Leveling Cylinders Frequently Asked Questions
Hydraulic leveling cylinders are used to stabilize a working platform. Also known as outriggers, stabilizers, leveling jacks and landing gear, they provide a stable base by distributing the load over a wider base. In short, it's a device that helps keep your machinery level, stable, and safe. Leveling cylinders come in various sizes and capacities, so it's important to choose one that's appropriate for your needs.
A mechanical locking leveling cylinder can achieve a compressive load strength 3-5 times the lifting capacity with zero deflection. A hydraulic locking leveling cylinder provides ease of use and reduced setup and tear down time.
Both styles of nut offer the ability to mechanically lock a cylinder at a specific extension. A standard nut is a solid, single piece machined from high tensile strength material. A split nut is very similar but split down the centre and hinged allowing for faster setup and tear down.
