Hydraulic Pump

    I have a under tailgate spreader for a 2 ton dump truck. The truck has an Allison automatic transmission. It does not have central hydraulics. Does anyone know someone who makes a pump that runs off a small gas powered engine like an 8hp or something like that. Or does anyone have any ideas on building one?

    All input appreciated.

    You might use a pto driven tractor unit.

    Are you opposed to a belt driven pump under the hood?

    Hydraulic Power Unit

    Kentucky plow try Brave industries.
    They have a nice little unit that may work for you, plus you could use it to run a log splitter or any other small hydraulic device.

    Man, I knew I should have patented that idea years ago!!

    A nice little power unit, with a hydro tank, packaged like a generator, that could be mounted on various trucks in a fleet.

    I could be rich right now.... payup

    A guy by the name of John Geer (who apparently is no longer a member here) had a setup like this to run his front and rear plows. He had a 13hp Honda gas engine and a 6gpm 2100psi pump packed nicely in a (ventilated) DeeZee diamond plate toolbox that sat on the back of his truck. You can see a few pictures in this thread (a ways down the page).
