Before you select any hydraulic pump, however, there are several important pieces of information to take into consideration that will help you match it with the right hydraulic tool, cylinder, or equipment. What is the application? How much power is needed? How many units will the hydraulic pump need to power? How fast does the hydraulic pump need to be? Is there an air or electric power source available? Your answers to these questions will help narrow your search from hundreds of hydraulic pumps down to the one you need.
Here are the simple differences between the most common types of hydraulic pumps:
- A hydraulic hand pump is powered by manual movement and meant for projects requiring portability.
- An electric hydraulic pump is powered by plug-in electricity or battery pack and meant for projects requiring versatility.
- An air hydraulic pump is powered by an air supply or manual movement and meant for projects requiring efficiency.
- A gas hydraulic pump is powered by a gasoline engine and meant for projects requiring maximum output.
