Tie rod hydraulic cylinders are not as complex in terms of design as welded body cylinders. Tie rod hydraulic cylinders use high-strength threaded steel rods in order to hold the end caps to the cylinder barrel. Small bore cylinders typically have four tie rods whereas larger bore cylinders can have as many as twenty tie rods in order to withstand the forces produced by the cylinder.
Tie rod cylinders have been a go to for most agricultural applications for over 50 years. The hydraulic cylinder is used to transform the hydraulic fluid.
