Title: APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR ACTUATING A HYDRAULIC CYLINDER
Abstract:
An apparatus for actuating a hydraulic cylinder comprising feed and return hydraulic hoses, extend and retract hoses, a hydraulic pump, a directional valve and control means. The feed and return hydraulic hoses are each removeabley connected to, and in fluid communication with, hydraulic fluid supply means. The extend and retract hydraulic hoses are each removeably connected to, and in fluid communication with, respective extend and retract ports of the hydraulic cylinder of the machine. The directional valve is configured to direct flow of hydraulic fluid from the feed hose to either one of the return hose, the extend hose or the retract hose, and the control means is for operating the hydraulic pump and directional valve so that the apparatus enables the hydraulic cylinder of the machine to be extended or retracted using the control means.
