Hercules is the core Aftermarket business based in Louisville, Kentucky and provides a next day delivery service throughout the US for seals and seal kits used in the repair of hydraulic cylinders. The products are used in a range of mobile machinery applications, including heavy construction equipment, dump trucks, refuse collection, material handling and manlift equipment.
Hercules also supplies a range of replacement hydraulic cylinders to a similar customer base. The US business also services Central and South American and other selected markets through in‑country sub‑distributors.
Hercules in Canada offers a similar range of products from its branch operations located in the provinces of Ontario and Quebec.
HKX is based near Seattle, Washington and supplies hydraulic kits used in the installation of attachments on excavators. HKX’s colour coded kit systems, with "lego-logic" instructions, substantially reduce the time and engineering expertise required to install attachments.
