The construction industry makes extensive use of hydraulics in virtually all types of fixed and portable construction equipment.  Hydraulics help to make construction machinery safer, work faster, perform more reliably, and operate more fuel-efficiently with a lower total cost of ownership.  Whether moving the earth or man-made materials, hydraulics makes construction possible.  Let ProActive Fluid Power help keep your hydraulic equipment well-maintained and working at peak efficiency.


Virtually all types of construction cranes – truck cranes, overhead cranes, aerial cranes, mobile cranes, gantry cranes and crane vessels – make use of hydraulics to lift and position heavy loads.

Earth Moving

Earth moving equipment such as excavators, backhoe loaders, bulldozers, skid-steer loaders, crawler loaders, motor graders, trenchers, scrapers, and dump trucks all use hydraulics to dig and move earth for construction preparation.


Hydraulics help provide the power density, controllability and reliability needed to safely process earthen materials for mining in tunnel-boring, excavation, dumping, conveying, milling, hauling and crushing operations.
