I was in JHB today getting hydraulic parts for one of my high ups . The owner who over the years has become a friend said he wanted to show me the hydraulic pump that he is importing for the land cruiser and land rover.

Something like this makes a lot of sense for my type of work. I use a lot of hydraulic machinery and when power packs fail it could be very handy. This got me thinking why would one put a hydraulic pump on a land cruiser other for a very strong winch.

surely there are other applications I just cannot think of any other. I would like to hear if anybody else has any other application he might use it for.

I wonder what strain it would put on the gear box. Also a reservoir for oil and pipes etc. .Weight as well as oil leaks would become a problem. it would open doors with regard to cylinder work.

I just find it an intresting concept.
