Leaking Cab Tilt Cylinders from Isuzu Hino and Volvo prime movers can be stripped cleaned and resealed with great cost savings, unfortunately most Fleet owners and some owner operators don’t know that this is possible.
Prime Movers that have cabs that tilt to access the engine bay are fitted hydraulically operated Cab tilt cylinders. These cylinders are used to safely raise and lower the cab for access to the engine for regular inspection and or maintenance.
When these Cab tilt cylinders eventually start to leak oil and or fail to raise or tilt the cab, most manufacturers advise that they are a throwaway replacement item, this is not entirely true.
Replacement cab tilt units cost between $600 and $1500 and in the case for this Hino Prime Mover $3000.
The high cost of this Hino cab tilt cylinder stems from the fact that it is very well designed and built unit that is fitted with hydraulic and mechanical safety interlocks as well as electrical limit switches.
What most Fleet owners and some owner operators don’t realise is that most truck cab tilt cylinders can be stripped cleaned and resealed with great cost savings.
