The successful introduction of these hydraulic outboard units has allowed fishermen to switch from large slow inboard powered vessels to more economical , smaller, faster outboard powered vessels.
Most of these new fast New Zealand cray boats have the Harbapro outboard hydraulic unit fitted to their outboard engines where reliability and a long service life is the basic requirement.
The HARBAPRO Hydraulic kit is available to suit most application and is custom designed to fit most 4 stroke models from 70 -350 Hp in the Yamaha and Mercury Verado range. The quiet, reliable and efficient hydraulic power pack will outlast the life of the outboard engine and can be transferred to the next engine.
This power pack features unique engineering that ensures that there are no side load forces generated on the engine bearings. Some power units have accumulated over 15 000 hrs of use having been transferred from one outboard engine to another etc.
The high quality vane pumps used have proved extremely reliable and can withstand accidental engagement at full revs. They have provided long and trouble free service life on all installations and there is a model for just about every application.
Once installed, with the engine running, a simple flick of the switch on the dash engages the pump and hydraulic oil pressure is supplied to the equipment.
We have supplied these outboard power units for use on oyster barges, aquaculture support vessels, cray boats and line fishing vessels.
We can supply a custom hydraulic pump unit to fit just about every application from high pressure low volume requirements of sea crane equipment to net handling and net reels to longline haulers and everything in between.
