Hydrostatic Pump Bench Test
This hydrostatic pump set was sent into us by a customer in Griffith, off his skid steer.
Speed Week 2017
2017 was meant to be a big year for Rapid Performance at the Dry Lakes Racers Australia Speed Week which is held on Lake Gairdner in South Australia. This is a 150km long salt lake, 230km from civilisation.
Had a real head scratcher with this Gehl skid steer hydraulic system
The customer was complaining that the hydraulic system was operating slower than it should. Initial diagnosis after flow testing the auxiliary pump was that the pump was down on performance.
So we removed the Vickers ADU series piston pump and found it was not far from a major failure.
