Our History

As the name suggests, Adelaide Hydraulics started manufacturing hydraulic cylinders during the late 1960’s and it wasn’t long before the need for an aftermarket quality manufacturer of loader attachments became increasingly evident.

In 1973, Adelaide Hydraulics launched its new loader attachment division and became one of the first pioneers in the local manufacture of multi-purpose buckets. To this date, Adelaide Hydraulics’ Flagship product – the 4 in 1 bucket is still recognised as one of Australia’s best.

By working alongside and supporting the leading heavy machinery suppliers, Adelaide Hydraulics has been able to grow its product range and speciality to now supply a vast range of custom built attachments to local, national and international end users.
