Hydraulic Pump Repair Services
Regardless of the complexity or specific design of your hydraulic system, one component is almost always essential: the hydraulic pump.
Unfortunately, due to its critical nature, hydraulic pumps are also the part of a system most likely to cause an overall failure; they’re the most subject to wear and tear and can be the cause of both gradual and sudden system shutdown.

Common Hydraulic Pump Problems
Pump trouble can be sudden, but it can also be indicated by several common symptoms. Below are some of the most common signs of a struggling pump in hydraulic systems.
- Increased system heat or overheating
- Increased operating noise
- Difficulty or inability to develop appropriate output
- Erratic cylinder operation
- Decreased cylinder speed
- Decreased hydraulic motor speed
- Overall system failure
- Milky oil appearance
Many of the problems above can be indicative of an air leak, water leak, or oil leak in the pump. Pump cavitation, or the inability of the pump to draw its full charge of oil, can also cause several of these symptoms.
