Known for their quality and performance, these highly cost-effective, industry leading products are widely used by original equipment manufacturers in a broad range of industrial and consumer vehicles and equipment.
For the past 45 years, the Eaton's Char-Lynn name has been recognized as the industry leader in low-speed, high-torque (LSHT) hydraulic motor technology. Named after one of the pioneers in the hydraulic industry, the late Lynn Charlson, the hydraulic motors developed by Lynn Charlson & his team use what is termed as the Orbit Principle. This principle has given the Char-Lynn motors their reliable high power density, modularity & economic design. A wide variety of displacements are available.
