Steering Rotary Vane Actuator

This Micromatic HS 6 rotary vane hydraulic actuator is used to steer a machine that is used to roll up the artificial turf from an ice hockey stadium.  Originally designed by Zamboni, the machine rolls up the turf outside the main playing surface for football and soccer arenas.  The current manufacturers of this equipment have replaced the old steering linkage with the Micromatic hydraulic vane rotary actuator.  Now the unit is very responsive and turns on a dime.
