At RS Components, we have a range of tools available to keep your hydraulic assemblies moving.
Ideal for lifting and positioning equipment in restricted or small spaces, hand-operated hydraulic jacks are lightweight and compact enough to assist in confined spaces, a small force to an area of hydraulic fluid which in turn generates pressure in the fluid via a pump plunger. The capacity of jacks differ, with some supporting smaller vehicles and others lifting much larger objects such as vans, trucks or more.
Hydraulic spreaders are designed for use in small access gaps or when working at height and jacks can't be used. With an impressive spreading force of 10000 psi, the system is simple to operate and reduces physical demand to a minimum.
