Hagglund Introduces New Hydraulic Motor

—Literature Available The Marathon from AB Hagglund & Soner is a new low-speed, high-torque hydraulic motor, originally intended for highly demanding industrial applications, which is considered particularly suitable for many heavy-duty situations in the marine and offshore fields, especially where continuous running is required.

The new motor is the result of a development project by the Swedish company, which is already well known in the marine and offshore industries for cranes, brakes, and the Viking range of hydraulic drives.

The Marathon project originated in a market survey that confirmed that many users of heavy-duty continuous drives were attracted by the durability, low-maintenance costs, and compactness, along with out standing torque and control characteristics that are among the advantages of low-speed, high-torque motors.

But they needed units with higher torque capacities than those then available; the Marathon satisfies this need.
