    Does anybody know if the MEC hydraulic cylinder, part # 8861 is readily available through hydraulic supply houses at a price that would be cheaper than the $208 price MEC asks. Seems to me that MEC probably sources them from some wholesaler. Thanks, gyrine

    Those cyclinders can be refurbished for about 1/3 of that price. I have had 2 done with good success so far. Omaha
