Hmm, now I've just recently (well still have to pick it up) had mine refurbished (seals began to give up) it'd be nice if it was motorised.

Turns out I picked up an absolute steal, cylinder is rated to 700 bar (>10,000 psi) and if I remember the dimensions correctly its actually closer to 100 tonnes :blink: not 30. Not sure what the frame is capable of surviving. Enerpac still make the cylinders (for circa £3k :ph34r:).

[edit]Paid £150 for it[/edit]

There's something quite satisfying watching the square tube get neatly folded up!

Very good
