Machines Powered by Hydraulic Powerpacks That Help Society As you are aware we love hydraulic power, we wouldn’t do what we do if we didn’t. But, today we wanted to write an article on some of our favourite machines that are powered by hydraulic powerpacks. We have told you before that the world is a better place because of hydraulic powerpacks, and today we are going to prove it. Firstly we have chosen to look at how hydraulic powerpacks help the everyday mechanic. In the UK, there are as many as 36 million cars registered on the roads. At many points during a cars life, they will need to visit a garage. Hydraulic lifts are vital for mechanics to see and get under your car and our hydraulic powerpacks can easily connect to your mechanics lift, providing all the power it needs to lift up your car. This in turn not only makes a mechanics job much easier, but it also means your car has been thoroughly checked over. Thanks to hydraulic power your car will spend a minimal amount of time out of action. Did you know that hydraulic power is helping firemen across the globe? Cherry pickers were first used in orchards to help fruit pickers reach the fruit high up in trees. They were then used by electricians to service our telephone lines and now they are being used on fire trucks to help reach people in burning buildings. The cherry picker is a great example of how machines powered by hydraulic powerpacks allow our society to run smoothly. Not only does it provide fruit for us to eat, it also helps us communicate on our telephones and be saved if we are ever in that unimaginable circumstance. Finally we will look at how hydraulic power is being used for our entertainment needs. Today hydraulic power is used at many entertainment venues including fairgrounds and theatres. Hydraulic machinery and their power packs ensure our favourite ride; the Ferris wheel has the power to go round. Hydraulic power is also frequently used in theatres in order for some stages to rise up and then be lowered down again. Hydraulic power really does deserve more credit! Don’t you agree?
