When Hurricane Sandy hit, we were there to help.

When Hurricane Sandy hit the east coast this October, Metro Hydraulic was there to help. Subway systems, bridges, tunnels and major equipment of all types were just a few of the many items damaged by this unfortunate storm. We have the experience and shop capabilities needed to repair many of the tools and equipment damaged by this storm. As a result of the hurricane, NJ Transit Rail Operations was one of the facilities hit the hardest. They had over 4 feet of salt water throughout their building complex. Thousands of commuters use mass transit on a daily basis, so their machinery was repaired on a priority basis. We were given the task of rebuilding railroad axle journal bearing pullers, and jacking equipment among many others. We also were entrusted with repairs for Public Service Electric &Gas. They had many tools that needed emergency repairs. These were some of the tools used to help restore power to Northern New Jersey. We’ve been repairing hydraulic equipment since the early 1940’s:
  • Auto equipment
    • Jacks and garage equipment.
    • Hydraulic cylinders.
    • Pumps, motors, and tools.
    • Lubrication equipment and systems
    • Snow plowing equipment repairs.
  • Transportation industry
    • Track and jacking tools used for trains and the repair of engines, cars, and trucks.
    • Ground support equipment and aircraft jacks
  • Material handling industry
    • Scissor lifts and lift tables
    • Pallet jacks
Metro Hydraulic can turn around repairs in as little as two weeks. If you have rush repair we can prioritize it and get it done even sooner. Our goal is to work with you to understand your needs, and deliver! Please take a look at the repairs page on our website, and see what we can do in more detail.

Metro Hydraulic’s Past, Present, and Future of Quality

Pow'r-Riser Lifting Jack

Metro Hydraulic has a long history of family owned and operated quality sales & service. It all began during World War II, when our founders, brothers Murray and Harry Storch repaired jacks for the Brooklyn Navy Yard. They soon went into business together, repairing automotive jacks. They decided to expand and opened a shop in Newark, NJ doing automotive equipment repair and sales. Being a family run business we still continue this history of personal service to this day. All repairs are done in-house, and we are as committed to quality as we were all those years ago. However, we’ve evolved significantly. Besides jacks, we now sell and install lubrication systems and hydraulic lifts for automotive customers. We are leaders in the construction and industrial markets, repairing, servicing, and selling hydraulic and pneumatic production tools, providing hydraulics for countless clients in the plant maintenance industry. For our construction clients, we work on hydraulics (hydraulic cylinder repair, pump and valve repair) for earth moving equipment & tractors. We also fabricate hoses while you wait. One of our major specialties is the design of jacking systems, and we are a major supplier for the bridge and infrastructure markets. Our products and services are crucial to the repair of many major New York City bridges and tunnels. But that’s not all. We repair and sell hydraulic tools for utilities, transportation, repair of aircraft ground support equipment, provide lifts for train and buses, do materials handling equipment, and more. In the past, we were responsible for designing a hydraulic lifting system used for lowering a section of the NJ Turnpike. In short, customers in so many industries have been relying on us for their complex jobs, and have come to find that the quality we provide is second to none. The vision and passion of the Storch brothers continues today, and we are proud to continue their tradition.
