CHARLOTTE, N.C. – HAWE Hydraulics, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of sophisticated hydraulic components and controls for the mobile, industrial, and renewable energy markets.

Dakar 2014, is a legendary sporting event that challenges drivers‘ endurance, racing skills and strategic navigational competencies. This intense off-road race is made up of two marathon stages that stretch across miles of South America’s desertous terrain. Drivers take great precautions ensuring their vehicles can withstand the wear and tear of the sand dunes and off-road courses. For this reason HAWE Hydraulics took part in servicing the dual hydraulically mounted jacks for the Chevy Colorado Z71 Rally Raid prototype vehicles.

HAWE’s reputation for long-lasting, durable products make them a perfcect match for this project. SG 1L – AKS valves were used for the racing vehicles. HAWE’s SG Directional Spool Valves allow up to 400 bar, 100 lpm and serves to control the oil flow and directional movements of the jacks. Since the valve system is entirely made up of steel the housing unit is resistant to pressure surges and leakages. This eliminates the chance of hairline cracks or other damages caused by the harsh desert conditions.
