    Cylinder for 12' case cultivator

    I'm looking at purchasing this cultivator, if it's in good shape. It does not come with a cylinder do I need to figure out how much that and the lines will cost. But, I'm not sure how to figure out what cylinder I need. How do I figure this out?

    Most of these older implements use 2x8, 10, or 12 “tie rod” cylinders that can be bought for under $100, plus maybe $50 for two hoses and couplers.

    Ok. They said I could take it for $800. But it still needs to be looked at. I'm going to be needing it here shortly. I'm a little late to the party. Haha.

    Standard hydraulic transport cylinders used on field cultivators are 4" x 8". The price with vary by manufacturer.

    As for the hose lengths:
    1st hose, measure from the farthest cylinder attaching eye, to the tip of the hitch. Then add 4'.
    2nd hose, subtract 8" from the total length of the above measurement.

    I would think you would be able to find a cylinder at Grainger or possibly Surplus Center.com. Good luck with the purchase.

    The cylinder we had for that type application was enormous,, like 4 inch bore.

    It was large, not for the power, but, rather for the volume, it took longer to fill.
    The large volume allowed you to have fine control over positioning,,
    seldom did you move the cylinder to the end of the travel.

    Also, larger tractors have high volume hydraulic flows,,
    put a 2" bore cylinder on the tractor, the rod will fly line a missile, and may break something,,,

    We used 4" cylinders on most of the equipment. The length might vary but all were at least 8" stroke which usually worked well on disks, plows etc. A couple of places needed a longer stroke but nothing over a 4 x 12 that I can recall except for a log splitter.

    As previously stated normal cyl stroke length for farm implements is 8''. I think a 2'' dia is too small,a 3'' will lift the cultivator but a 4'' will be better. Lower tractor hyd pressures will require larger diameter cylinder to raise this plow successfully.

    Stopped at TSC today and a 3.5x8 is $150 and a 4x8 is $180. I also looked at the implement and it was in good shape. The woman asked what I thought and I told her what a cylinder cost and I got it for $700. Just have to get the cylinder and figure out what size ends their tractor takes. My 5200 is set for 1/2" pioneer. They have a small Ford and some other tractor. Hopefully I can just get them to lift the cylinder so I can block it up and pull it home with my truck.
