We have just received delivery of the first of our hydraulic cylinders from Parker. Our order has been some what delayed, and sligtly mixed up, so they have shipped this cylinder ahead of the rest of the order to get us going. We have the Femur cylinder, the largest of the cylinders on the Mantis.
We picked up some garden hose so that we can lay out our hose routing and measure our hydraulic hose lengths, we will then order them from hosemaker, a very useful on-line service with a very helpful chap Roger who has been dealing with our endless questions. :)
