Description & Features+

When broken down, the word hydraulic comes from the Greek language meaning “water pipe”. A hydraulic system is simply a cylinder using a liquid and pressure, to deliver energy. This energy can be used to move objects. Typically when we hear the word hydraulics, we think of cars, and how mechanics use pressure to lift cars. Hydraulics are used all around us, from making our cars move and stop, to pumping water into our homes. Even a person’s heart is a hydraulic system at its foundation, pumping blood throughout the body.

Ratings & Reviews+

Think Box Build Your Own Hydraulic Machines by Horizon Group USA is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frustrating This kept falling apart as we were building it. I don't know if we needed more glue in places but the instructions didn't address how to glue it at all, and we were unsure where to glue because some parts needed to move. The tubes were very small and difficult to fit onto the plungers. In the end it "sort of" worked but as we made it move, it fell apart again! We did not try to make the second machine yet, but we are so discouraged by the first one that I doubt we will. The age on the box says 8+, but considering how much trouble my son and I had, I don't think many kids that age would be successful with this without help.
