Sir,
We are planning to make a second edition of our combat robo and we are in With incorporating a hammer into it(Peen One).We thought of controlling it with a gear based arrangement using high torque motors but the this is beyond our mechanical acumen.
PLEASE TELL WHERE CAN WE GET COMPONENTS FOR THE HYDRAULIC BASED DESIGN IN INDIA(prefferable delhi)?
what is their indicative price?

Regards,

hydraulics cylinders itself are expensive piece of hardware and to power them you would need an accumulator and or a pump which will also be very costly
( i think it may cost around 5000 - 10000 for the entire setup to the best of my knowledge). if gears and motors are beyond your acumen, unless you have any experience in fluid power systems i would suggest you think twice before deciding on your power system.
