The Hydraulic power pack is made up of high-pressure hot water pumps, pressure washers, power units, fluid reservoirs, an insulating material, a valve, and spark plugs. The entire system is housed within an engine case that has been built by utilizing the most efficient design possible. This means that the unit is built to last! The pump is connected to the motor by a transfer case that has been built using minimal materials. It is a very compact design that will also work in extreme cold weather conditions.

A typical mobile hydraulic power pack system will consist of approximately twenty-five hydraulic fluid dispensers that are installed in various locations throughout the work area. These units can be positioned in a wide variety of ways including on-site or off-site. There are also systems that can be remotely operated by a computer system. In order to prevent damage to machinery or the work area, these power packs should always be located at the highest feasible level. The valves needed to operate the systems are also usually located near the ground to prevent ground flammability issues.
