Hydrostatic Transmissions in Farm and Light Industrial Tractors 680570
Application of the hydrostatic transmission to a farm and light industrial tractor involved many special design and manufacturing considerations. A brief description of the transmission is given, and some of the special considerations along with their solutions are discussed. Emphasis is placed on the importance of having the proper control system to provide desirable performance and endurance characteristic for the tractor. Because the controls of a hydrostatic by necessity are quite different than for a conventional tractor, particular emphasis is placed on the control portion of the overall development program.
