Hydraulic leverage trade-off

Here’s another Flint Hydraulics Tech Tip: Just as we experience a tradeoff of force vs. distance in mechanical leverage, so too with hydraulic leverage. A small force on a small piston can balance a higher force on a larger piston; however, though force is multiplied, distance (speed) is sacrificed. Need help troubleshooting your system?
