Single-Acting Hydraulic Cylinders for Custom Applications
Manitowoc cylinders are precision-manufactured from special pressure-rated ASTM A-53 Grade B pipe. Each cylinder plunger/rod is turned and then polished to a 16 to 32 RMS finish for optimal function and sealing performance. The casing, or cylinder barrel, is welded together using thick end-head plate and special welding wire to ensure leak-free pressure rated performance. Once all the components are produced and final assembly is conducted, each cylinder is 100% hydraulically tested for smooth operation and proper performance before shipping.
DUSL-style cylinders feature two replaceable glass-filled nylon wear rings in the upper bearing housing that provide superior load bearing capabilities. The seal and wiper are made from a high performance thermoset polyurethane compound for long life and ozone and abrasion resistance.
SUSL-style cylinder is made using a cast-iron upper bearing housing that is easily replaceable and will perform ruggedly for many years. The seal and wiper are made from a highly abrasion-resistant buna N compound that has proven itself for decades.
All Manitowoc cylinders can be purchased with a choice of optional fiberglass coating or in your choice of five standard finish colors. Custom colors are available for an additional charge. For harsher applications, optional industrial hard chrome is available for the plunger surface to prolong life and prevent corrosion.

Manitowoc Lifts / Gilbarco - Automotive Lifts
Manitowoc Lifts is the company that took over the Gilbarco auto lift division. Manitowoc kept the in-ground product line alive and further broadened it offering top quality, finely engineered two-post surface mount lifts.
If you own a Gilbarco style Manitowoc in-ground lift or any of the Manitowoc surface mount lifts, SVI is the right place for repair parts. SVI has been supplying the auto lift industry the right parts to keep virtually all lifts up and in service since 1977. Our engineering department is top notch and always willing to help identify reasonable solutions.
Manitowoc and Gilbarco lifts can still be found all over this country and especially up and down the eastern seaboard. From Exxon stations to Firestone locations, all the auto lifts can be repaired so they can continue providing lift owners with many more years of low-cost reliable service. No other piece of equipment makes as much revenue for shop owners as their auto lifts. Avoid the high cost of replacement and instead repair it.
