Hydraulic Clutch Pros and Cons:

|Smoother engagement||Repairs can be costly|
|No adjustment needed|
Hydraulic clutches are favored by drivers who desire a modern set-up. most significantly, They provide a neater and smoother treadle feel. Unlike mechanical clutches, they don’t require adjustment (as long as there’s clutch fluid). Hydraulic clutches self-adjust automatically.
