Cylinder Manufacture & Repairs
Meadow Industries is a market leader in the provision of repaired and remanufactured hydraulic cylinders. With extensive engineering capabilities and years of hands-on experience, Meadow Industries is the best when it comes to restoring severely damaged hydraulic cylinders to prime working condition at the best possible price.
We are able to completely overhaul hydraulic cylinders of any size. Our workshop is fully equipped with hydraulic testing facilities and dismantling presses. We have honing capabilities up to 12,000mm length and 800mm bore with nut and gland tensioning up to 200,000nM allowing piston nuts to be torqued accurately to OEM specifications. Stripping facilities also include 20-tonne linear stripping force.
We are proud to offer benefits to clients of our extensive testing facilities which are compatible with mineral oils and fire retardant soluble fluids. Our welding bay included an automatic bore welder, capable of reclaiming cylinder clevises-large or small.
Hydraulic cylinders operating in Australia’s harsh conditions can endure a tough workload. While it may be possible to rush a cylinder back into basic working order after a component failure, these sorts of superficial repairs are always temporary. It takes the specialised equipment and expert understanding that Meadow Industries provides to truly restore the best performance and reliability of the unit.
Using the latest technology in machinery and software, Meadow Industries is able to produce quality products at a competitive price within a short lead time. We can machine complex products straight from your electronic model. Alternatively, we can create these models for you and feed this information into any one of our CNC machines. Some of our equipment includes Hartford Borer, Horizontal borer, Doosan, Daewoo and Mori Seiki lathes and machine centres.
Our large range of CNC machining and CAD/CAM programming capabilities, including grinding, precision boring, and wire EDM equipment, coupled with our extensive experience in machining non-traditional metals and alloys gives our clients the best comprehensive metalworking service in the industry.
Our comprehensive milling, turning, and grinding capabilities are streamlined to increase productivity with multiple precision machined parts produced simultaneously, streamlining complex geometries into a single process, meeting the most demanding tolerances to shorten lead times for manufacturing in production volumes.
In our dedicated hydraulic section, we supply and overhaul pumps, motors, drill motor valves and underground mining drill rigs. We can ensure that all items are not only repaired correctly but are fully tested to OEM specifications.
We have built our business on providing the best available rebuild service. Our staff has the skills and experience to provide a guaranteed rebuild service for hydraulic pumps, motors, cylinders and valves, centrifugal pumps, industrial gearboxes, drive shafts, couplings, gears and splines. We pride ourselves on always using improved replacement parts.

We manufacture the highest quality aftermarket components equal to or greater than OEM specifications at highly competitive prices.
We are highly experienced in the precision honing of hydraulic cylinder barrels. With two honing machines, we are able to precision hone a bore range from 25mm to 800mm diameter. Our surface finishes are guaranteed to be within seal manufacturer’s specifications. We have an extensive range of Dial Ball gauges for absolute consistency over the full length of the barrel.
At Meadow Industries we know that any downtime in your business results in lost production time and lost money. That’s why we have invested in the best equipment, the most skilled operators and the finest attention to detail to provide our clients with a precision honing, component rebuild and repair service that significantly reduces the costs associated with any downtime of your equipment. This results in a great boost to productivity and a significant reduction in expenditure.
As soon as an oil leak shows you that a cylinder needs repair, contact us and ask about our specialist repair and rebuild service. A leak indicates a risk that contaminants will enter the system, which can cause scratches in the cylinder wall, accelerating seal wear and causing internal leaks. These leaks lead to decreased performance and a shorter service life.
A Meadow Industries honed cylinder leads to a secure seal, smooth operation, and the best-extended seal life for any of your hydraulic cylinders. We improve bore geometry and create the perfect amount of crosshatch surface finish for good oil retention and ring support. Our specialist honing service has many advantages, including correction of geometrical issues and minor surface irregularities, uniform wear, improved lubrication and extended life of your seals.
