Description
Heavy Equipment Power Trains and Systems will help educate college students who aspire to a career in the off highway industry, primarily servicing construction and agricultural machinery. The text is designed for postsecondary courses on power trains and related systems, which include brakes, suspension, tires and tracks, and steering. The text covers all the competencies required by AED for power trains, along with safety and selected critical functions in hydraulics/hydrostatics.
  • To appeal to visual learners, discussions of theory and servicing are supported with more than 1000 images comprised of multi-color line art, cross-sectional drawings, and photographs.
  • Technology examples are drawn from a variety of manufacturers in order to help students put theory into practice.
  • To supplement what students will learn in the shop, helpful techniques for diagnosing, servicing and repairing heavy equipment systems appear throughout the text.
