Why Choose Gorilla Spares?
You may think that Gorilla Spares manufactures the parts we carry online, but we don’t. We actually serve as a marketplace, connecting companies that make aftermarket replacement components with customers they may not otherwise be able to reach. We don’t have any agreements with these companies, other than carrying their products. You will never have to worry about us trying to steer you in one direction or another, because, to be frank, we don’t have any incentive to do so.
Our main priority is making sure that all of our customers can purchase from us with confidence. That’s why we put all of the companies that make the parts you find on our site through a rigorous vetting process. We talk to their executives test their products, and take several other steps to make sure the parts you buy from us are durable and reliable.

How to Tell You Need a New Hydraulic Pump
All hydraulic system components are workhorses, but a hydraulic pump may work harder than any of them. As a result, pumps are the parts that are most prone to wear and tear. If you don’t pay close attention to them, they may malfunction and cause a complete system failure.
However, you can take steps to ensure your pumps last for several years. As long as you maintain them properly, they should deliver consistent, reliable performance. Like any other piece of machinery, though, a pump will need to be replaced. Here are a couple of indications it’s time to consider replacing yours.
- Strange noises – A hydraulic pump should operate smoothly, making very little noise. If you hear something odd coming from your equipment, that could mean you have a pump issue. This is especially the case when it comes to knocking or banging sounds. That could mean air has contaminated the hydraulic fluid in the pump. If you can spot where the air is coming in, you might be able to fix the problem. If not, then you may need to consider a replacement.
- Leaks – Your may pump may seem to be working fine, but it could have a leak. Check the inside of your pump periodically and look for liquid. If you see it, that might mean you just have a loose valve or seal. If the liquid is spewing from a broken line, you’ll probably need another pump.
