    Has anyone come up with an aftermarket hydraulic cylinder that you can use on a 9000H loader that would be more reasonable than $170.00 from MEC? neo

    If you find the supplier you should be able to get it for less.

    They must purchase that part. I would check with A-C Supply.

    Check with any fluid power distributor in your area. You'll need to determine the bore and stroke of the cylinder as well as the distance from the front face of the cylinder to the end of the piston rod. The rod thread diameter and length of threads must determined in addition to the operating pressure.

    I'm guessing but Clippard, Bimba, or Parker may have a cylinder that will do the job. These mini-cylinders are rated for air applications, but it takes about 5,000 PSI oil to fail them. (Not a recommendation, just a first hand observation in the lab)

    Take a good look at your cylinder..some of them were able to be rebuilt. I had one done at a local hydralic supply shop. At least they can possibly help you find a suitable replacement.

    Direct from Mec......When I had my 9000 rebuilt I was told there is a 5 year warranty on the cylinder. I got mine replace free, but they don't volunteer that information, you have to ask.

    Try MSC. They list all kinds of cylinders - they also show who the manufacturer is, so it can be a starting point for your search.

    Another source is McMaster-Carr, but they tend to be a bit more pricey.

    I agree that a local hydraulics shop might be of help too. My local shop has been fantastic in troubleshooting all sorts of issues.

    Good luck
