Hydraulics

Without doubt, there is never a dull moment here at Hydraulics Online; the team’s love of hydraulics never even begins to tire, such is the constant stream of new customers, new applications and new projects that we are involved with each day. No two days are ever the same.

From around the corner to the other side of the world, from hobbyists and pleasure-seekers to big “household” names, and from engineers who needed a part “yesterday” to universities and research centres who are helping to define the future…  Our customers come from all walks of life and from all corners of the globe. Literally.

Some haven’t any knowledge about hydraulics, or only ever need hydraulics “once in a blue moon”, while others are passionate about hydraulic engineering and are looking for regular cost-effective and reliable supplies of known equipment.

We know our stuff…

Hydraulics Online have always been fast, friendly and competitive but we value them most because they are innovative and can find answers to the really tough problems.

2 bsi-iso-9001So, our technical team enjoy a reputation for consistently providing practical, trusted advice and solutions as far as hydraulics are concerned. That’s only right isn’t it? But, our ISO 9001 accreditation means that we walk the hydraulics talk too… and do what we say we’re going to do  – when we say we’re going to do it!

Can I thank you for your speedy service. The rig is operational and we will now meet tomorrow’s delivery requirement.

There are plenty more testimonials where these came from… But don’t just take our word for it - click through and see for yourself.

Back to our customers. It’s hard to think of an industry, market or corner of the world where we haven’t supplied hydraulics and designed systems. Our work to date spans: Agricultural and forestry, energy and power generation, other hydraulic engineering ”specialists”, manufacturing, industry and mining, marine and offshore, mobile hydraulicsoriginal equipment manufacturers and other specialist applications e.g. ATEX

lavenderHydraulics probably wouldn’t be your first thought if you were standing in a beautiful lavender field, but a new customer contacted the team looking for hydraulic systems design support to build a new piece of equipment – a ‘lavender lifter’ to de-head and harvest the flowers using bristle heads, much like a road sweeper, albeit much more gently! The team worked through the design and then quoted for a hydraulic motor with 50cc end ports, a 16mm flange and a 3/8″ BSP priority flow divider. It was dispatched the very next day.

Marine-Winch

Hydraulics are commonly found in marine and offshore equipment, and a well-established overseas hydraulic engineering company approached the team looking for a radial piston motor to replace an existing unit used on a marine winch system.  The original motor was obsolete, but it also had a non-standard shaft.

Marine WinchWorking from photos taken of the original unit, Hydraulics Online identified that an Italgroup (IAMD series) radial piston motor with a bespoke shaft was perfect for the job.

“Just to let you know how impressed I am with your service… Not only did you recognise the motor I needed where others had failed to do so, but you were able to despatch a replacement to me that same day.”

So, whoever you are, whatever you do (even if you’re Concorde, yes Concorde!) if you need hydraulics you’ve come to the right place!

Summer is here! Hydraulic Motor for Lavender Picking

Now and again, the team receive requests that are a little bit different – you might say they’re ‘blooming marvellous’!

A new customer, who produces a range of lavender toiletries and gifts, contacted the technical team recently looking for hydraulic systems design support. The company was looking to build a new piece of equipment; a ‘lavender lifter’ to de-head and harvest lavender flowers using bristle heads, much like a road sweeper – albeit much more gently!

The team worked through the proposed design and then quoted for a hydraulic motor with 50cc end ports, a 16mm flange and a priority flow divider 3/8 BSP and it was despatched the next day. The sweet smell of success!

Testimonial: Agricultural Hydraulics

We don’t just chew the cud as far as agricultural hydraulics are concerned. Whether you are looking for replacement agricultural hydraulics, want to improve the performance of your existing equipment or have a design concept for a new agricultural machine that you would like to bring to life… then look no further. We can help.

But we would say that, wouldn’t we? Well, don’t just take our word for it, read on to see what a new agricultural customer (a long-established farming partnership, committed to animal welfare and offering organic, high-quality meat products) had to say after dealing with Hydraulics Online for the first time; they were simply over the “moooooon”:

The components have arrived and are currently sitting like a rather wonderful art display on our boardroom table.

You have been so efficient that our local engineers who are going to make the frame will lag behind by quite a bit. Therefore initial testing will be in late June.  I will keep you posted.

This is one of those things where it is quite possible that other farmers are going to say, “I could do with one of those.” A commercial opportunity may exist.

I look forward to hearing more about the post whacker options and have attached my original proposal concerning the partial automation of our cattle crush. Since you have experience with the cow tipper, I would be interested in your rough quote on this – it is a longer term project.

We couldn’t have hoped to put it better ourselves, but we have plenty more agriculture and forestry-related testimonials if you’re still not quite convinced.

Case Study: Original Equipment Manufacturer - Harvesting Equipment

The Customer: Original Equipment Manufacturer of Mobile Harvesting Equipment

The Task: Hydraulics Online were approached to review the customer’s existing systems design and to highlight areas for possible improvement.

The Solution: A number of areas for improvement were identified and a revised systems design was put forward to the customer. The major changes centred on a new pump motor drive system together with all directional controls. These were implemented and, as promised, delivered significant improvements to systems performance and efficiency.

Testimonial: Welsh Farmer

Many thanks for the hydraulic pump that you sent me; your staff were very helpful going out of their way to help us. The serial numbers on our old pump were of no use so you asked us to send a photo and within the hour you had got one that matched. Excellent service from this company.
