Basic Hydraulics

Without a basic understanding of the theories that dictate how hydraulic­based equipment operates, workers may be placing themselves at risk. Using narrated 3D animations, this course provides a detailed introduction to basic hydraulic theory, actuators, motors, pumps controls and hydraulic circuits. 3D models and cutaways are used extensively to demonstrate these concepts.
