What can the engine driven hydraulic power pack do?
The main benefit of engine powered hydraulic power pack is the ability to deliver hydraulic power to areas where electricity is limited, unavailable or unsafe to use.
Engine packs are driven from either a petrol or diesel engine usually at a fixed speed at its optimum speed for power and torque delivery. A range of pumps can be fitted depending on the flow and pressure required with the common control being manual single or multi lever valve banks.
The complete package is mounted onto a fabricated skid.
- Recovery of locomotives and rail stock following derailment, the equipment needs to be highly mobile or access to remote locations.
- Raising and lowering of wind turbine masts for maintenance.
- A hydraulic pump is used to transfer fish on farms between growth stages requiring temporary power from a portable power pack.
- Hydraulic power for various construction related machinery such as cranes, jibs, road cutting.
- Pile driving or powering augers.
- Deck mounted winches and jib on trawlers.
- Log splitters on forestry machinery, often combined with power barrow.
Should you go with Petrol or Diesel Engine Driven Hydraulic Power Pack?
Petrol engines are lighter, improving portability and are commonly built as units with carry handles or as a wheelbarrow format. Air-cooling and ripcord pull starting eliminates the need of radiators and batteries and makes for a compact lightweight package.
Diesel powered power packs are heavier which makes them less portable and typically require forklifting into position. Diesels also benefit from greater economy so tend to be used on larger and longer runtime applications.
Diesel packages have become highly evolved with radiator, electric start, acoustic covers, spark arrestors and remote controls a common feature.
