I am looking at building a hydraulic snowblower lift for my LX178 using the lift cylinder from a 318. I need to know some more about that cylinder and it's capacity.
Does anyone know the hydraulic system presssure of a 318 and the diameters of the cylinder and rod. A good guess would help as well. I coule even work with the outside diameter.
Alternately, lifting force as utilized in the 318 would be nice, but I can calculate from the specifics.
Thanks to all

Figure 2" bore, 4" stroke, 5/8" rod and 600 psi and you won't be far off the mark. That's what most implement lift cylinders are and where most implement relief valves are set as a minimum. Any errors will be in the plus column for capacity.
