Be the BOSS

Heavy vehicle operators specify BOSS Hydraulics’ BOSS Blue high force tools and equipment rated over 350 BAR as well as the BOSS Black range of fluid power products rated up to 350 BAR for a variety of transport-related applications.

Every day, the team at BOSS Hydraulics strive to maintain the highest product quality standards and provide superior technical customer service which is why they have been successful in delivering hydraulic solutions to the Australian and New Zealand market for over 35 years.

As part of the PT Hydraulics team, manufacturers and heavy vehicle operators depend on BOSS for transport industry solutions – just like their customers in the emergency services and rescue industry that depend on lifesaving hydraulic equipment including the Lukas brand ‘Jaws of Life’, and with most products in the BOSS range carrying a lifetime warranty.

Among the most popular products supplied to the transport industry, the BOSS black range of ready made or custom built DC/AC hydraulic power packs is fully customisable with over 20 different circuit options available and both 12/24v DC and 240/415v AC varieties. High powered fan options cool the DC Motor to ensure longevity, while ‘plug and play’ remote pendants provide control at your fingertips, with manual override as a standard feature on all single-acting packs.

The BOSS range of agricultural cylinders are also widely used within the transport industry. This range of AG cylinders are 100 per cent pressure tested and designed with dual ported UN-O-ring threads. This innovation provides two ports at the rod end and two ports at the rear clevis end of the cylinder to suit a wider variety of applications. All BOSS black cylinder piston rods are hard chrome plated, the barrel is CDSM honed and the rod gland is manufactured from ASTM A536 ductile iron for durable and reliable functionality.

Within the transport industry, hydraulic devices are often used to lift heavy loads and equipment and for optimal safety of personnel working with or near lifted objects, physical and static supports such as cribbing, should also be used to maintain load support. BOSS Hydraulics is proud to be the preferred Australasian partner of Turtle Plastics, a leading global manufacturer of high density plastic cribbing.

Many work sites have now recognised the superior safety characteristics of plastic cribbing and have now banned the use of wooden cribbing. In the past, wooden blocks were often used to provide support to heavy loads, however, advances in substrate technology have led to the development of specially designed, high tensile plastic cribbing blocks that afford several advantages over traditional materials.

Benefits of the BOSS Cribbing range:

  • Uniform shape, size, weight & strength throughout the product.
  • Weight rating listed on each piece of equipment.
  • Colour coded for ease of identifying weight rating.
  • No natural weak points, knots, cracks, splits or splinters.
  • Lightweight and easy to manually handle or manoeuvre into position.
  • Zero water absorbency.
  • Free from paint or finishes.
  • Resistant to chemical corrosion.
  • 100 per cent recyclable and made from 100 per cent recycled material.
