Miller Electric is introducing the EnPak Hydraulic Tool Control (HTC), a new advancement with the EnPak Mechanic Series that allows simultaneous use of a mechanics truck’s hydraulic crane and 5- or 8-gallon-per-minute (gpm) hydraulic tools without needing to switch between crane and circuit controls. The HTC provides a common hydraulic power distribution location for easy plumbing to tools and the crane circuit, and provides flow rates to accommodate 5, 8 or 10 gpm hydraulic tools, or two 5 gpm tools, making it easy to switch between different flow rates and equipment. The HTC requires no complicated tooling and allows for easy integration into EnPak and the mechanics truck, including a heat exchanger, the tool control and the power cable.
“The new EnPak HTC will provide significant benefits to truck integrators and end users alike,” says Chris Wierschke, product manager, Miller Electric. “For integrators, the HTC saves considerable installation time, and provides a clean and compact design that allows for advanced functionality without adding countless fittings, relief valves and new hosing. Field crews will be able to improve their productivity by operating the crane and auxiliary tools at once off the same hydraulic pump without any complicated controls or equipment.”
As with EnPak’s generator and air compressor, the HTC also matches with features such as Auto Start/Stop and Miller’s exclusive EnPower technology to ensure the engine outputs only as much rpm as is needed to perform the job at hand, saving fuel and engine wear while helping to reduce noise on site. There is also no need to add special signal controls to bring EnPak up to speed during hydraulic tool use as is sometimes required with other systems.
