The building housed all six of the city&rsquo;s refuse collection and recycling trucks. All of them were destroyed. Scott Broadwell, President of Oberlin&rsquo;s City Council, said it was fortunate that no one was injured in the incident, and leadership for the city of Oberlin acted quickly by renting two trucks to begin waste collection the following Tuesday.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/news/ohio-town-welcomes-first-hydraulic-hybrid-garbage-trucks" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/news/ohio-town-welcomes-first-hydraulic-hybrid-garbage-trucks#comments Hydraulic Pumps & Motors News Mon, 15 Dec 2014 20:02:00 +0000 29951 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Proposed Standard Addresses Bio-Friendly Hydraulic Fluids http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-fluids/proposed-standard-addresses-bio-friendly-hydraulic-fluids <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Biodegradable hydraulic fluids are being specified with increasing frequency by governmental and industrial entities.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-fluids/proposed-standard-addresses-bio-friendly-hydraulic-fluids" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-fluids/proposed-standard-addresses-bio-friendly-hydraulic-fluids#comments Hydraulic Fluids Thu, 11 Dec 2014 17:53:00 +0000 29921 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Two Sound Reasons to Use a Multigrade Hydraulic Fluid http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-fluids/two-sound-reasons-use-multigrade-hydraulic-fluid <div class="field-deck"> Higher system efficiency presents a strong argument for using multigrade hydraulic fluids, but their potential for improved machine productivity can have an even greater impact on your bottom line. </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Higher system efficiency presents a strong argument for using multigrade hydraulic fluids, but their potential for improved machine productivity can have an even greater impact on your bottom line.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-fluids/two-sound-reasons-use-multigrade-hydraulic-fluid" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-fluids/two-sound-reasons-use-multigrade-hydraulic-fluid#comments Hydraulic Fluids Tue, 09 Dec 2014 16:56:00 +0000 29891 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com A Look at Hydraulic Hose Failures http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/blog/look-hydraulic-hose-failures <div class="node-body blog-body"><p>We regularly look at what types of articles draw the most visitors on our websites.
