I would certainly agree with maintenance on rod type cylinders I would think they would be more costly to make. I think most of new construction equipment use welded cylinders. All the cylinders on my 1957 case 20 are tie rod type and have been rebuilt. I thought it had something to do with hydraulic pressure 1500 lb/in is hydraulic operating pressure on our 320.Someone told me newer backhoes operate with 3000lb/sq in in their hydraulic systems

I have turned my 480E up to 3000 psi. Cold. With a new pump. It is quick. I had a tie rod cylinder on my thumb. It couldn't take it. Ordered a welded cyl from Northern. It can.

3000psi is a lot of pressure but I imagine your hoe bucket has a lot of power when digging. The 455 ford TLB I used briefly had a lot of power when digging with the bucket and would break roots when removing stumps. I watched my fried use his 455 to dig out stumps--He put a 12 inch bucket on. It may have had 3000 psi My case 320 does very well when digging ditches but doesn't have the power at the bucket to break roots. I am sure I would bend the ram for the bucket if I tried to break roots. I remove the dirt around large roots with the hoe then cut them off with my chainsaw. Put a chain on the roots and pull them out with out TD6 dozer. Always a pleasure to talk with You and others on the forum. Members willingness to share information is greatly appreciated by me.
Happy New Year, Chris
