Forestry hydraulic cylinders

Motus designs and manufactures forestry hydraulic cylinders that provide impressive performance and power for demanding logging applications in harsh conditions and challenging environments. After acquiring a forestry hydraulic cylinder manufacturing company, we have an expanded offering for hydraulic solutions for the forestry industry.

The Motus quality difference

Forestry is a time sensitive industry relying on machinery to perform at harvest. Our cylinders deliver reliable performance and power, minimising delays and downtime. We build them to the highest quality standards, with superior, rust resistant materials, precision construction and rigorous testing. That’s why our rams come with a four-year full replacement guarantee.


The WRC series is our proven performer in agriculture and industrial standard duty applications. The series features a unique wire clip head design for easy and quick servicing. The cylinders have extremely compact componentry allowing for optimal stroke, full thickness tube throughout for superior strength and premium quality seals.

The WRC Series encompasses 100% of our stock range and is fully customisable using our cutting edge online configurator.


The Ultra series features a robust external threaded cap design with heavy-duty grade seals. The high mechanical strength makes this series ideal for heavy-duty industrial and commercial applications. The range is compatible with our stock mountings selection. Customisable cylinders and mounting options are also available.


The Elite Series features a super heavy-duty 4140 grade external threaded cap design. They’re the pinnacle of our range integrating the best materials available including super heavy-duty 10pc seal kits. We build them tough to deal with the hardest conditions in forestry, heavy industrial, mining and commercial applications. All Elite cylinders are fully customised to your requirements.
