WHAT DOES ASAE MEAN?

ASAE, or more recently renamed ASABE, stands for American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers. ASABE was developed in order to create standards for products in the agricultural market. By adhering to these standards, consumers can ensure they will get the same specifications of a product, no matter where they purchase it from.

ASAE is applied to hydraulic cylinders with the 8″ and 16″ stroke. Cylinders labeled 8″ ASAE will have a retracted length of 20.25″ and 16″ ASAE will have a retracted length of 31.5″. There are non-ASAE 8″ and 16″ cylinders on the market, but they will not be guaranteed to have the same retracted length as the ASAE model.

ASAE takes the guess work out of specifications and offers the consumer peace of mind they will be receiving an equal replacement when it comes to measurements. Please check out our inventory of ASAE cylinders available in multiple bore sizes!
