Velvac says its line of direct-replacement OEM fifth-wheel cylinders feature a gold anodized cylinder tube for corrosion protection, plus a corrosion-resistant stainless-steel shaft. According to the company, the front and rear covers are made of cast aluminum for precision fit and durability, while a bushing and wiper seal in the front cover provide protection against contaminants, longer shaft life and smoother operation.

Another plus, Velvac says, is the molded single-piece piston cup designed for smooth, long-lasting operation, even in extreme conditions. Technical specifications include 1/4-inch FPT ports, 5/8-inch diameter shaft, 17/32-inch diameter clevis hole and 100-psi recommended operating pressure.
