Hydraulics
« on: September 29, 2016, 10:46:07 PM »

Hi,
Hope this is the right place for this!
I'm looking for some help advice on using hydraulics.  I'd like to have two independently controlled functions - one with a single ram and one with two rams acting in unison/parallel.  I've looked at this website http://www.wtbcar.com/shopping/index.php?route=product/category&path=20_27 but aside from the rams (and hoses) I've no idea what I'd need.  I'd also like to know what kind of loads these could handle but don't have any idea.  Can anyone help? 


Also, is there a UK or european supplier of similar stuff?


Thanks in advance
Phil

what you will require is ,oil Tank for the oil ,pipe, pipe end fittings angled and straight ,valve block ,something to control valve block, and rams for your purpose.in the real world there is a filter but I do not know if there might be one in the tank .

Very few RC model boats use hydraulics, whereas they seem common in 1/14 scale RC trucks. You might get more response here http://rctruckandconstruction.com/

You will also need a pump,... I think this one comes from Europe.

So, no complaining about cost.  %)
