You don't have to walk far these days to see the power of hydraulic systems and hoses in action.

Every time you pull or push a spool valve on your tractor, oil is rapidly pumped in one direction or another in a bid to carry out work. Maintaining oil pressure keeps your loader in the air.

It allows our tractor transmissions, balers, silage mowers and diet feeders to do the jobs they do. Without safe and modern hydraulic systems farmers would be back in the old times, output would be crippled and manual labour costs would rocket.
