Meeting your power demands

Think about the heaviest challenges in the open mining, road building and construction industry – tasks such as cutting through rock or the Arctic permafrost; compacting thick layers of hot asphalt; or lifting huge, prefabricated wall panels into place. The power demands on the machines that perform such work are colossal. Danfoss designs high-flow hydraulic solutions to meet those demands.

Everything about these heavy-duty excavators, dumpers, loaders and cranes is high capacity, and that means high fuel consumption. So, whether you’re a machine manufacturer or an operator, energy-efficient hydraulic components and systems make a lot of sense. 

At Danfoss, we produce a wide range of piston pumps and proportional PVG valves to meet the high-flow needs of big industrial machinery. Connected and managed by our intelligent PLUS+1® controls, they power the work functions that lift and move heavy loads. Ergonomic joysticks make work function operation easy – all with minimum noise and vibration for operator comfort.

Safety and accuracy are more important than ever when operating machines of this size. Operators can count on Danfoss steering units with flow amplifier to carry out all commands fast and precisely. Danfoss H1 transmission systems provide the necessary traction and speed.
