For animal keepers in large zoos, support from machines is indispensable for getting their everyday work finished. The solution that also doesn’t disturb the animals: electrically driven farm loaders such as the 1160 eHoftrac® from Weidemann. With no diesel engine, it purrs around the cages but still lifts heavy loads with ease.

Silence PLUS pump.
Silence PLUS pump.

The external gear pump SILENCE PLUS from Bosch Rexroth makes a decisive contribution to this. It generates the pressure for the work hydraulics extremely quietly. In addition, its working noise is within a frequency range that is pleasant for animals and people. This means that no polar bear will be disturbed while the machine is in use. And outside of zoos, Rexroth pumps reduce noise emissions in numerous applications, such as buses and tractors, garbage compactors in residential areas or in machines and systems in factories.
