Hydraulic Pump Options
Published April 8, 2020
Diamond C offers an array of hydraulic pump combinations and configurations depending on the model and options you select. Diamond C uses only KTI brand hydraulic pumps.
Power Up / Power Down
The standard hydraulic pump used on all Diamond C dump, power tilt and HYDRAULIC DOVETAIL units is a power up/power down electric over hydraulic pump. This pump is a circulatory pump constantly cycling fluid through the system and cylinder attached only retaining a smaller amount of fluid in the reservoir at any given time. It is controlled by a corded two button remote.

3-Way Power Unit
In recent years the 3-way power unit option has made a big splash into the DUMP TRAILER market. This power unit is much like the standard power up/power down pump previously mentioned, but with one added feature – the third function is a gravity down valve in the pump allowing the user to lower the bed of their dump trailer without engaging the pump motor, therefore using less energy and preserving battery life which can be crucial during a long days work.

4 Function Power Unit
Additionally, a 4 function power unit is standard when certain options are selected in conjunction, such as a dump trailer with HYDRAULIC JACKS. The user needs the ability to power two separate systems with one pump. This can be done in power up, power down/power up, power down OR power up, power down/power up, gravity down scenarios.
