Hydraulic Motors
Recognized as a leader in low-speed, high-torque hydraulic motor technology, Char-Lynn motors are extremely reliable, compact, and have tremendous power density.

The Char-Lynn motor range consists of three major types based on the type of valving used to distribute fluid.

  • Spool Valve

Steering Control Units
Char-Lynn steering control units are fully fluid linked, which means there is no mechanical connection between steering unit, the pump, and the steering cylinders.
