I'm trying to replace my damaged beyond repair side to side actuator on my schmidt 3.4 Does anyone know who makes the cylinder or have one for sale. I have a large gouge on the cylinder that damaged part of my inner hosing.
Why not just call Schmidt in NA.. which is actually Wausau everest
Last time I checked they were about 1200 new. Another option would be to see if a hydrolic repair place can fix it. I know mine would tig the gouge and then grind it smooth on his lath - grinder... other then a change in color from the stainless rod he uses to fill in the gouge you can't tell... And a seal kit your good as new..
I have the cylinder at a machine shop right now getting an estimate. The proper i had was whoever tried to dismantle the cylinder earlier look it apart without smoothing the gouge. This damage the inner sleeve in the main housing, which is harder to repair. I did call Schmidt, and $1200 for a cylinder is very steep. I have purchased much large more complex cylinders in the past for way less then that. I was just trying to find an equal replacement that doesn't cost half the price of what the plow is worth.
