MILWAUKEE, Wis. — Milwaukee Tool has unveiled its M18 Brushless Single Acting 60in3 10,000psi hydraulic pump to help eliminate the strenuous function of a manual hand pump.
A direct replacement for manual hand pumps, the single-acting hydraulic pump pushes fluid to the connected hydraulic cylinder or tool to lift, push, pull, punch, cut, split or spread materials.
The hydraulic pump offers improved efficiency on the job, whether lifting equipment to perform maintenance, wedging material or equipment apart to gain clearance, or splitting nuts to replace a flange, the company said.
The battery-powered hydraulic pump delivers up to 2.5X faster application speeds than hand pumps, the company claims, and reduces fatigue caused by the repetitive motion of manually pumping at increasingly higher pressure.
The pump features 60in3 of usable oil to extend a variety of different tonnage and stroke length cylinders to full stroke and is compatible with existing 10,000psi single-acting-rated hydraulic hoses, cylinders and tools.
A manual valve provides precise control when releasing pressure and a bladder window allows users to gauge the fluid level. When paired with an M18 Redlithium XC5.0 battery pack, the hydraulic pump can complete up to 20 lifts, 100 splits or 175 spreads on a single charge, the company said.
The pump will be available in April for $1,500 and carries a three-year warranty.
The kit includes a M18 Brushless Single Acting 60in3 10,000psi hydraulic pump, a M18 Redlithium XC5.0 battery pack, M18 and M12 multi-voltage charger, a shoulder strap, and a 3/8-inch NPTF Female Quick Connect Cone Poppet Coupler.
