Schweiss Doors Develops New ‘Red Power’ Hydraulic Pump

The Schweiss Red Power Pump

FAIRFAX, MINN. – Schweiss Doors, a Minnesota-based company, providing quality bifold and hydraulic one-piece doors for aircraft hangars, agricultural buildings, businesses and other installations, has developed a new, more powerful and smoother running hydraulic pump system, which goes by the trade name of “Red Power.”

Mike Schweiss, owner of the company, said since their hydraulic pump system was first introduced at various trade shows around the U.S., many pilots have been asking for it by name.

“Over the years, we rolled together our customer comments, combined with our knowledge and experience, and turned it over to our talented Schweiss design team to perfect,” said Schweiss. “What’s really nice for the buyer is that we don’t charge them a penny more for this new pump than they paid before. It goes on all our hydraulic doors and is made at our factory.”

The Red Power Hydraulic Pump comes to the buyer in a compact unit, ready to be mounted where the buyer wants it, whether it be on a wall, top-hung, floor or back room. Its power comes in 2 to 10 hp from a top quality LEESON motor, and offers superior electrical components.

The Safety Advantage System and three back-up systems are something buyers really like. They allow the door to lock up and down and safely lower the door in an emergency from ground level. The hydraulic directional control valve has a built in manual override. Back-up systems are all in the same compact unit. In case of electrical failure, a pilot or user can utilize a DC battery, tractor hydraulic or a drill with a 7/16 hex head to raise or lower the door.

Schweiss Doors also continues to manufacture its patented lift strap system for bifold doors as well.
