Do hydraulic snubbers have longer strokes than mechanical snubbers?

The hydraulic snubbers do have longer strokes by design. The maximum stroke for a mechanical snubber is 6", and the maximum stroke for hydraulic snubbers is 20". These are our standards, of course, we can do custom snubbers for greater strokes.
