A hydraulic motor is a mechanical actuator that converts hydraulic pressure and flow into rotational torque. While hydraulic motors look nearly identical to their counterpart (the pump) they are different as they are generally bi-directional, meaning they can be driven in either direction. Motors come in a wide variety of types: gear, vane, and piston being the primary types. Hydraulic Controls Inc stocks hydraulic motors locally. Please contact your local branch with questions.
