The paper deals with the structural design and strength calculations using analytical and numerical method for a hydraulic arm to be mounted on the light truck chassis. The whole arm is made up of three parts of the steel structure, namely a cranking arm, a lifting arm, and a slewing column. We approached to strength calculations of these three parts of the hydraulic arm individually, using two methods to verify the safety of the designed structure. Loading of the arm will be induced by a burden of the total maximum weight = 300 kg.
