WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN TIE-ROD CYLINDERS AND WELDED CYLINDERS?

Welded cylinders are proving to be superior to tie-rod cylinders. With a welded cylinder the end caps are welded to the case, as opposed to being secured by a tie-rod. Another factor that causes welded cylinders to be more desirable is they are not susceptible to stretching under high pressure and long strokes, like the tie-rod counterpart is. Welded cylinders also do not require the routine maintenance that tie-rods do.

Tie-rod cylinder end-caps are larger than the diameter of the case. Therefore, with a welded cylinder you are able to get a larger bore and more lift capacity to fit in the same space as a tie-rod cylinder with a smaller bore and capacity. The only advantage of tie-rod cylinders, especially in agricultural applications, is its cheaper cost.
Current performance demands make welded cylinders the better choice when compared to tie-rod. Applications from vehicle lifts, trailers, dump trucks and snowplows to heavy construction machinery and material handling equipment all benefit from the superior strength of a welded cylinder
