Vehicle with Two Hydrostatic Transmissions

The vehicle shown in Fig. 6.14 has a separate in-line hydrostatic transmission for each drive wheel. The engine delivers power via a universal joint driveline to a right-angle drive gearbox. Each side of this gearbox powers an inline hydrostatic transmission. The wheel is connected to the hydraulic motor. A final drive may or may not …

Advantages of Hydrostatic Transmissions

{0 Comments}

A hydrostatic transmission provides improved maneuverability, but at a cost. The efficiency of a hydrostatic transmission is always lower than a discrete-gear transmission. A discrete-gear transmission will typically have an efficiency of 95% or greater, meaning that 95% of the input energy is delivered to the load (wheels). A hydrostatic transmission has an efficiency of …

Introduction to Hydrostatic Transmissions

A hydrostatic transmission (HST) is simply a pump and motor connected in a circuit. Other components are added to obtain certain operating features. The four basic configurations of hydrostatic transmissions are : 1. In-line (Fig. 6.10a) 2. U-shape (Fig. 6.10b) 3. S-shape (Fig. 6.10c) 4. Split (Fig. 6.10d) Various pump and motor designs can be …
