Some pix of my stabilizer piston after being tented over with brand new quality tarp this winter. Plenty of ventilation and no direct rain/snow could get on it or the other side. One side rusted, other did not.
I guess that FEL nitride coated piston business is too good to use on BH pistons also? Absolutely should not happen to any hydraulic piston in this price range! Harbor Freight maybe, John Deere never! I think they have some foreign outsourcing quality control problems.
