Hyd cyl

I have an 82s mower which I use with a WD tractor.I just got a hold of an original operators manual for this mower and I see that its intended to have a hydraulic cylinder attatched to it for raising. The manual has no section dealing with parts so my question is does anyone know the dimensions of the cylinder? What is the body length, stroke and shaft size?

Thanks for reply's, I was told about swinging the lift cylinder over but I dont think that will work. The pic in my manual is like the one from Brian and dosent at all resemble the lift cylinders at the back. I have been using a large turn buckle here but that is not likely allowing the mower to float properly. Thanks again, Peter

I remember when we had the mower on a 45 we had trouble with the cap screws that held the mounting bracket to the tractor frame,made the holes bigger and deeper and used grade 8 bolts.

Bob, they did have a high pressure system,and if you used a large diameter cylinder they were slow,high pressure low flow,I think thats why most of the early AC cylinders were 2-2.5",but I could be wrong.

The 82s is the side mount version, right? Is it possible that it uses the lift arm cylnder on the right side of the tractor, just swung forward. The mounted cultivator was raised with the lift arm cylinder on one side swung forward and connected to the cultivator.

The cylinder mounts directly on the mower, perpendicular to the frame rails on the tractor. The 82 series was made this way so that it could be mounted on other makes and models other than those with the snap coupler lift arms (80 series).

Had one on a WD-45 used a 2or 2.5x8" single or double acting cylinder. If you use the double remove one hose and put a breather in the hole. Very good mower by the way.

Mine has what looks like a 4x8 double acting. The cylinder has to lift on the retracting stroke, so most one way cylinders won't work. This also decreases the piston area (a cylinder will have less force on the retracting stroke than it does on the extending stroke due to the dia. of the rod), so you have to keep this in mind, too.

I just posted a picture of the ram as mounted on an 82S mower. Click on "Parts & Pieces" under the Gallery at the left. A picture is sometimes worth a thousand words. LOL Brian G.

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Hay: The Early Years (Part 2) - by Pat Browning. The summer of 1950 was the start of a new era in farming for our family. I was thirteen, and Kathy (my oldest sister) was seven. At this age, I believed tractor farming was the only way, hot stuff -- and given a chance I probably would have used the tractor, Dad's first, a 1936 Model "A" John Deere, to go bring in the cows! And I think Dad was ready for some automation too. And so it was that we acquired a good, used J. I. Case, wire tie hay baler. In addition to a person to drive th ... [Read Article]
