    I have a bum angle cylinder on my setup and I have to order a new one.

    I know its a 1 1/2 inch ram, but theres a 10 and a 12 inch model available.

    What does that asking for? The length of the ram only when extended? Or a length of the cylinder.

    Id have to show you almost but depending on how you measure and from where you can come up with exactly ten inches and exactly 12 inches.

    Its a Meyer MD11 7.5 blade.

    Im sure they are asking for the length of the ram now that I reconsider but from where to where?

    Pretty sure they mean the length of the stroke, the distance travelled between collapsed and expanded....

    Nate.....Dude. Thank you. Thats awsome.

    I had already figured it out honestly but that collar on the tube is 2 inches long to make it confusing since theres a 10 and a 12 available.

    But yeah thats the measurement and it is a 10 like yours Card.

    Thanks guys.
