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.


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!

Case Study: Commercial Hydraulics Pumps

At Hydraulics Online we have extensive, competitive access to both leading and lesser-known hydraulic pump manufacturers from all other the world – including Commercial Hydraulics pumps.

Having peace of mind is key when buying any hydraulic equipment; you want to be able to “fit and forget”. We also understand that sometimes you actually needed something “yesterday” and that your budget is always being asked to stretch that… little… bit… further.

That’s why we offer a range of completely interchangeable, direct equivalents to the Commercial Hydraulics pumps range. Built and tested here in the UK, you can be assured of a quality product that can more often than not be dispatched within 24 hours. So, even if you’re literally stranded on a vessel out at sea, we can take the pressure!

Commercial Hydraulics Pump 2 Staying close to home, a company who supply spare parts for the mining, construction, cement, oil and gas industries enquired about a direct equivalent to a Commercial Hydraulics P51 pump. They had bought a similar pump from us about six weeks previously and their customer was more than happy with its performance. Like the original Commercial Hydraulics P51 pump, the direct equivalent (pictured here) has a priority flow divider.

Other features of the Commercial Hydraulics P51 pump (and the equivalent) include: speeds of up to 2400 rpm and pressures up to 3000 psi (206 bar) and output flows reaching up to 66 gpm (250 lpm). The PGM050 (and equivalent) pump has an average torque of up to 1720 in-lbs (2016 kg-cm) at 2000 psi (137 bar) while the PGM051 (and equiavlent) pump has an average torque of up to 2250 in-lbs (2592 kg-cm) at 2500 psi (172 bar). Optional priority, two-speed, and unloader valves are available.

Commercial Hydraulics Pumps 2Travelling a little further afield, a large offshore oil company recently enquired about a Commercial Hydraulics P365 / P330 tandem pump; there was no time to spare as there was a breakdown on one of their accommodation rigs. The Commercial Hydraulics pumps were on an 18 week lead time, not the news the customer wanted to hear, however, we were able to offer a direct equivalent (pictured here) from stock… a quality product, built and tested here in the UK. The customer placed their order instantly and the pump was dispatched within 24 hours.

Some of the features of the Commercial Hydraulics P365 pump (and the direct equivalent) include: speeds ranging between 900-2400 rpm and fluid displacements up to 9.0 cir (147.5 ccr). It maintains a continuous pressure up to 3500 psi (241 bar) with intermittent pressures up to 4000 psi (275 bar) and has output flows of up to 90.7 gpm (343.3 lpm). The motor torque ranges from 1705-3740 in-lbs (1964-4308 kg-cm) at 2400 rpm. It also includes high strength, one-piece integral shafts.

Features of the Commercial Hydraulics P330 pump features include: Speeds from 900-3000 rpm; Fluid displacements up to 3.94 cir (64.6 ccr); continuous pressures up to 3500 psi (241 bar) with intermittent pressures up to 4000 psi (275 bar); Output flows up to 50.1 gpm (190 lpm); Motor torque from 980-1685 in-lbs (1129-1941 kg-cm) at 3000 rpm; High strength one-piece integral shafts.

Commercial Hydraulic Pump 3So, one last example… a UK-based ship maintenance and supplies company enquired after a Commercial Hydraulics P365 Series pump. After quoting on the original Commercial Hydraulics P365 unit, we also offered to quote on the “direct equivalent” with its keener cost and lead time.

Again, the P365 equivalent (pictured here) is a quality, British product offering the same features and performance as the original Commercial Hydraulics pump; it reaches speeds between 900-2400 rpm and has fluid displacements up to 9.0 cir (147.5 ccr) and maintains a continuous pressure of up to 3500 psi (241 bar) with intermittent pressures up to 4000 psi (275 bar). Output flows reach up to 90.7 gpm (343.3 lpm) and motor torque ranges between 1705-3740 in-lbs (1964-4308 kg-cm) at 2400 rpm. This pump also includes a high strength one-piece integral shaft. Needless to say, the customer ordered the direct equivalent and took delivery sooner than he had hoped possible, with money to spare!

Click here if you would like to find out more about the Commercial Hydraulics pumps range, or contact one of the team if you would like to find more about the time and cost savings you can make by taking a direct equivalent instead. The choice is yours.
