    What is the consensus for leaking cylinder on 8600SW angle ram as to rebuild or replace and keep as spare? One truck operation so leaning towards replace but being a Yankee it breaks my heart to spend the money!
    On a good note off fishing in Florida tomorrow. TIA Marty

    Those cylinders are usually junk once they break. Suggest you do replace and only repair old one if you have a really good hydraulic shop.
