"It's just horses for courses, personally I love the job, agree that the increased paperwork and pushing more 'office' tasks onto engineers is becoming a drag. Wages have always been out of wack with the skills required. I might only be 32, so a pup in the grand scheme of things but I've been around this all my life since the age of 5! (Father worked as a self employed one man band forklift engineer). It's all I've ever wanted to do and it's true you, either love it or hate it. ".

"If you're not used to dissembling / resealing a hydraulic cylinder then it may be best to let a hydraulic shop overhaul it for you. Lift cylinder removal / refitting is really a 2 person operation as another pair of hands / eyes is always useful when dealing with heavy & long objects.".
