"Like other reviewers, my cylinder did arrive banged up rolling around in the back of the UPS truck. The cylinder works fine other than ALOT of aeration of the fluid. I think the small port is not helping the issue. (See pic attached). I have a new pump, new lines, new large reservoir, and tons of entrained air. Within 30 seconds of starting the engine. Yes, this is not the cylinder. See the attached and take it for what it's worth. I think it definitely slows the cylinder extend/retract time down."

"I purchased one of these cylinders about a year ago for my tractor mounted log splitter. It performed very well and I have split about 2 ricks of hardwood firewood with it. When I received it I was a little dissapointed with the 3/8 inch hole in the cylinder wall under the 1/2 inch port but this proved to be no hinderance to the cylinders performance. I was so pleased with it that I bought a smaller cylinder to use on my log lifter I built for the splitter. I would reccomend these cylinders to anyone needing to build or repair a fire wood splitter. Thank you."

"Cylinder finally arrived (after being on backorder for weeks) with much of the paint missing. Apparently it was not packaged in ANYTHING, as it had been sliding around in the back of the UPS truck for a day according to the UPS driver. I installed it on my wood splitter anyways (could not wait for another one to be shipped). The cylinder worked for about an hour and a half, then would no longer do much of anything. It seems, after discussing my experience with the NorTrac support personnel, that the seal at the rear of the ram failed. The gentleman I spoke with was very helpful with the warranty process, however the cylinder is on backorder again, and I am still waiting for a replacement weeks later.
Thumbs down :-(
