FO2, FO3, and FO4 Flat 1(reg) models are double-acting, single-end rod cylinders with stainless-steel bodies that multiply the force output by supplying air to multiple pistons on extension. The cylinders allow the user to double, triple, or quadruple their force. Only one piston is powered on the return stroke, saving air volume and operating costs. The FO2, FO3, and FO4 are available in three bore sizes (2 1/2, 3, and 4 inches), and standard options include fluroelastomer and low-friction seals, Magnalube(reg) G, front- and rear-port positioning, and rod wiper.
