Meta Description: Are hydraulic motors better than the mechanic motor? Let’s find out.


To oversimplify it, hydraulic motors allow for essentially full variability on speed or power delivered by varying pressure in the system or some other means. This feature also means that if the motor is taxed heavily it can provide far more torque by allowing it to speed output down without having to slow input speed effectively gearing down the input and output ratio, meaning exponentially more torque depending on the design versus a direct drive (mechanical) system at the expense of speed. Even multiple geared systems are little comparison to hydraulic systems for lower speed applications in terms of usable torque. Automatic transmissions do this type of connection via a torque converter, when you press the throttle the pressure builds until it transfers enough power to move the vehicle.


This can multiply the torque high enough to break traction even if the engine isn’t remarkably powerful. Hydraulic systems do have one major disadvantage which is friction. They have a lot of losses due to heat and friction and are not as efficient as direct-drive systems. That’s why for many years manual transmissions were always more efficient than automatics, today’s automatics have a small clutch that engages in higher gears instead of using the torque converter for fuel efficiency.


The riding lawn mowers used transmissions many years ago with a few speeds but they were either unreliable or conversely very reliable but many times more expensive and not enough speeds for the application most of the time requiring a more powerful engine further pushing up the cost.

Called a manual or selectable manual It is large and kind of steep, the cone-shaped pulley on the transmission and will vary its size by widening or narrowing up or down to change the pully ratio of the belt by forcing the belt to sit further or away from the center changing the effective gear ratio. The main advantage is you can multiply the torque of the engine to very high amounts for short periods with a limit built into the system allowing better control and usability. Ultimately these don’t truly allow more torque to reach the ground than the variable pully models but that’s just a built-in safety limit that helps prevent popping wheelies and flipping backward injuring the driver. They are more than capable of doing that if that safety overpressure limiter is removed, that is if it can even be removed/bypassed.


Lots of heavy equipment such as pretty much all digging equipment use hydraulic for everything since it can multiply torque from the already high torque diesel motor to move the various parts and lift and push very heavy weights or apply lots of force. The main disadvantages are efficiency and speed. Speed isn’t an issue with these most of the time, although it can be designed to work in the same location and not move around much or is better off due to its size to not move quickly, and the efficiency penalty is just part of doing business for equipment like this. Someone who is more familiar with this type of equipment is better suited to answer that part.
