Recently manufactured pair of Hydraulic Cylinders

These cylinders have dual ports in each end to allow them to replace handed cylinders on rigid pipes.  This allows the end user to only require one as a spare for two working cylinders.  Our customer supplied drawings specified by the end user to be a direct copy to existing cylinders but with the added benefit of dual ports at each end.
