Hydraulic cylinders and hydraulic pistons are interchangeable in common language but technically, they are not the same.
The hydraulic piston moves thanks to the fluid and it is the mobile part of the hydraulic component body.
The hydraulic component body is made of a cylinder (the tube) and a piston or stem made from a full round.
The hydraulic piston slides through the hydraulic cylinder by the effect of the pressurized oil inside the cylinder itself.
Hydraulic pistons for heavy machineries have a bigger size than standard hydraulic cylinders used for instance for log splitters.
For this reason, Damecomm, apart from providing hydraulic pistons, cares also about the delivery of the hydraulic component straight to our customers address.
