This is a new class covering the subjects of drivelines, hydraulics, and hydrostatics as they apply to outdoor power equipment. Drivelines refer to the use of belts and manual/gear transmissions and transaxles. Hydraulics are widely used in outdoor power equipment from hydraulic lift systems for attachments on tractors and wood splitters to high pressure water sprayers. Hydrostatic transaxles, pumps and hydraulic motors are common in both traditional tractors and ZTRs. The need to understand how these things function is basic in order to diagnose and repair the systems when trouble occurs. The goal of this class is to provide you with the knowledge and hands-on experience to tackle the world of hydraulics.
This class will prepare you to take the EETC Driveline/Hydraulic/Hydrostatic certification exam. Tuition includes the cost of the exam.
