Series 10 Steering Control Unit

Series 10 Steering Control UnitThe ultimate Steering Control Unit for mid-range flow applications, the Series 10 Steering Control Unit facilitates hydraulic fluid flow like no other unit on the market. Its high 275 bar (4,000 psi) pressure rating and widewalled sleeve that’s 40% thicker than industry standard designs allows the Series 10 Steering Control Unit to accommodate smaller, cost-saving cylinders. In addition, operators appreciate its included Eaton technologies like Q-Amp®, Wide Angle, VersaSteer and Two-Speed Steering that optimize control.
