  • if (isSmallPicture) { Agriculture; } else if (isBigColumns) { Agriculture } else { Agriculture }

    Farmers need agricultural machines that deliver the same high productivity every season. Hydraulic solutions from Danfoss ensure world-class performance from each machine, and a comfortable, stress-free working environment for their operators.

  • if (isSmallPicture) { Construction; } else if (isBigColumns) { Construction } else { Construction }

    Space is limited on construction sites, and there are people working everywhere. Contractors need machines that can safely maneuver in a tight spot. At the same time they still need to be powerful enough to get the job done. At Danfoss, we deliver the components, software, and controls that enable your machines to run safely, efficiently and effectively.

  • if (isSmallPicture) { Forestry; } else if (isBigColumns) { Forestry } else { Forestry }

    Rough, sloping terrain and cramped working conditions call for robust and reliable forestry machines. We make sure you can manage everything from cutting trees and transport to preparing the forest floor for replanting. We have the smart hydraulic solutions your machines need for precise and efficient forestry operations.

Case studies


Investment is acutally the right definition when describing electrohydraulic solutions. Electrohydraulic steering allows you to step into the digital innovation: increased machine productivity (autoguidance, multiaxis steering), reduced TCO (less machine downtime, symplified hyd system, less wear) and increased operator comfort (reduced operator fatigue and cabin noise with improved handling and cabin visibility). At Danfoss, we have over 50 years of steering solutions experience. We engineer the steering of tomorrow today, with the highest safety and quality standards.

At Danfoss we take safety very seriously. Danfoss electrohydraulic steering components are compliant with the most recent safety standards and regulations. If you want to learn more about our Steer-by-Wire solutions click here.

Within traditional four-wheel steering (4WS) mode both axles on the machine move at the same steering angle as opposed to the electrohydraulic solution. In fact, Danfoss electrohydraulic all-wheel system allows dynamic 4WS mode with independent and adjustable rear axle. Take a look at the video.

We developed electrohydraulic steering sub-systems solutions to help reduce your time to market. Visit our steering solutions pages or contact your local Danfoss partner to learn more.
