FAQ

Investment is actually 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, simplified 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.

Contact us today to discuss how we can help you develop electrohydraulic steering solutions on your machine.

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.
