That would definately get them to see this in a different way if you took it back. Take it back and tell them you want the cylinder to be made like this one around the trunion. It's from a 96 Cat 416B w/single trunion mounted piston for front bucket and it's been through hard work, still original and still working as it should. This is the design this splitter trunion will need to make it last longer than 6 years and it will still need to be watched as now I am afraid of anything else that will come from this splitter. I will definately have the goggles/safety glasses on my safety gear now. I always wore tight fitting leather gloves and ear protection but after this the eyes will need to be protected as well.
