Truck and Trailer Hoist Cylinders
When you need truck and trailer hoist cylinders that will handle your demands, you need to turn to the professionals with Gorilla Spares. We’ve provided replacement parts for companies in a wide range of industries, and customers come back to us time after time because they know they’ll always get great value. You can rest assured that every part we sell is of the highest quality, and will always perform when you need it most.
Why Choose Gorilla Spares?
You may have dealt with suppliers who tried to steer you toward a certain brand. They probably had some sort of agreement with the manufacturer that gave them an incentive to push specific products. Maybe those products were reliable, maybe they weren’t. But at Gorilla Spares, you’ll never have to worry about those types of high-pressure tactics.
The reason is that we don’t manufacture the parts we sell, nor are we part of any kinds of distribution agreements. What we are is a marketplace that connects makers of aftermarket parts with the customers they seek. These companies, which we call our vendor partners, make hydraulic and electronic components that are 100 percent interchangeable with parts made by the biggest names in manufacturing. They’re just as durable and reliable as those OEM components, but they’re a lot less expensive.
But we don’t allow just anyone to partner with us. Every vendor you see on our site has proven to be committed to quality and customer service – just like us. Not only do we perform exhaustive research on all prospective partners, we also audit them and interview them. If you see their parts on their site, it’s because we know the companies that make them are truly trustworthy.
Signs You May Need New Cylinders
If you’re observant, you can tell when a cylinder needs to be replaced. Be on the lookout for the indications of a potential failure, and get in touch with Gorilla Spares as soon as you can.
- High temperatures – Check the temperature of your cylinders on a regular basis. If they’re too hot, that can mean your system isn’t operating as efficiently as it should. Excessive heat can cause the oil to degrade faster and damage seals, putting your equipment at risk for a breakdown.
- Strange noises – You should never hear any sort of loud banging noise coming from your cylinders. If you do, that probably means oil isn’t circulating properly. It could also mean the seals are about to burn up. Shut down the system immediately and get in touch with us for a replacement.
- Broken bearings – If you’re putting too much stress on your cylinders, making them handle loads that are more than they can take, their eye bearings may break as a result. We can provide you with a cylinder built specifically for the types of loads you demand.
- Fluid contamination – This might be the most common cause of a failed cylinder. If contaminants get into your hydraulic fluid, that can damage the interior of a cylinder and also destroy seals.
