    My Bobcat Tilt-Tach attachment sprung a leak from the cylinder inside, so I popped it apart to figure out why, maybe it was packed full of concrete crush???????????

    Cleaned it all out with my bare hands, oil everywhere:

    The leaky cylinder, the main seal on the outside was chewed up from all the grinding the crush did on the seal:

    I've got a better solution for it later on, the guards on the top of the attachment were taken out after I bought it, so that's where the crush entered in from.
