Seals for Woodmizer Blade Tensioner
« on: September 16, 2020, 02:36:47 PM »
I blew out one of the 1 in seals on the blade tensioner on my 2003 LT40. The seals kit is on backorder with Woodmiizer. Has any one sourced the seals from another supplier.

If you have a nearby hydraulic cylinder rebuilding shop, I would go there.  They probably can match the diameter of the "square" O rings.

I've had to do what MM said a couple times.  My local hardware store had a hydraulic o ring assortment that worked temporarily
