About us

1950’s. Post war Finland – a time to reconstruct. The Sisu radial piston hub motor sees the light of day. Invented by the company Sisu Auto Oy this motor, as part of the wheel hub, gives the timber trucks required extra pull force to survive the extreme road conditions. Today, Sampo Hydraulics Ltd. is proud to pass on the heritage of this valuable Finnish invention. Our Black Bruin line represents the modern implementation of the original innovation, consisting of two product ranges: LSHT Motors and Rotators. The Black Bruin hydraulic motor is an updated version of the original Sisu motor, with exactly the same working principle by radial pistons pushed against the cam ring. However, the development to meet the ever increasing industry demands continues. Since the beginning, many strong companies in Finnish metal industry have contributed to the development of the Black Bruin products: Sisu, Partek, Valmet, Metso and the present owner since 2003, Sampo Rosenlew Ltd.
