Why do Powrtran products use electromechanical actuators instead of hydraulics?

While hydraulic units offer a lot of strength and lifting power, they can also require a lot of maintenance. Bleed-down, leaks, broken hoses, etc are all things that can cause down-time. We know how precious your time on the water is. That’s why we engineered our electromechanical actuators to be as strong as the hydraulic systems out there but with minimal maintenance required to keep them running for years.

I have an older Powrtran unit, are the new replacement parts compatible?

In most cases, yes. Although our commitment to innovation and improvement have led us to make some changes over the years, we did our best to make the new components compatible with old systems. That being said, its best to give us a call and speak with the technical staff to make sure.
