About Hydraulic Hand Pumps
Also known as a manual hydraulic pump, a hydraulic hand pump delivers hydraulic fluid under pressure powered by manual human effort. The advantage these pumps have over electric hydraulic pumps is that they do not need electricity, compressed air or hydrostatic flow for their power. They can be used almost anywhere, as long as someone can pump the handle. Also, the hand operation gives users of this type of pump a hands-on, precise feel when loading and testing machinery components, or lifting heavy machinery.
