Power packed

The PP 518 is a highly portable, self-contained power pack. It creates optimum power with precise flow due to the unique hydrostatic pump system, which does not use engine rpms to regulate flow. This provides more consistent and accurate flow for any hydraulic tool requiring 5, 8, or 10 gpm flow at 2,000 psi.

The automatic power-on-demand saves fuel and adjusts to different tools and hose lengths, ensuring you are always operating at optimal power. The power-on-demand feature can be switched off for constant power when needed.

Control Box
All controls and hose attachments for the unit are located on the front of the machine, improving operator efficiency. The sound is also controlled due to the insulated side panels and large volume muffler. These two features significantly reduce noise and add protection to the power pack.

Transporting

The PP 518 is compact and easy to transport. The handle and wheels make it easy to move its 298 lbs to, from and around a job site.

The PP 518 is meant to be used with Husqvarna hydraulic equipment such as the WS 325 wall saw, DM 406 H drill motor, K 3600 MK power cutter or K 2500 power cutter. It is also ideal for other hydraulic tools such as diamond chain saws and other breakers, tampers, drivers, chippers, drills, earth augers and more.
