  • Helac rotary actuator installed.

    I have the rotary actuator installed in the sheep handler. It works perfect in this application. I used an over center counterbalance valve to make things move evenly.

    Because I burned up the electric motor and haven't got a replacement yet I connected the sheep handler to my excavator's aux. hydraulics. It is too much flow even at idle but it worked.

    This video shows mostly how the telescoping arms move the crate to and from the table. Getting every thing to move in the right sequence was a fun project. It is not perfect yet but we are getting there.
