Yale universal cylinder YS

Single-acting with spring return, capacity 5 – 100 t

Robust construction with long guides allows the units to withstand abuse and better tolerate eccentric and side loading, yet is convenient to use with only one quickrelease coupler hose connection and a spring return.

Universal cylinders are designed for all jobs where high forces but compact dimensions are required: e.g. straightening steel constructions, removing parts like shafts, axles, lifting, positioning, weighing, supporting, testing as well as for all general assembly and repair applications. Due to the various mounting threads the cylinders can easily be installed in clamping devices, welding fixtures, frame presses etc.
