One of Sydney's leading mobile hydraulic hose services is enjoying the flexibility and versatility of its latest Hino 300 Series light-duty truck.

Family-owned and operated for 15 years, City Hydraulics is a Ryco 247 distributor and specialises in on-site hydraulic hose fabrication, diagnostics and maintenance.

City Hydraulics recently added a Hino 300 Series 616 to its fleet - its sixth Hino truck since purchasing its first in 2004.

City Hydraulics owner and operator Grant Wheatley praised the company's new Hino 300 Series 616 as a versatile metropolitan workhorse.

"The Hino trucks have been exceptional in helping us get our workshop out to wherever our customers happen to be," Mr Wheatley said.

"The compact size and agile handling gives us great accessibility to inner-city customers, while still retaining the robust operation that is expected of a truck."

Originally operating with Toyota HiAce vans, the company quickly outgrew the limited capacity of a van.

The newly delivered Hino 300 Series features a custom Pantech mobile workshop built by Pacific Bodyworks, including an industry-leading two-inch Swage press tool that allows larger hydraulics units to be fabricated on site.

"The majority of our customer base are in the construction and forklift industries, but recently we were contracted by the Royal Australian Navy to carry out hydraulic servicing to a ship.

"The flexibility that the mobile workshop allows is a crucial and unique characteristic of our business," Mr Wheatley said.

City Hydraulics has outlets in Mascot and Wetherill Park, both providing a full suite of industrial supplies for all hydraulic applications and a quick response service available 24 hours, seven days a week.

Established in 1946, Ryco 247 is the mobile service division of Ryco Hydraulics, Australia's leading manufacturer of hydraulic hoses and fittings.
