Use For Hydraulics That You Might Not Be Familiar With

Hydraulics_UsesHere at Acadiana Hydraulics, we have the type of customers you’d expect to get in our field: contractors, construction workers, and those involved in earthmoving and demolition work.

But there are thousands of uses for hydraulic tools that you might not be familiar with. Here are just a few of the more interesting ones we’ve found.

Hydraulic Picnic Benches - At first, you might have no idea how to imagine such a thing. But hydraulic picnic benches have been designed to lie flat against the ground when not in use and the put up to use as a park bench at other times. In cities where space is at a premium, it’s important to be able to get the bench out of the way at standing-room-only events. Check them out right here.

Amusement Park Rides - If you’re familiar with hydraulics, you’ve probably noticed them at use on amusement park rides. The most obvious hydraulics are the brakes that stop a roller coaster so that passengers can get on and off, since you can hear them working and actually see them working as your wait next in line. Less obvious are the many hydraulic pumps found on a Ferris Wheel.

Theater Stages - Whether you’re into opera or heavy metal, theater presentations are getting more and more complex. Many times the stage will move, rising or lowering to reveal the next act or performer. That’s hydraulic pumps in action.


You might use hydraulic tools every day but never realize just how much we’re surrounded by them. When your tools are in need of hydraulic repair, be sure to bring them into Acadiana Hydraulics.
