Effortlessly calculate force, flow rate, and other parameters for push/pull hydraulic cylinders. Obtain rapid and precise results for all your hydraulic cylinder requirements!

Hydraulic cylinders are potent tools that offer linear force along a linear stroke. Manipulating the piston’s motion creates both push and pull forces. Utilize our calculator to determine these forces at various angles for hydraulic cylinders.

Push / Pull Hydraulic Cylinder formula

    \[\text{push} = \sin(\text{angle}) \cdot \text{PSI} \cdot \pi \cdot \frac{b_2}{4} \text{lbs.}\]

    \[\text{pull} = \sin(\text{angle}) \cdot \text{PSI} \cdot \pi \cdot \frac{b_2 - d_2}{4} \text{lbs.}\]

Make calculating the push/pull force of a hydraulic cylinder at any angle a breeze with the free online Push/Pull Calculator! Get accurate mechanical calculations quickly and easily.

These formulas calculate the force exerted by a hydraulic cylinder in a pushing or pulling motion, where:

  • push is the force in pounds (lbs) exerted by the cylinder in a pushing motion
  • pull is the force in pounds (lbs) exerted by the cylinder in a pulling motion
  • angle is the angle of the cylinder’s piston rod in radians
  • PSI is the pressure in pounds per square inch (psi) of the hydraulic fluid
  • b2 is the bore diameter of the cylinder in inches
  • d2 is the rod diameter of the cylinder in inches

The formulas use the sine of the piston rod angle, the hydraulic pressure, and the cylinder dimensions to calculate the force exerted in each direction. The push formula uses the full bore diameter, while the pull formula subtracts the rod diameter from the bore diameter to account for the reduced surface area available for force generation in a pulling motion.
