Yes I know it is a stupid question, but what EXACTLY does a hydro work? I getting a TT 48 soon and would like to know how my equipment works. Thanks

Grassin,

For me the best and most basic example is a waterwheel used before more modern energy sources were discovered or implemented.

In a water wheel system water flows down stream then onto the water wheel where the weight of the water and gravity force the wheel to turn creating a powered drive system.

The hydro system is a lot like that except everything is sealed and we are adding a pump to replace the stream/river and gravity. The hydraulic pressure from the pump forces fluid into the vanes of the wheel motor which creates motion to power the drive wheels. Does that make a little more sense?

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Thanks,

Terry
