This ‘IN-PERSON’ training will enable participants to gain four days of hands-on instruction covering numerous styles of mobile machine hydraulic systems:
– Open Center, including 2-stage
– Pressure Compensated
– Dual flow constant horsepower
– Pre-Spool PSI compensated Load Sensing
– Flow Sharing
– Negative Flow Control
– Positive Flow Control
– Flow Summation
In addition to the numerous different hydraulic control systems, the lab experiences also include: pilot operated controls, overrunning loads, counterbalance valves, cavitation, and accumulators.
The last day of the workshop covers Hydrostatic Drives:– Hydrostatic Drive Fundamentals including deep dive into flushing valve examples and case drain– Numerous different hydrostatic controls. Some examples are IPOR, Pressure Cutoff, Pressure limiting, foot-and-inch valves, and anti-stall.– Numerous different motor applications: single speed, two-speed, single motor infinitely variable, dual motor infinitely variable.
– Hydrostatic Drive Adjustments
– Hydrostatic Drive Diagnostics


NEEDED SUPPLIES: Safety Glasses, Proper Attire (long pants, slacks or jeans) and optional (laptop, camera, notepad and pencil/pen).
