Hydraulic Lifting Equipment

Types of Hydraulic Lifting Equipment

Hydraulics play an important part in many types of devices and equipment for almost any sector. Even the emergency services use hydraulic cutters and spreaders in rescue operations. But for lifting gear, hydraulics play an often essential role for lifting heavy and awkward loads in confined spaces without the need for a power supply.

Here you will find some basic information on the types of hydraulic lifting equipment we can supply. All models will have varied specifications such as lifting capacities, pressure, cylinder fluid capacity, lifting heights etc. so check the technical information on each relevant product page.

Hydraulic Jacks

Hydraulic jacks are typically supplied ready to use, with oil, operating lever and carry handle and claw where applicable. We also offer a range of trolley jacks with up to 7000kg capacities, floor jacks and bottle jacks to our customers.
Sometimes referred to as a hydraulic car jack due to the fact that this is how they are frequently used – to jack up a car for working under the vehicle, this must be done in accordance with safety protocols.
Aluminium jacks are extremely light weight yet have a high lifting capacity up to 100 tonnes, and are simple to operate.

Jack trolleys and toe jacks are popular tools for workshops, metal fabrications, engineering, construction, ship building and all kinds of lifting applications. Toe jacks come in an array of capacities up to 25000kg.

Most hydraulic Jacks are fitted with overload prevention valves, operating lever, a safety lock nut, providing absolute safety over a long period.

We also supply Bottle Jacks with lifting capacities up to 20 tonne in the standard ranges. They have stable bases and minimal effort pumping handles. Our bottle jacks enjoy an entire page to themselves on our site, complete with instructions on how to use them effectively and safely when handling heavier loads. Brands such as Delta and Raptor are represented in this line up and if you cannot find what you are looking for, our staff will be happy to help.  

Hydraulic Cylinder

Hydraulic cylinders are used for lifting tasks but are also commonly utilised for pushing, pulling and holding and bending applications. They incorporate a lock nut to ensure a positive hold in any position. Hydraulic pressure can be released so the cylinders work like mechanical supports.

Compact hydraulic cylinders  come in  low height and shorty models as well as single or double acting models. The latter double type boast quicker and better performance levels. They are recommended for many lifting applications and can also be used for pushing, levelling and pressing purposes especially useful in the tightest confined spaces. Single acting hollow cylinders are also available for achieving larger distances.

They are made for lifting and positioning jobs in addition to all general maintenance operations, where low height, portability, and light weight devices are considered necessary.
These incredibly versatile cylinders with capacities up to 100 tonnes available at Lifting Gear Direct are found in many industrial areas like steel, civil engineering, construction industry, power plants and off-shore industries.

Hydraulic Pump

Hydraulic pumps convert mechanical energy into hydraulic energy. You input the force which creates pressure and subsequent flow. These are ideal for auxiliary power providing an independent means of powering hydraulic cylinders and other devices. 

We stock and supply hydraulic pumps from a number of well-known brands, including Enerpac and Yale. This gives you lots of choice and also lets you select kit which is compatible with any existing equipment you have available. Hydraulic pumps come in single or 2 speed options and up to 3000cc reservoir capacities in our standard version. If you need higher then take a look at the Yale models in our shop by brand -Yale category.

Of course regardless of the make or model of hydraulic pump you pick, you can be certain of receiving a high quality product at a cost effective price point. Some models offer benefits like variable speed settings and pressure release valves to help comply with safety regulations relating to systems of this kind and plenty of other advantageous features.

You might be surprised by the variety of specifications and capabilities which make up the models in our hydraulic pump range, each of which runs at 700 bar maximum pressure.

Hydraulic Fittings

When you use hydraulic lifting equipment you may need specific hydraulic fittings to connect them up. We can supply a range of manifolds, hoses and couplers for connecting multiple pieces of hydraulic equipment.  Our collection of pressure gauges enable you to keep tabs on the pressure used by your equipment, browse our range online for all the details.

Hydraulic Tools

Lifting Gear Direct are able to supply a number of hydraulic tools for difficult tasks. The hydraulic chain cutter makes light work of cutting chain to the required length. There is also a hydraulic tool repair kit, ideal for maintenance and repair tasks in factories and workshops.

Why are Hydraulic jacks useful?

Hydraulic jacks, especially bottle jacks are a useful piece of equipment, they are pretty compact to store and easy to use. A hydraulic jack is great for jacking up vehicles to work underneath of for simple tyre changes.

What Does Hydraulics involve?

 Hydraulics relates to the creation of power by using a series of hydraulic fluid, pipes and valves to apply pressure to the fluid in order to transfer that energy into usable power or force. For example with a hydraulic cylinder, fluid is forced from one chamber to another smaller one to force the lifting pad up and keep it there until the pressure is released via a release valve.
