Wachs Utility HPU-18 18HP Hydraulic Power Unit (HPU) is a CE Compliant, gas engine driven hydraulic unit cart mounted. Powered by an 18 HP (13.25 kW) Briggs & Stratton V-Twin engine with electric start, it is designed to power both HTMA Class I & II tools. A selector valve on the control panel sets the pump to deliver either 8 GPM (30 LPM) @ 2,000 PSI (140 bar) or 5 GPM (20 LPM) @ 2,000 PSI (140bar).

Wachs portable hydraulic power units are the ideal choice for smooth, reliable hydraulic power, in the shop or in the field. Hydraulic power units (HPUs) pack more power in less space than any other power source, and because the supply is completely sealed they’re the best choice for partial immersion, sandy, dusty and other difficult environments.
