Hydraulic motors are found in any application requiring rotational force, also referred to as torque. A hydraulic engine converts hydrostatic energy into mechanical energy by pressing vanes, gears or pistons mounted on a crankshaft.

Hydraulic motors are used for many applications now such as for example winches and crane drives, wheel motors for military vehicles, self-driven cranes, excavators, conveyor and feeder drives, cooling fan drives, mixer and agitator drives, roll mills, drum drives for digesters, trommels and kilns, shredders, drilling rigs, trench

Hydraulic motors are rotary actuators that convert hydraulic, or fluid energy into mechanical power. They work in tandem with a hydraulic pump, which converts mechanical power into liquid, or hydraulic power. … Fixed-displacement motors drive a load at a constant speed while a constant input flow is provided.
