Last week I had the gas lifts replaced on Buster's canopy. What a mission finding a supplier in PTA! This is after Midas did not have the correct size, and not wanting to drive to Silverton or to PTA West. :?

I was given a business card for Des Malan from Lift Fill Field Services (Pty) Ltd. I gave Des a call and he said he could still help me that very same day. :thumbup:

When Des arrived, he measured the Gas Lifts / Struts, and filled them to the correct pressure for the application, I think it was 220n or 250n (the canopy door is not too heavy). He fitted the new ones and then re-gassed the old ones free of charge (now I have a spare set). :thumbup:

I can't remember the make he fitted, all I know is they are manufactured in Korea for an Australian company. They have a double seal whereas, for example, some brands only have 1 seal. He offers a 2 year guarantee on this product, which is great considering other brands offer only a 1 year guarantee. :thumbup: :thumbup:

So now some of you are probably wondering why I just didn't refill and use the old ones... :slap: So... The old ones are approximately 5 years old, and there would be no guarantee that they would last another year, let alone 2 years. I can have peace of mind that these new ones have the 2 year guarantee and I won't have to sukkel!! :cooldude:

Cost was R400.00 for both, Des came to me and did the job on the premises (after hours), 2 year guarantee and friendly service! What a bargain and a pleasure! :thumbup: :thumbup:

I can definitely recommend Des for any kind of Gas Strut / Gas Lift that you need!

He can be contacted on 083 874 1114 and emailed on liftfill@gmail.com

Hi Stuart,
thanks for this info. Are they able to supply gas struts for the tailgate lowering? There is a company in Midrand that does them but they are very pricey!

Cheers Greg

Hi! I'm not sure, you'd have to give Des a call and see if he can help, if he can't, he might know someone that can! :thumbup:
