Frequently asked questions.
How long will my repair take?
This can be a difficult question as cylinders vary greatly in size and style. Time for the repair also depends a lot on the work required. Generally, for a straight forward seal replacement,rod polish and hone on cylinder bores ranging from 2″ – 12″ and up to 5 meters in the length the normal time would be 2 working days. Rod repair and/or replacement, seal replacement generally 3-4 working days. Major works like new barrel or re-manufacturing new mounting/bushings would be around 7-10 working days.
We encourage to set deadlines together with you at the booking stage so we can deliver to you as promised.

How much warranty will i get, What are the buying risks?
Generally 12 month warranty applies to our cylinder repairs as long as it has been repaired to our standard advised. For instance if we mention that marks and damage is present on the cylinder rod and you don’t wish to replace it/repair it that is fine but in this instance we would not provide a warranty on the repair as seal damage and failure is likely to occur with in the 12 months. In some cases the customer may be happy with this as they need a very fast repair solution. We will always advise you if we cannot give a warranty on your repair.
