    Default Learning How / Hydraulics

    Like to ask for reccommendations of basic texts on "beginner hydraulics" so I can start to learn the things I'll need to know about the systems on my soon-to-be-new tractor...something beyond (or fundamental-to) what my owner's manuals may tell me.

    Anybody got a good "introduction-to" book?

    Good grief Gordon, now I know more than I ever wanted to know about hydraulics thanks to you and

    Now that I have finally figured out how Hydrostatic Drive Kubotas work I have a question.
    Does it hurt for them to sit and idle for long periods with the same fluid in the pump when it is at zero displacement?
    Do they instead bleed some fluid off so a fresh supply of cool oil is always flowing through the pump even at zero displacement?
    Enquiring minds want to know and they also want a hydrostatic drive kubota!

    Parker Controls' engineering staff publishes a series of real good stuff on hydraulics and pneumatics. At least it's reputed to be good, and looks good...I was planning to buy a couple of the books when the truck decided it wanted a new transmission...and the money had to be scraped up from many sources... These books are available from the major industrial supply places like Grainger, MSC, McMaster-Carr, and those guys all have websites.
