The title of this article might be confused some of you because you hardly encounter and using hydraulic tools everyday because this kind of tool is actually pretty helpful around the house although the most common usage is around the industrial and automotive sites. Even if the hydraulics is available for household usage, the capacity or the size of the hydraulic tools are not as large as the hydraulics for industrial usage. It is understandable why the hydraulic tools are largely used in the industrial areas instead of the common household because the hydraulics is helping those industries to save energies, especially the electricity energies.
For those who are working in the industries and automotive sites, they know that the power units that supply the power for the production floors and other departments are relying on the hydraulics. Hydraulic power units are consisting of reservoir, hydraulic pump, and a motor. It is commonly known that the power units are taking a lot of energies to drive the hydraulics, but when it is already turn on, the energy consume can be but down by half of it. One unique fact about hydraulic tools is they are creating high pressure in considerably small area.
Perhaps the closest usage of hydraulic tools in our everyday life is when you driving by a big rig or big trucks. You can hear some kind of hissing every time the drivers are stepping on the brake pedal and that is because the brake system is equipped with hydraulic unit to provide better brake pace. If you able to sum up, the usage of hydraulic tools are various and not only at the industrial and automotive sites, but also at fields like meat processing site, agriculture tools and machineries, government or military field, construction sites, aerospace departments, material handling, and even on the oil spill clean up project.
