About Unwin Hydraulic Engineering

The Unwin Engineering company was founded in 1979 by a Father and son team - Ken and Peter Unwin. Its principal purpose was to build drilling rigs, drop-hammer rigs and a large range of diesel powered hydraulic power packs. The company has over 30 years of experience to call on, and has the technical abilities to design and manufacture all types of hydraulically powered machinery. To more accurately reflect this the company name was changed in 1997 to Unwin Hydraulic Engineering.

The company is very well known in the UK for the manufacture of the Mini and Super Kitten rigs which are among the most compact and powerful drilling rigs on the market. These rugged drilling rigs have gained a superb reputation for trouble free service in the most arduous conditions. Information on these is available on request.

Hydraulic Spares

We are now one of the largest hydraulic component stockist’s in the UK .We are distributors for Parker PGM/P motors and pumps( formerly known as Commercial Hydraulics), we are also distributors for David Brown Hydraulics which were formerly known as Hamworthy Hydraulics. Our product knowledge and technical backup on these products is needless to say second to none and we can offer complete workshop service, repair, build and test facilities. It is not uncommon for a customer to request a purpose built pump or motor and have it machined, assembled, tested and dispatched or collected that same day.

We can do the same for you!

Just specify the displacement, shaft, mounting flange, port sizes and any other pertinent details and we will offer a tailored solution just for you...

Our principal line of business is the supply of gear and piston pumps, motors, flow dividers and spares, but we stock a wide spectrum of hydraulic equipment - pumps, motors, flow dividers, valves, filters, air blast oil coolers, hydraulic hose, couplings and adaptors.
