Product Description

Written by experienced technicians, Modern Diesel Technology: Heavy Equipment Systems, 2nd Edition combines manufacturer-based and universal information into a single, reliable resource. The book's unique focus on off-highway mobile equipment systems delivers service and repair essentials for heavy equipment, agricultural equipment, and powered lift truck technology. Detailing everything from safety to best practices, chapter coverage addresses four key areas: hydraulics, heavy duty brakes, and drivetrains, as well as steering, suspension, and track systems. The 2nd Edition of Modern Diesel Technology: Heavy Equipment Systems also includes the latest updates in computer-controlled hydraulics, GPS, and electronic controls for other systems to help you master the ever-evolving responsibilities of specialty technicians.
