Engineers have done some amazing things with off-highway and on-highway hydraulic systems. See our digital editon or to to our website and see the Trencher article. We have been reporting for years about the marvels of off-highway applications.
With the advent of hydraulic hybrids and other power assist programs, on-highway hydraulics have become a very hot item. I had the privelige of a demo of a work truck with several hydraulic systems and I was just amazed at what the driver can now do with hydraulics.
We will be reporting more about these systems in the pages of H&P.
