The Requirements for Future-Proof Forestry and Agricultural Machinery HYDAC offers you systems perfectly tailored to your requirements

Conservation of Resources

Whether it's climate change, a lack of resources or inflation – conservation of resources is at the forefront of agricultural technology as well as forestry technology. Because company environmental protection measures don't just comply with directives and regulations. They also lead to lower costs. Whether it's agile steering systems, robust attachment control or precise machine controls – rely on our clever HYDAC solutions to conserve your resources.

Precision Farming

Agriculture 4.0: sophisticated operating functions increase yields and ensure that pesticides are used sparingly. For this, you can rely on our innovations from the sensor, open loop control technology, closed loop control technology and software industries. Our system solutions enable targeted and needs-based management of your fields and farmland.

Energy Efficiency

The world's population is increasing and with it the demand for resources. Because while yields need to rise, emissions need to fall – don't choose between sustainability and productivity: discover your energy-efficiency potential with HYDAC. We offer you innovative components and systems that reduce your CO2 emissions without having to compromise on performance. Get advice from our experts now.

HYDAC Electronic Load-Sensing

Use agricultural machinery and attachments flexibly while accessing the full hydraulic power: where different functions require different pressures and oil quantities, our electronic load-sensing solution optimally adapts to your needs. With the load-pressure independent electronic system, you can increase your machine's user comfort as well as the efficiency.


The driving speed, operating speed and transport load are constantly increasing with the rising requirements placed on forestry and agricultural machines. What's especially important here? Increased safety and greater comfort. We're able to offer you a solution for precisely this purpose, adapted to your challenges and requirements:  we match system components together in the best possible way and develop your custom suspension. We're happy to advise you on what options you have for your specific requirements and support you with the implementation.

HYDAC Axle Suspension

The optimum axle suspension can only be implemented with the machine in mind. Because front-axle, rear-axle or full suspension may be the best choice, depending on the vehicle type. Over 50 years of experience enables our experts to optimally adapt our systems to your operating conditions. With the help of tried-and-tested HYDAC components, we're able to implement tailor-made axle suspensions.

HYDAC Cab Suspension

Take the strain off the machine operator on long working days and reduce vibration loads in the vehicle cab. Our compact, hydropneumatic cab suspension increases driving comfort and ensures safe machine operation. Damping forces can be adjusted independently. Discover the comfortable solution.

HYDAC Boom Suspension

HYDAC boom suspension leads to higher handling performance and more stable steering behaviour: our boom suspensions in a wide range of sizes and designs efficiently reduce pitching vibrations. Thanks to our many years of expertise, we're able to develop your tailor-made system, optimally adjusted to your machine. Reduce wear and downtimes now – contact us.

Electro-Hydraulic Additional Steering ADSteer

Especially manoeuvrable, low wear, precise and gentle on the ground - agricultural machines need to meet high standards. A factor that presents electro-hydraulic steering systems in trailers and machines with major challenges. Increase the flexibility of your vehicle fleet with ADSteer Profi - the standalone subsystem for electro-hydraulic additional steering which calculates the set angle of the steer axles in a non-contact manner.
