New hydraulic farm shop doors require less maintenance

New hydraulic farm shop doors require less maintenance

These new shop doors can be retrofitted to replace any type of old door. The design allows for less maintenance.

As chores on the farm have shifted to maintenance projects in the shop, Hydroswing has announced its latest offerings in hydraulic farm shop doors.  

The new Hydroswing doors allow for maximum opening width while reducing costs. The company says the doors use 50-70% fewer moving parts than bifold, section or roller doors; which equates to less frequent maintenance. The Hydroswing can also be easily retrofitted to replace any kind of existing shop doors. And the Hydroswing can be manufactured in any size as large as 40 ft. tall to 150 ft. wide.

The doors are operated by two dual acting hydraulic rams powered by a single or three-phase motor and pump. The company says the Hydrowswing is impossible to operate without access to the control unit, making it secure. And it can be operated during a power outage by using a generator.

Pricing starts at $10,999.00 for agricultural shop doors between the 40 ft. by 10 ft. size and up to the 45 ft. by 16 ft. size. The price includes standards to meet a 90 mph wind code.
