HYDRAULIC STEERING & HYDROSTATIC TRANSMISSION W/TROUBLESHOOTING + Add to wishlist

FP-MF300-VCLS-TS

The FP-MF300-VCLS-TS simulator is a “lean, mean troubleshooting teaching machine.” It has the same superb capability as the FP-MF300-VCLS model with the added benefit of making almost every hydraulic component “fail” at the flick of a switch!  The FP-MF300-VCLS-TS model trainers were designed to help schools and colleges safely and effectively troubleshooting industrial and mobile hydraulic systems.

 

Educational Advantages

  • Designed to have students understanding every component found in a typical articulated vehicle's steering, including dual steering cylinders
  • Designed to have students learning the hydrostatic transmission or closed-loop system
  • Designed to help schools and colleges overcome the critical shortage of highly-skilled hydraulic diagnostic technicians
  • Will aid an instructor in teaching students how to troubleshoot the following hydraulic steering system components:
    ○ Fixed displacement pump
    ○ Steering orbitrol valves
    ○ Priority flow dividers
    ○ Steering system’s main pressure relief valves
    ○ Dual cross-port relief valves
    ○ Single and dual steering cylinders
  • Will aid an instructor in teaching students how to troubleshoot the following hydrostatic transmission system components:
    ○ Transmission doesn’t operate in either direction – forward or reverse
    ○ Neutral is difficult or impossible to find
    ○ Transmission is overheating and lacks power
    ○ Transmission is sluggish
