acting and work in a vertical or horizontal mounted position

12cm/3 @380Bar
25cm/3 @350Bar
45cm/3 @280Bar

I have two factory cab tilt setups if you need dimensions photos etc.

Merry Xmas

Cheers
Ben

I would be too scared to try a hilift jack for lifting the cab.

I did a post a couple of years back on making a screw jack type of cab lift, which was pretty easy to knock up, works well, and safe from the point of view that the screw mechanism can't fail like a hydraulic seal giving way. It uses the mog jacking points.

The higher up you jack the cab, the less load on the jack too. I initially made a short (first stage lift) and long one (second stage), but now have an intermediate one which is fine for most times, and is field friendly...esp when using the battery drill.
