HydraBoost hydraulic systems are built to add hydraulic power to tractors. Yet not all tractors will work with our HydraBoost system. What does your tractor need to run a HydraBoost?
1. Tractors without a Power Take-Off (or PTO) shaft
The HydraBoost is a PTO-driven system. If your tractor does not have a PTO shaft, the HydraBoost cannot connect to your tractor.
2. Horsepower required
Many small tractors do not have the horsepower to run a HydraBoost. To run a HydraBoost, a tractor must have at least 50+ horsepower. Smaller HydraBoost units need less horsepower than larger HydraBoost units.
Keep in mind that the more horsepower needed to run a HydraBoost, the less horsepower there is to run the tractor’s other functions. Therefore, putting a high-powered HydraBoost on a low-powered tractor may not work.
Examples of small tractors that cannot run a HydraBoost:
How can I add hydraulics to a tractor without a PTO or enough horsepower?
Unfortunately, there isn’t an alternative on the market currently. If your tractor is too small for a HydraBoost, or if it doesn’t have a PTO, you may want to look into getting a new tractor with a higher hydraulic capacity.
