Home of Hydra Set® Precision Load Positioning Systems
The more valuable your load, the more you need the Hydra Set.
Since 1965, thousands of Hydra Set Precision Load Positioners have been utilized in a wide range of industries and rugged environments worldwide.
Installed between the crane (or hoist) and the load, Hydra Set is a valuable positioning device that enables the operator to mate and de-mate loads from ½ ton (453.6 kg) to 300 tons (272,000 kg) to within 0.001 inch (0.025mm).
The Hydra Set eliminates up and down oscillations that can result in damage to the load and support fixtures, or worse, place workers at risk.
