WHO’S the boss?

When it comes to hydraulics, the answer is clearly BOSS Hydraulics.

The company strives to maintain the highest quality standards for

its products and provide the best technical customer service offering in the market.

That’s why it’s been successful in delivering hydraulic solutions to the Australian and New Zealand market for more than 35 years.

Part of the PT Hydraulics team, BOSS is also used widely in the emergency services and rescue industry, with its lifesaving equipment used widely, including the Lukas brand ‘Jaws of Life’.


With the BOSS range, quality is assured, and that’s why it offers a lifetime warranty on so many of its products.

According to PT Hydraulics Industrial Division director Matt Lloyd, BOSS is here to help clients achieve success.

“As an Australian company, with regional sales managers covering all corners of Australia and New Zealand, our team is 100pc focused on making it easy for customers to do business with us – whether it’s providing technical advice and training to help their team and customers, or getting them the right product, at the right price, where they need it and when they need it,” he said.

“Our team of hydraulic design and fabrication experts also specialise in building custom solutions, to meet the specific and unique needs of our clients.

“So we can build tailor-made equipment that is locally designed and assembled, right here at our Mt Waverley Headquarters in Victoria.

“With BOSS, you can be sure that you’ll get exactly what you need to get the job done, at a good honest price. That’s our promise to you.”

The high-pressure BOSS BLUE Range is ideal for mining applications and provides quality at a great price.

With a range of high force products including general workshop tooling, cylinders, high tonnage jacks and synchronised lifting systems, the company provides a lifetime guarantee across the range to ensure the reliability and durability of the products.

“Built for rugged industrial and commercial applications, all BOSS cylinders meet worldwide safety standards,” Mr Lloyd said.

“The stop rings, bronze coated pistons and heavy-duty materials provide durable and dependable operation in harsh operating environments.

“The BOSS spring return range of cylinders use a heavy-duty, wound steel-plated spring, to provide faster retraction and hold tension, whilst the threaded collars and internal piston threads are built to withstand the full load of the cylinder.

“The in-built rod wiper cleans the rod surface during retraction, which protects the inner cylinder assembly from dirt, moisture and other contaminants.”

Finally, single-acting steel cylinders have a nitrided finish for internal rust protection and aluminium cylinders are fully anodised.

BOSS Hydraulics also offers a wide range of hand pumps from heavy duty  and large tank model to aluminium, portable units and more.

The range of electric pumps comes in single and double acting models which have a two-speed design, able to withstand a maximum working pressure of 10,000 psi/700 bar.
