It’s no secret that we love hydraulics. The vast range of applications that we’re always involved with means that no two days are the same, and there’s certainly never a dull moment knowing that we’re very much involved in “keeping the wheels turning” all over world. In fact, at times we’re making the wheels do more than just turn…
The hydraulic power packs pictured here were made to order for a new customer; a specialist leisure ride design and manufacturing company whose product range extends from monorails and roller coasters to water rides and lifts. See! Hydraulics are fun too!
In this instance, the Hydraulics Online team were approached for technical support on a new roller coaster design project. The bespoke mini hydraulic power packs (3 of 20) here are to be powered by 0.55kW, 240vAC single phase cap start – cap run motors, complete with additional pressure-line switch operating between 20-200 bar. The design also called for double-acting cylinders (25mm bore, 16mm rod, 250mm stroke) which are also pictured here.
Whether you are looking for a relatively standard 240v hydraulic power pack, want to improve the performance of your existing system or are looking for a bespoke (240v) hydraulic power pack as part of a larger hydraulic systems design project then look no further. We can help.

Supporting customers’ new product development activities and delivering tender-winning solutions is all in a day’s work for the technical team here at Hydraulics Online. Our philosophy is one of not just “taking orders”, unless that’s all that our customers want and need us to do. Instead, we make it our business to understand your business… only then can we be sure that we are supplying you with hydraulic equipment that really is “fit for purpose”. Unfortunately, not everyone shares this way of thinking.
A global specialist vehicle converter, contacted the technical team recently looking for support having been let down by their existing supplier. They had previously taken delivery of a hydraulic power pack that had been incorrectly specified and was simply not suitable for their application; their successful tender for a major new contract was at stake.
Having asked the “right” questions and gathered as much information as they could about the application and its operating parameters, the technical team proposed an alternative system and suggested some additional improvements and safety features that could be made to the design.
Within the week the customer received their hydraulic power pack and additional equipment, and shortly afterwards began to put it through its paces as the prototype platform lift of a commercial vehicle. It worked a treat. The customer then placed an additional order to to enable them to implement our earlier recommendations for additional systems improvements… and we are delighted to say that they won the tender!
So whether you are looking for a relatively standard hydraulic power pack, or a bespoke unit as part of a larger hydraulic systems design project then you’ve come to the right place. You can find out more about the different types of hydraulic power unit here or…

It’s a small world at Hydraulics Online – whether delivering our products to customers locally or to customers abroad, we can take the pressure!
We recently had an enquiry from an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) in New Zealand; the company were looking for a hydraulic power pack manufacturer in the UK… to provide a quality, British product. The team at Hydraulics Online have a wealth of experience in building and supplying hydraulic power packs, so we knew exactly what design and specification would work best in the customer’s application (a single-acting, 12v DC hydraulic power pack with flow control) and were able to quote instantly. The customer requested a trial power pack, which we proceeded to build and ship the same day.
After being put through a period of very rigorous testing over a number of weeks, the power pack had more than proved itself… delivering the performance that our OEM was looking for as a key component within his product. As far as an OEM is concerned, having peace of mind and being able to “fit and forget” hydraulic components is clearly vital.
We’re delighted to say that a further ten hydraulic power packs were shipped to New Zealand last week, the first of many given that our hydraulic equipment is now an integral part of this OEM’s core product design… Proof that here at Hydraulics Online, we really do understand the importance of increasing the value of an OEM’s brand and product range. Every project we work on is scrutinized to ensure a successful design and ongoing cost-effective manufacturing, using components that truly are “fit for purpose”.
“We approached Hydraulics Online 18 months ago for assistance in the design and supply of bespoke hydraulic control systems. As a result of their vast technical knowledge and wide product range available, we were able to develop a system which was both competitively priced and completely tailored to suit our application.
Since our initial projects with Hydraulics Online, we have worked together to develop further systems to complement our product range, further heightening our position in the market place. They have also been a valuable technical partner assisting our engineering personnel on site with issues faced in the field. Overall, a valuable tool for any business.” – An appraisal from another satisfied OEM customer.
