Hydraulic Struts for Rent

Hydraulic Struts

Hydraulic Struts for wide-span excavations

A hydraulic strut is consist of a base hydraulic ram unit on one end that is coupled with bolt-on modular extension pieces to achieve the required span. Primary advantages of the system include rapid installation capabilities and minimal labor efforts needed when comparing to traditional fabricated steel shoring systems.  These modular format hydraulic struts combine the compressive strength of steel tube with the convenience of hydraulic actuation for length adjustment and pre-loading potential. Swivel end bearing plates and various other end connections allow for limitless strutting configurations within an excavation, with or without waler beams.


  • Larger hydraulic struts are capable of achieving unsupported spans of 147’ depending on loading conditions.
  • Struts are able to withstand working loads of up to 750 tons
  • Swivel end bearing plates provide a zero moment end connection and can articulate laterally up to 45° for knee brace and raking applications
  • Provides a little over 3’ of double acting hydraulic adjustment with integral lock-off valve for simple zero fluid loss installation and removal techniques.
