Optimising agricultural efficiency: Streamlining machinery with decentralised mini hydraulic power units

22 February, 2024

Numerous specialised agricultural machinery feature a multitude of ancillary functions and individual modules integral to various agricultural processes. Notably, not all of these functions necessitate direct supply from central hydraulics.


Using compact decentralised mini hydraulic power units for driving and controlling these specific functions not only reduces tubing but also streamlines installation in close proximity to the control function.

Examples of decentralised controllable functions in the harvester are the control of the discharge pipe or the ejection flap in combine harvesters and forage harvesters or the conveyor belts in potato and beet harvesters. In the HAWE Hydraulik product range, there are mini hydraulic power units for this purpose, which take over the power generation and control directly at the consumer. Due to their low size, they can be installed close to the consumer. The hydraulic power pack works as a self-sufficient unit and only needs to be powered. The machine manufacturer saves long hydraulic hose lines, reduces losses and simplifies commissioning.

Two product types from the HAWE Hydraulik modular product kit include the mini hydraulic power pack type A100 is available with either DC or AC motor. In the case of the HR type, the built-in possibility of reversing the direction of rotation of the engine also makes it easy to control a double-acting cylinder. An additional directional valve is then no longer required for this.

Furthermore, the mini hydraulic power unit type HR ensures overload protection of the motor by an integrated temperature switch and can be connected to various actuators. The installation position remains flexible, allowing for an arbitrary placement, while control remains consistent, facilitated for instance, through a joystick within the driver’s cab. Upon scrutinising the machine design from the perspective of decentralised power generation and minimal energy consumption, additional functionalities inherent to this decentralised drive become apparent, yielding further advantages.
