Steering priority valves

Our steering priority valve OLS120

Steering comes first with our priority valves, for maximum safety on the road and on the job

A Danfoss priority valve will always give your steering system precedence. That makes it an important safety feature on load-sensing hydraulic systems where oil flow to the steering system and work hydraulics is supplied by just one pump.
