Related applications

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Hydraulic solutions for forestry machines

    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.

  • Lawn and turf
    Lawn and turf

    Lawn and turf machines must adapt to their surroundings and the season – becoming sweepers or snow blowers as required. At Danfoss, we make hydraulic solutions to provide that flexibility and ensure safe and efficient operation.

  • Road building

  • All-wheel steering
    All-wheel steering

    All-wheel steering is one example of how Danfoss is at the forefront of machine versatility. This helps customers getting the most out of their equipment. Electrohydraulic steering system enables operators to manually adjust the steering mode, allowing them to best match machine performance to the task at hand.

  • Auto-guided steering system
    Auto-guided steering system

    To remain competitive in today’s agricultural equipment market, OEMs are offering satellite-based, automatic steering solutions.

  • Joystick steering
    Joystick steering

    Danfoss continues to lead the way with advanced, electrohydraulic joystick steering solutions. These offer design flexibility for you, superior machine controllability and performance for your customers.

  • Quick steering
    Quick steering

    The ability to customize a machine’s steering ratio gives operators added precision while keeping them in ultimate control. At Danfoss, we call this dynamic steering ratio adjustment “quick steering.”

  • Steer-by-wire

    Our fail-safe steer-by-wire solutions allow you to remove the steering column. You can then replace it with smaller, precise steering mechanisms such as a joystick or mini-wheel.
