Overview

Modern Diesel Technology: Heavy Equipment Systems is the only textbook on the market that deals exclusively with off-highway mobile equipment systems. Designed to meet the specific needs of technicians in the specialty areas of heavy equipment, agricultural equipment, and powered lift truck technology, this book marks a valuable departure from the books aimed at truck technicians and the manufacturer-produced literature that specialty technicians have had to rely on for so long. The book begins with a chapter on basic safety, and is then broken down into four sections to address the four key elements of heavy equipment systems: hydraulics, heavy duty brake systems, drive train systems, and steering, suspension, and track systems. Written by an author team with extensive experience, both as professionals in the industry and as teachers of specialty technician programs, this book will provide readers with an in-depth understanding of the skills and concepts needed to be an effective technician in this specialty field.
