Are destructive contaminants hiding in your new hydraulic cylinder?

It has been said that cylinders are the top contributor to hydraulic system contamination. Aggressive Hydraulics has changed that with our Culture of Cleanliness. This culture is the standard which every product is held to. We have implemented a Fluid Cleanliness Program that exceeds top OEM standards. Ordering from Aggressive Hydraulics reduces the risk of hydraulic system contamination stemming from the cylinder.
