Efficient Solutions for Trailed Equipment
Trailed Equipment That LEADS The Market
Feeding the world today takes more than a green thumb, it takes technology: smart and efficient equipment that helps farmers squeeze every dollar out of a crop. The value agricultural OEMs provide lets farmers maximize resources, reclaim their time, and get more done, sun to sun.
HydraForce helps you provide the most advanced and reliable technology to the market. Fluid power is the workhorse of modern agricultural machinery, and compact efficient cartridge valves from HydraForce allow designers the most flexibility in crafting systems that deliver precise metered power to implements, drive systems, and actuators. Reliable and serviceable cartridge valve technology makes complex distributed on-board control systems possible for trailed equipment, achieving precision that would not otherwise be possible relying on tractor hydraulics.
At HydraForce our talented sales and application engineering staff offer you the expertise and creativity to build solutions that let your products stand out in the crowded marketplace. We help you accelerate your time to market, and add real value for your customers.

Self-Loading WagonsHydraForce products for loading wagons include proportional flow control, meter in/meter out, double-blocking load holding valves, proportional pressure limiting, and directional/sequencing valves. Combined into a single centralized integrated circuit, or distributed throughout the machine in function-specific manifolds, HydraForce cartridge products are there to manage and control the many functions.
• Loader control
• Knife grinding control
• Head lift/lower
• Electrohydraulic or mechanical forced steering solutions
• Axle suspension

MORE FLEXIBILITYCartridge valves offer you the most flexibility when designing control systems. HydraForce has the widest range of sizes, operating pressures, function choices, and space-saving multifunction valves.
• Independent metering of A and B ports
• Operate with open or closed centre tractor hydraulics
• Simplify piping
• More valve choices
• Combine or distribute controls
SprayersModern sprayers let you squeeze every drop of value from your solution. Precision requires accuracy, reliability, and repeatability from the vehicle hydraulics. At HydraForce, we hang our reputation on precision. With the most sophisticated flow and pressure controls available, your sprayer will perform dependably season after season. Products are available for all vehicle functions:
• Boom fold/unfold
• Precision boom height control
• Boom/axle suspension
• Electrohydraulic steering
• Solution pump control
• Filling pump control
Electrohydraulic steering control allows straight
row-tracking yet follows the tractor when turning
Piloted spool-type bypass compensator with optional manual override
Rated flow: 151 lpm (40 gpm)
Rated pressure: 345 bar (5000 psi)
MORE PERFORMANCEIn the field, performance is key. Implements that allow faster operation without sacrificing precision give you the advantage.
• Valves with Integrated load sensing
• Double-blocking load holding
• Precision pressure controls
• Industry-leading proportional flow controls
• CAN/ISOBUS ECUs and valve drivers
SeedersWith a short planting window, seeding machines are getting bigger and are expected to perform at higher speeds. This is where HydraForce gives you the advantage. Our industry leading proportional pressure controls give you the most precise control over coulter pressure to ensure consistent sowing depth in variable soils. You can expect dependable performance with HydraForce cartridge valves for all seeding machine functions:
• Distribution fan
• Vacuum pump
• Downforce control
• Depth control
• Boom float
Downforce control ensures proper planting depth in variable soils

MORE EFFICIENCYPost-compensated flow sharing allows functions to operate independently and simultaneously saving time in the field.
Valves sized precisely to the flow needs of the function save space as well as energy.
• Flow sharing
• Right-sized components
• Low internal leakage
Constant torque control provides smooth operation of bale wrapper
Balers and Baler/WrappersCombi-balers that combine rolling and wrapping save time in the field. Precise pressure controls allow optimum bale density. Torque drive smooths out pressure oscillations in the high inertial load wrapper drive. Post-compensated flow-sharing technology allows baling and wrapping to occur simultaneously with other functions to bale continuously without stopping. HydraForce cartridge valves support all functions:
• Head lift/lower
• Gathering and cutting
• Precise pressure control for optimum bale density
• Belt drive
Proportional pressure control, pilot-operated relief
Rated flow: 95 lpm (25 gpm)
Operational relief pressure range:
Range A: 7–207 bar (100–3000 psi)
Range B: 7–159 bar (100–2300 psi)
Range C: 7–117 bar (100–1700 psi)
MORE RELIABILITYPrecision farming is time-dependent. You’ve got to make hay when the sun shines, plant when the soil is ready, and harvest before the snow flies. There is no time for downtime.
You can depend on HydraForce quality to be there for you,
season after season.
